Our Vegas Golden Knights got back on the winning track with a 4-1 win over Arizona on Thursday night in front of the home crowd at T-Mobile Arena.
After a nine game winning streak including winning all five games of a Canadian road swing last week, the Knights had faltered slightly, losing two games in a row, both at home.
Alex Pietrangelo helped put Vegas back into the win column with a goal and two assists. Mark Stone, William Carrier, and Jonathan Marchessault each notched a goal for the Knights.
Vegas now goes back on the road for two more games in Canada, starting with a game on Saturday in Edmonton at 7pm before moving on to Vancouver to battle the Canucks on Monday, Nov. 21 at 7:30pm.
The Golden Knights will return home for a three game homestand starting on Wednesday, Nov 23 against Ottawa at T-Mobile Arena. Game time is 7pm. If you’re looking for some post Thanksgiving excitement the Knights play Seattle on Friday, Nov. 25 at 5pm before wrapping up the homestand with a game on the following evening at 7pm against Vancouver.
The Knights’ play this season has been a pleasant surprise to say the least. After losing star players such as Max Pacioretty and Alex Tuch, not to mention fan favorite Ryan Reaves and with a new coach in Bruce Cassidy coming in, it’s safe to say that most observers figured that Vegas would have an average season at best. The Knights have proven that assessment wrong and have embraced their new coach’s system and are playing much better on defense.
Let’s keep it going Knights!!
