Golden Knights Knock Off Canucks in 6-3 Victory | Vegas Golden Knights

An offensive outburst from the Vegas Golden Knights (42-25-8) saw the club take down the Pacific Division-leading the Vancouver Canucks (46-21-8) in a 6-3 win on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena. HOW IT WENT DOWN Vegas struck just 1:37 into the first period as Anthony Mantha buried a rebound in an open net. Jonathan Marchessault’s goal gave the Golden Knights a two-goal lead at 6:23 as he ripped a shot past Canucks goaltender Casey DeSmith. Vancouver managed to find the back of the net at 10:40 of the first, but Jack Eichel had the answer for the Golden Knights 20 seconds later as he put the puck in from the top of the crease for the 3-1 tally. Noah Hanifin potted a power-play goal from the point with just over five minutes left in the opening frame to end the five-goal first period. William Karlsson continued the scoring on the man advantage 1:45 into the middle frame, tapping in a rebound that popped out behind DeSmith. The Canucks tallied their own power-play goal just over four minutes later to make it 5-2. In the third, Vancouver’s Quinn Hughes turned it into a 5-3 game 1:39 into the frame. Brett Howden regained the three-goal lead for Vegas 24 seconds later to become the sixth Golden Knight to score a goal. The Golden Knights skated away with the 6-3 win and two points.
