Golden Knights send Blackhawks to 6th straight loss

LAS VEGAS – Jonathan Marchessault and Alex Tuch scored 12 seconds apart in the third period to send the surging Vegas Golden Knights past the Blackhawks, 4-3, on Thursday night.

Vegas won for the seventh time in eight games and moved into a third-place tie with San Jose in the Pacific Division with 33 points. The Hawks, meanwhile, dropped their sixth straight and have been outscored, 30-17, during the skid.

After allowing the Hawks to score three consecutive goals for a 3-2 lead in the third, the defending Western Conference champions responded. Marchessault fired a shot past goalie Corey Crawford to tie the game, and 12 seconds later it was Tuch punching one in to put Vegas back in front.

Reilly Smith and Deryk Engelland also scored for the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 32 shots.

Jonathan Toews, Dylan Strome and Artem Anisimov scored for the Hawks. Crawford made 32 saves.
