VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 7 SAN JOSE SHARKS 3 (41-27-5 87 PTS)

It was a wild first period in San Jose. The Sharks needed only :30 seconds to score their first goal, but the barnburner was just beginning. William Karlsson would earn his 20th goal of the season three minutes later to tie the game 1-1.

Mark Stone would give Vegas the lead 2-1 on his third goal as a Golden Knight and his second in back-to-back nights. Stone’s goal was the Golden Knights first PP goal in four games. The lead wouldn’t last long as 39-year-old Joe Thornton tied the game on a high zone shot. However, Vegas would get the last goal of the period on Jonathan Marchessault’s 23rd. After an exciting opening twenty minutes VGK held the 3-2 edge.

It was a penalty filled second period, as both teams had multiple man-advantages. It took a while but Vegas would score their second PP goal of the night doubling up the Sharks 4-2. Paul Stastny nabbed his tenth goal of the season and his fifth points in the last five games. After a chippy two periods, the Golden Knights held a two-goal lead.

You would’ve thought that the Harlem Globetrotters took the ice for Vegas to start the third period. Reilly Smith created a turnover in the Sharks zone and began a combination of beautiful passes setting up for the Golden Knights fifth goal of the game. Smith played back and fourth with Karlsson to create a commanding 5-2 lead. San Jose’s Logan Couture added his second to get the Sharks within two. Marchessault and Cody Eakin would add two more late goals to blow out their Pacific rivals. The game ended in a lopsided 7-3 contest won by the Golden Knights.

Vegas improves their record to (41-27-5) and remain in the Pacific Division’s third place position, with nine games left to play. The team will get back on the ice Thursday as Vegas will host the Winnipeg Jets. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7PM (Recap by Jason)
