SAN OSE OS, California. (AP) – Alex Pooh scored twice, and Marc-Andre Fleury scored his fourth NHL breakout after a rare night, helping the Vegas Golden Knights beat the San Jose Sharks 4-0 on Saturday.
The goals were scored by Mark Stone and Riley Smith. Pooh and Fleury inflicted damage on the rest when the Golden Knights defeated each other in San Jose, spreading their winning streak to six games.
“We used to have pretty good competition,” said Vegas striker Jon Onatan Marceso. “It simply came to our notice then. It is always good to win. “We came here to do business.”
Fleury made his 24th save for his 65th closing of his career.
Devan Dubnyk stopped 28 shots as the Sharks lost for the fifth time in the first six games of the seven-game Family Championship, the longest of their season. San Jose has conceded 28 goals in this area, as ուբ Dubnik և ones Martin ounces are struggling to secure a strong goalkeeper.
The crime was also a problem in this one, when San Jose missed two of the top six strikers. Thomas Hertl has been on the COVID-19 list since February 24, and Timo Mayer has been scratched with a low body injury.
“I thought we were working hard,” said coach Bob Buffner. “I thought we did a lot of good things. Fleury, in my opinion, was the difference in the first half of the game. I thought we should wear it to the end. “
The sharks managed to create several opportunities, but after resting on Friday night, Flori was more than that. He started 10 straight games before that break and his return was very sharp.
Flair played well against Kevin Labanch, then ruled out El Oel Kelman for parting in the first round. That save led to the possibility that Stone converted into a goal in the game with Chandler Stephenson in the 1st gear and turned it into a goal. That gave Stone 10 points in his last four games, but he warned in the third round for precautionary reasons.
“It was huge. “A little momentum when the er bow stopped that one,” Stevenson said. “It simply came to our notice then. “Nice on the road, it’s nice to go out in the lead.”
Fleury grabbed Leon on Leonard from close range in the first half and back again in the second half. Then Pooh ruled from there.
In the second minute, he made a quick shot through Dubnik, making it 2-0, and then scored again, thanks to a successful return. The attempt to remove Brent Burns hit his teammate Logan Couture, և the ball went straight to Tuch, who pushed back the open net.
That’s Tukh scoring eight goals in the last seven games of this season և 12 games in 21 games. Last season, he scored just eight goals in 42 games.
“Probably a little luck,” Tuch said. “I’m just trying to play my game, play hard, play fast, have enough chemistry with my underwear.”
The Golden Knights were surprised by their two-game San Jose trip. After eating their pre-election meal at the hotel on Friday, they were told they had to pack up and find new accommodation as the Fairmont Hotel declared bankruptcy and closed immediately. The team found a new hotel on Friday night and stayed there.
“I think this is the first for all three of our team,” said defender Hickden.
