The Vegas Golden Knights finally won a game on Thursday, but it came at a cost.
The team picked up a 5-3 win over the Florida Panthers, putting an end to a five-game losing streak that ultimately saw them dip to ninth in the Western Conference in terms of points percentage.
While the win was a huge relief, the Golden Knights got some bad news. Jack Eichel left the game in the second period after blocking a shot with his arm. On Friday, head coach Peter DeBoer said that Eichel’s injury is a “huge concern” and that he’s doubtful for Vegas’ game on Saturday.
