Seven proves to be lucky number for Knights against Canucks

The Vegas Golden Knights improved to 9-6 on the season after defeating the Vancouver Canucks by a final score of 7-4 on Saturday, Nov. 13 from the T-Mobile Arena.

It was the third game amidst a six-game homestand for the Knights.

The homestand continues Tuesday, Nov. 16 as VGK will welcome the Carolina Hurricanes into the T-Mobile Arena.

Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. PST and can be seen on AT&T Sportsnet.

Vancouver raced out to a fast start in the game as center J.T. Miller scored the game’s opening goal just 3:09 into the game to give the Canucks a 1-0 lead.

The scoring wouldn’t slow down from there as just two minutes later, left-wing Tanner Pearson put a shot to the back of the net to extend the Vancouver lead out to 2-0.

The Knights would fight their way back towards the end of the period as right-wing Evgenii Dadonov got Vegas on the board with only 14 seconds remaining in the period off a power play goal. Vancouver took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

The second period saw much of the same high-scoring intensity on both sides.

Right-wing Reilly Smith registered his first goal of the evening nearly six minutes into the period to make it a 2-2 game.

Next, it would be defenseman Brayden McNabb’s turn to get in on the scoring when he found the back of the net with about nine minutes to play in the second to give Vegas a 3-2 lead.

With less than three minutes to play in the period, Vancouver’s Nils Hoglander tied the contest up at three heading into the second intermission.

In the first three minutes of the period, each team traded a goal with center Jake Leschyshyn striking first for Vegas only 2:20 into the final period to give Vegas a brief 4-3 lead.

The lead would only last for 52 seconds as Hoglander picked up his second goal of the game to make it a 4-4 tie.

Vegas found the gas pedal the rest of the game as the team proceeded to string off three straight goals.

The first came off the stick of center Jonathan Marchessault near the midway point of the period to give his team a 5-4 lead.

Dadonov recorded the second with six minutes remaining to extend the VGK lead to 6-4.

Marchessault joined Dadonov scoring his second goal of the night with 4:30 left in the game to put the icing on the cake for Vegas and wrap up a 7-4 victory over Vancouver.
