The red hot Vegas Golden Knights opened a quick three game Canadian road trip with a 4-3 win over the Canucks in Vancouver on Tuesday night. The win was the Knights sixth in the last seven games and they have won their last five road games. Vegas also has the second best record in the NHL since the All-Star break at 15-3-2.

The Knights jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period behind goals from Phil Kessel and Reilly Smith. Vancouver made it 2-1 in the second period before Teddy Blueger scored for Vegas to make it 3-1. Rookie Pavel Dorofeyev scored to give the Knights a 4-2 lead going into the third period. Goalie Jonathan Quick took over from there, making some crucial saves down the stretch and finishing with 32 saves for the game.

Quick is now 5-1 for Vegas after coming over in a trade with L.A. The win was his 375th and he now ranks second in all time wins by an American player.

Vegas now moves on to Calgary to face the Flames on Thursday at 6pm and will wrap up the trip in Edmonton against the Oilers on Saturday at 7pm.

The Knights are in first place in the Pacific Division with an overall record of 44-21-6 and have 94 points, two points ahead of second place L.A. The Knights return home to the fortress on Tuesday, March 28 vs. Edmonton.

Keep up the good play Knights!!
