LAS VEGAS (AP) — Oscar Dansk stopped 29 shots for his second career win in two appearances, and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Tuesday night for their fourth straight victory.
Dansk made his first NHL start after replacing injured Malcolm Subban during a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. The 23-year-old gave up goals to John Hayden and Patrick Kane, but was otherwise stellar for the Golden Knights.
Vegas is the 10th expansion team to put together a four-game winning streak. The Golden Knights are 7-1-0 in their inaugural season.
This one didn't start so promising. Hayden stuffed one past Dansk just 3:33 minutes into the game for a short-handed goal.
The Golden Knights didn't take long to answer. William Karlsson tipped Colin Millers' shot from the point past Chicago's Corey Crawford.
A little over a minute later, Tomas Nosek pushed Deryk Engelland's rebound under Crawford's pads to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead.
Pierre-Edourard Bellemare extended the lead to 3-1 late in the second when he smacked Nosek's pass from behind the net past Crawford.
Activated from the injured reserve list hours before the game, Jonathan Marchessault took a pass from Nate Schmidt and hit the upper left corner of the goal with a shot Crawford never saw, making it 4-1 with 9:40 left in the game.
Kane finished the scoring with 1:05 left, extending his point streak to six games, the longest this season by a Blackhawks player.
Crawford stopped 29 of 33 shots on goal.
