Las Vegas–Tonight while the Vegas Golden Knights were on the road taking on the Vancouver Canucks north of the border, the organization along with “Born And Raised”, hosted “The Get Knighted” Watch Party where fans filled to capacity.

Staff members at “Born And Raised” tonight during “The Get Knighted” Watch Party worked tirelessly in serving the Vegas Golden Knights faith with appetizers, drinks, and entrees making sure their tummies were filled as throughout the course of the game.

In the opening 5 minutes of the game, the Golden Knights opened the scoring with David Perron as he made a slick toe-drag move and fired his wrister shot past Vancouver’s Jacob Markstrom for his 6th of the season. Perron’s marker was possible by Nate Schmidt and Erik Haula at 3:22 of the 1st.

Later in the period, the Golden Knights found themselves on the scoring side once again and this time it was Alex Tuch‘s backhand pass who found William Karlsson who ended up going upstairs on Markstrom with 7:00 left in the first period. Karlsson recorded his 7th of the season on Vegas’s second of the night.

During the 1st intermission, Golden Knights fans that attended “The Get Knighted” Watch Party at “Born And Raised”, had the opportunity to take part in getting knighted by “The Golden Knight”.

With 7:29 remaining in the middle period Brock Boeser put Vancouver on the board as his wrister shot beat Maxime Lagace and ended his shutout bid of the night. Boeser connected with his 6th of the year.

Bo Harvat tied the game up for Vancouver, 2-2 at the 17:18 mark of the 2nd period when a scramble ensued in front of Vegas’s net. Harvat cashed in the loose puck and tapped it past Lagace. This was Harvat’s 8th goal on the current campaign.

59.7 left in the middle period, a fan in the crowd at Rogers Arena was hit with a flying puck that caused the refs to stop the game and sent the players from both benches to their respected dressing rooms.

Before the start of the 3rd period, both teams burned the remaining 59.7 seconds of the previous period.

At the 6:27 mark of the 3rd period, Haula broke the 2-2 deadlock when Markstrom left his net exposed, Haula went backdoor high to give the Golden Knights a 3-2 lead over Vancouver. This was Haula’s 6th of the season.

In late stages of the final period thanks to a great individual effort, Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault capitalized on a turnover by Vancouver’s Derrick Pouliot in the Canucks end and he dished his backhander five-hole past Markstrom at the 16:55 mark. Marchessault tallied his 5th goal unassisted.
