For a second game the Golden Knights Phil Kessel set the tone with an early goal and VGK held on for a 4-3 road win in Vancouver Tuesday night. The Canucks were sloppy early and two turnovers led to Kessel's goal and a goal for red-hot Reilly Smith who has a nine-game scoring streak. The Golden Knights started Jonathan Quick in net and Logan Thompson served as his backup. With the win, Quick moves up to second all-time in victories for an American goaltender. VGK's Nic Roy and Keegan Kolesar are also on the trip but didn't suit up. Shea Theodore was shaken up and taken to the dressing room, but he later returned to the lineup. Chris bought up stats about the Golden Knights' second period scoring improvement since the All-Star break. And we give kudos to Kessel and Pavel Dorofeyev for their play of late.
