After Jiri Patera started against the St. Louis Blues, Jonathan Quick was back in goal for the VGK. Fellow trade deadline acquisition Ivan Barbabashev scored two goals Tuesday.

Phil Kessel and Michael Amadio switched places in the lineup, and with Carter Hart sick, Felix Sandstrom started for the Flyers.


  • Shea Theodore blasted a long shot from the point to get the Golden Knight's first shot of the game.
  • Jonathan Marchessault found Ivan Barbashev in the slot for a quality chance, but Felxi Sandstrom made the save.
  • PHI PP- Noah Cates was tripped by Nicolas Hague.
  • Rasmus Ristolainen tipped a point shot from Owen Tippett, and Jonathan Quick made a sprawling save.
  • Shea Theodore made a good physical defensive play on Owen Tippett to prevent him from getting to the net.
  • 1-0 VGK GOAL- Pavel Dorofeyev slipped by defenders and roofed his second career goal with a nice play.

  • Jonathan Quick made two big saves on both Scott Laughton and Travis Sanheim.

  • 4-3 PHI GOAL- The Flyers made it a one-goal game with Morgan Frost crashing the net and receiving a pass.
  • William Karlsson's pass went through Flyer's defensemen and found Reilly Smith in the slot for a chance.

VHN's Player of the Game: Ivan Barbashev.

Barbie had a great game as he used his physicality to provide the Golden Knights with a net-front presence. Two goals too.

Up Next: The Golden Knights will return home on Thursday for a 7:00 p.m. game against the Calgary Flames.
