Marchessault's Natural Hat Trick Lifts Golden Knights To 4-3 Win

Vegas improves to 2-0-0 on road trip

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Jonathan Marchessault scored three times in the third period to propel the Vegas Golden Knights (15-11-4) to their third straight win against the New Jersey Devils (9-14-4) on Tuesday night at Prudential Center.

HOW IT WENT DOWN
The Devils took a 1-0 lead in the first period on a goal from Kyle Palmieri. Chandler Stephenson answered in the second frame in his first game with Vegas to knot the score at 1-1. A late second-period goal from Jesper Bratt sent New Jersey into the third stanza with a 2-1 edge. Marchessault erased the Devils' lead by scoring a natural hat trick in the third period to give the Golden Knights a 4-2 lead. Nico Hischier scored for the Devils to cut the lead to 4-3, but Malcolm Subban held off the late comeback bid to secure the win for Vegas.

TURNING POINT
With New Jersey leading by a goal heading into the third, Marchessault took matters into his own hands by recording the natural hat trick to completely turn the tide for the Golden Knights.
