The Golden Knights established a commanding lead, scoring twice in the first period and adding two more goals in the second. This onslaught forced the Florida Panthers to replace their goalie, Sergei Bobrovsky, as they suffered a crushing 7-2 defeat, putting Vegas ahead 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Final.

The goal-scoring spree began with Jonathan Marchessault’s power-play goal in the first period, followed by Alec Martinez doubling the lead. Early in the second period, Nicolas Roy and Brett Howden extended the lead to 4-0, leading to Bobrovsky’s replacement. Alex Lyon stepped in but couldn’t prevent goals from Marchessault, Michael Amadio, and Howden in the third period. Lyon allowed three goals on just 15 shots, leaving head coach Paul Maurice with uncertainties regarding his goaltending options.

Although Florida managed to score a couple of goals in the third period through Anton Lundell and Matthew Tkachuk, it was a small consolation amidst the overwhelming offensive onslaught from the Golden Knights. Austin Nivison of our team points out that Vegas has already seen contributions from nine different scorers in this series, setting a new record for the most scorers through the first two games of a Stanley Cup Final. The Panthers are struggling to contain the Golden Knights’ depth and offensive firepower.

Nivison highlights, “The Golden Knights’ depth has been their advantage throughout the playoffs, and it has continued to shine in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final. All four lines have been effective in generating offense against the Panthers. In this series, Vegas has fielded 18 skaters, with 15 of them registering a point. This follows every player on their team recording a point against the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference Final.”
