The Golden Knights hosted the Blue Jackets for their last home game of their seven-game homestand and we were able to give one lucky fan tickets and a ride on the Zamboni. Vegas took two penalties in the 1st period and one ended up costing them the first goal of the game. It was the sixth straight game that Vegas allowed the visiting team to score first. Columbus lead 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes.
The Blue Jackets doubled up their lead 2:06 into the 2nd period. Vegas would try and play catch up for the rest of the middle frame. The Golden Knights were awarded two power plays but couldn’t convert. They continued to trail Columbus 2-0.
Vegas struggled again to generate any offense, and Columbus took advantage. The Blue Jackets stretched their lead to 3-0 deep into the 3rd period.
Vegas’ record drops to 24-18-6 and remain with 54 points. The Golden Knights hit the road and play next on Tuesday in Buffalo. The start time is scheduled for 4P.
