William Carrier scored his goal at 12:57, slipping the puck beneath Georgiev’s right pad, giving his team a 3-0 lead.
Shortly after, Eichel capitalized on a power play opportunity at 13:49, taking a perfect pass from Stone and making it 4-0.
Stone reflected on the team’s success, saying, “There’s a saying, ‘Possession before position.’ We’ve been doing a great job of adapting to what’s presented to us. In the past, we were too stationary, just finding our spots. But now, we’re moving the puck and creating movement on the ice. This has made us a formidable 5-on-5 team, and incorporating that into our power play has made us even stronger.”
Stone continued to impress in the third period, scoring his second short-handed goal at 3:22. He showcased his speed by beating Devon Toews to a loose puck in the offensive zone, extending the lead to 5-0.
Amidst his outstanding performance, Stone shared a lighthearted moment. He revealed that Ottawa forward Brady Tkachuk had texted him, teasingly claiming that they were the slowest players in the league. Stone jokingly commented, “So, I can’t wait to send him this video.”
Karlsson contributed to the team’s success, scoring two goals. He found the back of the net at 9:13 and later at 14:43, securing the 7-0 victory. Karlsson’s nine-game point streak, featuring 13 points (six goals, seven assists), ties the record for the longest streak in Vegas history.
NOTES: Mikko Rantanen of the Colorado team reached a milestone, playing his 500th NHL game. Furthermore, Stone became the first Golden Knights player to score two short-handed goals in a game. Additionally, his outstanding performance earned him his fifth four-point game, tying Chandler Stephenson for the most in Vegas history.
