The regular season of the National Hockey League didn’t start until last Wednesday, but already, former Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty has started to rack up goals, and the Vegas Golden Knights are hoping he will keep up. the pace around the opposing net.
The American has hit the mark in each of his first three games of the campaign. After scoring over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday and Saturday, he did it again against the Arizona Coyotes in a 4-2 win on Monday. Pacioretty has also woken up his troop, which was two goals behind in the middle period. He grabbed his throw back to beat goaltender Darcy Kuemper from a tight angle. Subsequently, his teammates did the rest of the work with three consecutive goals in the last commitment.
The veteran is also one of the reasons the Knights are perfect after three games. With a +4 rating, he’s obviously had nothing to be ashamed of so far and, as of Tuesday, he was one of 12 hockey players on the Bettman Tour to claim three goals, one top.
At such a rate, the number 67 will obviously have no difficulty in surpassing his highest total of goals of his career, but, in a schedule of 56 games, it is allowed to doubt it. However, those fond of statistics will have noted that his best harvest dates from 2013-2014, when he had threaded the needle 39 times. He has six seasons of at least 30 goals to his credit.
Pacioretty and the Knights have to face the Coyotes in three more games these days. They will meet them Wednesday in Nevada before heading to Glendale for two dates, Friday and Sunday.
