Cashed Out: Vegas Golden Knights 4, Florida Panthers 2

Florida panthers

The Florida Panthers thought they had the Vegas Golden Knights right where they wantedt them

Until they didn’t.

Anton Lundell appeared to put them up by two goals with a wide-angle shot from the goal line, but the Golden Knights challenged it for offside.

The challenge was successful — as Lundell lost possession of the puck while entering the zone — and rode the momentum to a 4-2 win.

Jack Eichel tied things up near the midway point of the third period and William Carrier finished things off to help them secure the victory.

Maurice challenged Carrier’s late winner with 2:36 to go as he took out Sergei Bobrovsky while driving the net, but it was determined that Brandon Montour aided in taking him out.

The Panthers fall below the .500 mark on the season as they finish this four-game road trip 2-2-0.

Their struggles in Vegas continue as they are now 0-4-1 all-time at T-Mobile Arena.

They now sit six points back of the Pittsburgh Penguins — with three more games played — before they come home for one game against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

The road ahead does not get much easier for the Panthers.

After Saturday’s game, they will play five of their next six games on the road and will face off against five teams over .500.

GOALS OF THE GAME

  • Panthers 1, Golden Knights 0 (2:03, 1st): Nick Cousins was awarded a goal after Ben Hutton hit Eric Staal into the net, causing the net to come off as Cousins was shooting a rebound into an open goal.
  • Golden Knights 1, Panthers 1 (4:08, 2nd): Nicolas Roy beats Sergei Bobrovsky on a 2-on-1 off a feed from Keegan Kolesar via a flubbed pass from Sasha Barkov to Brandon Montour.

LUNDELL SHINES ON WING, BUT NO GOAL

Anton Lundell has adjusted well to his new spot on the wing — becoming a more aggressive shooter and being harder on the puck in the offensive zone.

That almost paid off with a goal.

He beat Adin Hill with a beauty of a wide-angle shot from the goal line, but it was ruled a no goal upon video review. It was determined that Lundell lost possession of the puck as he was crossing the blue line and was offside on the play.

 COLBY’S THREE STARS OF THE GAME

1. Jack Eichel, Vegas (game-tying goal)

2. William Carrier, Vegas (game-winning goal)

Play like I saw in the first 40 fir a full 60 and seriously above 500 teams are not a concern. It’s letting up that’s doing it to them…

Once again, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

The Panthers will never win a 50-50 call in the NHL, when they say it’s a “Judgment call”, you know what’s coming will NOT be beneficial to the CATS.. I’m telling you, it’s from that referee getting popped in the head with the plastic rat 18 years ago, they still hold that against us.
