Marchessault's hat trick helps Golden Knights beat Devils

By  | 

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Jonathan Marchessault scored three straight goals in the third period to rally the Vegas Golden Knights over New Jersey 4-3 hours after the Devils fired coach John Hynes. Marchessault scored twice in the first 5:04 of the third to give the Golden Knights a 3-2 lead. He added a power-play goal midway through the period, and Vegas held on even after New Jersey’s Nico Hischier scored 20 seconds later. Hynes was fired after a 9-13-4 start that left the team with the NHL’s second worst record.
