The Golden Knights continue dominating and impressing fans under the new reign of head coach Bruce Cassidy. The VGK hosted the Winnipeg Jets, who they previously just faced at home last week back on October 20th.

Since Logan Thompson played a spectacular night against the Anaheim Ducks, Adin Hill got the green light to start in the net tonight against the Jets.

On Halloween eve, the first period started on a weird note for the Knights; Vegas was getting a lot of shots on goal but could not capitalize on them. The VGK was even gifted with two power plays and still could not answer with any goals, as the period ended 0-0.

The second period was pretty much the same, only that, in that period alone, the Golden Knights outshot the Jets 33-8, which was about 15 more than the first period. But much like in the first period, the Golden Knights were again on the power play due to a cross-checking call on Winnipeg’s Josh Morrissey. But the VGK strangely could not find any answers as the second period remained scoreless. It was. A pretty strange way to go through the first two periods, but then again, it is the eve of Halloween


Things started off even scarier in the third period.

About 13 seconds into the third, the Jets took the lead from a goal from Adam Lowry to make the score 1-0 early. It was only the third time in 10 games the Golden Knights allowed the opposition to score first, while it marked the seventh time in eight games the Jets was the first to score in their games.

But VGK, known to bounce back with their backs against the wall, were not going to let the game get out of reach until Mark Stone scored from an assist from Jack Eichel to tie the game at 1-1.

The game remained consistent, with VGK even successfully killing off Winnipeg’s power play, but this game was going into the first overtime of this season at the Fortress. The Jets, who were 2-0 in overtime so far, had their season-best, three-game winning streak brought to a halt.

With the game going into overtime, both teams got a point, which was good for Vegas already, but getting a win at home would be even better before hitting their five-game road trip.

Overtime started off back and forth between both teams, with Vegas having the offensive edge throughout. Towards the end, it looked like the game would end in a shootout, but with over a minute left, Jack Eichel came in to save the night for Vegas as he finished the game and got the victory for the Knights 2-1 in overtime.

Adin Hill ended the night with 24 saves, and Mark Stone got his first goal at home. The victory for Vegas was also a milestone for head coach Bruce Cassidy, as he got his 300th career victory as a coach.


The Golden Knights will hit the road on Tuesday as they face the Washington Capitals at 4:00 pm. The game can be seen on AT&T Sports Net.
