The Vegas Golden Knights dropped Tuesday night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2. The Hurricanes were all over the Golden Knights with their passing game, making smart and creative plays that even Robin Lehner was unable to stop.
Nonetheless, it was a good hard-fought game for the Golden Knights who ran into a brick wall by the name of Antti Raanta, who made some stellar saves Tuesday evening. The Golden Knights will look to rebound Thursday night against the Detroit Red Wings.
But on the injury front, things may have taken a turn for the worse for the Golden Knights as both Shea Theodore and Evgenii Dadonov left the game with injuries. Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer did not have any injury updates on either player postagame.
Vegas: Robin Lehner was not too happy with the bad bounce that led to the Hurricanes’ go-ahead goal Tuesday night, going as far as to blame his goalie stick.
The Athletic (Vegas): Jake Leschyshyn played against the Carolina Hurricanes last night for the first time in his career, a team in which his father Curtis played parts of his long NHL career. Leschyshyn has been around the NHL since he was born.
