LAS VEGAS (AP) — William Carrier scored his third goal in two games and the Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Wednesday night.
Mark Stone, William Karlsson and Jack Eichel also scored for the Golden Knights. Logan Thompson stopped 38 shots to earn his 11th win, most in the NHL.
Jake Sanderson got his first career goal for Ottawa, and Cam Talbot made 32 saves.
Carrier scored his seventh of the season — his career high is nine — when he skated through the neutral zone, dangled his way past two Senators in the offensive zone and fired an off-balance wrist shot far side to give Vegas a 2-1 lead at 16:23 of the second period.
Karlsson made it 3-1 when he lasered a backhand with his back to Talbot off a spin move from the left dot for his fifth of the season at 2:39 of the third.
