The Golden Knights took on the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night in Toronto. VGK was looking to avenge their  7-3 loss last week at T-Mobile Arena. It was also a step in the right direction, as the Golden Knights previously lost five of their last six games.

The Golden Knights were looking to start a new trend after getting a point in a 4-3 shootout loss to Ottawa. VGK got two more points Tuesday as they beat down the Maple Leafs, 6-2 at Rogers Centre.

The Maple Leafs had just handed the Golden Knights their worst home loss of the season. The final score was 7-3 in favor of Toronto at the end of that game, but it was not that close.

This game started quietly, and both teams were scoreless after the first period, but Ivan Barbashev started the party with a second-period breakaway goal, his 14th on the season.

Mason Morelli added a goal shortly after, scoring on a solid deflection of Shea Theodore’s shot. Theodore has been a points machine since returning to the lineup and added three more assists Tuesday. He has eight points in the last four games.

Tyler Bertuzzi put Toronto on the board with his 11th goal at 2:15 of the second, but the Golden Knights quickly responded. William Karlsson netted his 20th goal of the season, and the Golden Knights led 3-1.

Midway through the third period, the Golden Knights broke the game open.

Jonathan Marchessault scored his 31st goal of the season. Former Vegas Golden Knight Ryan Reaves gave Toronto some hope with his third goal with 5:25 left. However, Marchessault added another, his 32nd, which is a career-high. Shortly after, Nic Roy put the game out of reach with his 11th goal of the year.

Emotions were high for the Toronto Maple Leafs. They took four penalties in the game, and coach Sheldon Keefe was booted in the third period. The Golden Knights win ended Toronto’s seven-game winning streak.

The Golden Knights got two key points, keeping some distance between them and the third-place Edmonton Oilers. The VGK also outshot Toronto 32-30, which was the complete opposite of Thursday night’s game when it was 42-26 in favor of the Maple Leafs.


The Golden Knights stay on the road to take on the Boston Bruins on Thursday, February 29th, at 4:00 p.m. PST. Thanks for visiting for your Las Vegas Sports news today.
