Golden Knights 7th seasons

For the seventh time in seven seasons with Vegas, Conn Smythe Award winner Marchessault scored in the opening game of the season.

The Golden Knights also had goals from Jack Eichel, Ivan Barbashev, and Chandler Stephenson.

The Golden Knights had a better record at home, going 6-1-0, with their lone loss coming against Philadelphia in 2018. In those contests, Vegas enjoys a 26-14 advantage against the foreigners.

Seattle’s lone goal was scored by Jared McCann. 24 saves were made by Philipp Grubauer.

Knights Vs Kraken

When Mark Stone, Brett Howden, and Stephenson played tic-tac-toe in the attacking zone, Vegas started scoring early in the first session. Stone moved across the ice as they crossed the blue line and passed to Howden, who threw the puck to the crease where Stephenson was waiting to score.

Seattle’s Brandon Tanev attempted to clear the puck beyond the goal, but Marchessault pinched it off course and past Grubauer to give the Golden Knights a 2-0 lead.

At 1:20 of the second period, Barbashev scored a breakaway goal to make it 3-0. Midway in the period, Seattle responded when McCann’s wrist shot from the slot flew past Hill.

When Howden was given a game penalty for shooting Tanev in the head midway through the third, the Kraken had plenty of opportunities. But Hill was exceptional in making six stops during the Golden Knights’ penalty kill, just as he was in remaining strong throughout their Stanley Cup run.

 It was something that we tried to improve on training camp, just trying to be aggressive and err on the side of aggressiveness. We did that in my opinion tonight, and I felt our penalty kill was excellent. Of course they’ll get a few glances, but we did a decent job of keeping it to a minimum Kraken.

We had enough opportunities to score, according to Seattle coach Dave Hakstol. We had a couple very beautiful opportunities that we really executed the play efficiently, but we didn’t take advantage of; in the early parts of the hockey game, we could have done a few of them a little bit better. We’ve done a lot of excellent things in the first quarter, and all of a sudden we’re down 2-0. You are now excavating your way out of a large hole. In the end, whether it was during a 5 on 5 situation or a power play, we failed to take advantage of our golden opportunities.

DAMAGE UPDATE Golden Kinghts Vs. Kraken

William Carrier, a forward with the Golden Knights, was injured during the second period and was unable to continue. After blocking a shot with his left hand in the second period, Seattle forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare also got up from the bench. For the third quarter, he came back.

At 8:19, McCann brought Seattle within 3-1. After Jordan Eberle’s pass, which was meant for Justin Schultz, bounced to him off Marchessault’s skate, he scored from the low slot over Hill’s left shoulder.

At 18:45 in the third period, Jack Eichel scored an empty-net goal to make the score 4-1.

The victory brought an end to a busy few days for Vegas, which on Sunday received its title rings and watched “Monday Night Football” between the Green Bay Packers and the Las Vegas Raiders.

Your life was quite busy; try to be proud of our accomplishments and get ready for the upcoming season. The sensation of watching a flag is incredible.
