A two-goal lead is usually safe for the Golden Knights. It took a little extra on Saturday, but Vegas still came out on top.
The Golden Knights gave up a pair of goals in the third period to erase a two-goal lead and send the game to overtime at Arizona, but Jonathan Marchessault came up with the power-play winner in extra frame to boost Vegas to a 3-2 victory over the Coyotes at Gila River Arena.
There was added motivation for Marchessault in overtime after he took a slashing call in a tie game with 2:40 remaining. It didn’t hurt Vegas, but he was happy to be the one to win it.
