On Saturday, the Golden Knights took on the Columbus Blue Jackets at T-Mobile Arena. VGK was looking for their fifth win in their last seven games.

The Golden Knights hoped for some payback for Vegas’ loss in Columbus earlier this month. Led by Jack Eichel’s two goals, the Golden Knights beat the Blue Jackets 4-2. But in the win, VGK goaltender Adin Hill left early with an injury.

Our overall game, I like where it’s at, and we’re going to need it,” VGK coach Bruce Cassidy said following the game. “It’s an important week.”

We haven’t given them much,defenseman Ben Hutton said of the VGK opponents. “We’re limiting their chances, and we’re playing in their end a lot.

With the assist on the goal, Zach Werenski moved into second place all-time on the Blue Jacket’s assist list.

We knew we weren’t in trouble,Cassidy said after the game. “We had to get going, and we did.

I thought we were able to read off each other well,” Eichel said. “I thought it was encouraging for the line to play well, and everyone chipped in.

Jack Eichel recorded his 500th career point at 4:57 off a rebound from the bottom of the left circle to give Vegas a 2-1 lead after Kirill Marchenko hit the post on the other end.

It’s a cool milestone,Eichel said. “I’ve played with a lot of really great players on some great teams. It’s awesome being a part of this organization, playing here every night, and being a part of this group.

The Golden Knights led 2-1 after 40 minutes and took a 31-13 advantage in shots on goal into the third period.

Pavel Dorofeyev doubled Vegas‘ lead at 3:03 after making a nice move around Tarasov at the right doorstep. Some concerning news for Golden Knights fans: Logan Thompson replaced Hill in the Vegas net after Hill left the game in discomfort at 16:00.

Eichel scored his second of the night with a left-circle wrist shot on the power play at 17:18.

Carson Meyer scored his first goal of the season when he cleaned up a rebound at the right doorstep at 19:48. VGK defeated the Blue Jackets 4-2 in front of a happy Golden Knights crowd.

He came to the bench and said he wasn’t feeling 100 percent, so we made the switch,” Cassidy said of Hill after the game. “Obviously, if he’s not able to go, we’ll have to look to Henderson and get some help there. But right now, I don’t want to speculate.

 

The Golden Knights are on the road to take on the St. Louis Blues on Monday, March 25th, at 5:00 p.m. Thanks for visiting FranchiseSportsMedia.com for your Las Vegas Sports news today.
