Jonathan Quick earned his first shutout as a Vegas Golden Knight on Saturday and helped his team secure a rare season sweep over the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Vegas Golden Knights beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-0. Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith, Paul Cotter, and Brett Howden scored for the Knights and Jonathan Quick made 33 saves against the Hurricanes for the shutout.
After the game, head coach Bruce Cassidy, Nic Hague, and Jonathan Marchessault all made comments on the win heading into Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Blues.
“That was pretty good,” Cassidy said. “You have your hands full here and it’s a team that plays fast and everything goes to the net. I thought getting the lead was important and you need to take advantage of the chances that you get.”
He was especially proud of his goaltender, who earned his first shutout with his brand new team and thinks it will help his confidence.
“I love what he has brought so far. He controls rebounds well and that makes it easier on the team as well.”
Jonathan Marchessault was asked what he thought of the complete game his team played tonight to get the win.
“I thought we were pretty good,” he said. “There was a lot of positive today. It’s a tough road trip and two out of three wins is good for our group. We need to be ready to go out tomorrow and do the same thing.”
Nic Hague, who has been steady on the blue line, was pleased with the win and said his team performed really well.
“I think we did a lot of things well,” Hague said. “We battled through it and we found a way to get it done.”
Jiri Patera will get his first NHL start Sunday in St. Louis in the second of a back-to-back. Patera was recalled from Henderson due to an injury to Adin Hill.
