“Max is a big part of our offense, our most exclusive goal scorer,” Marchessault said. “He’s been doing so well for so long. It’s great to have him back. You really feel his presence, not just aggressively but physically. He’s a big part of our group. He’s back. It’s good to do.”

Pacioretti has scored three goals and three assists in four games since returning after missing 17 games with a broken leg in the second game of the season.

Travis Boyd scored for Arizona and Karel Wejmelka made 25 saves.

The Golden Knights broke the game open by scoring four goals in less than eight minutes of the second period.

“We needed a win,” said Vegas coach Pete DeBoer. “You look at the standings and you lose a couple in a row and all of a sudden the teams get on you. This should give us some confidence. We haven’t scored so many goals in a while.”

Stephenson’s goal at the 2-on-1 break gave the Golden Knights a 3-1 lead at 7:17 of the second period, and Pacioretti scored his second at the breakaway 55 seconds later – coming out of the penalty box after 8 seconds. after. rough minor.

“We got a lot of pucks and got a lot to score out of that,” Marchessault said. “That’s what built our momentum. Overall, it was one of the good games of the year.”

Marchesault scored his 10th goal in the first period at 6:58, skating alone after Roy’s pass at the 2–1 break from the Coyotes’ defensive zone.

Boyd tied it in less than a minute before Pacioretti’s power play goal gave the Knights a 2-1 lead with 6:07 in the opening period.

“We want to win that special teams fight every night,” DeBoer said. “You guys (Pascioretti) like that they have the puck and a little bit of room on the stick… He’s the kind of guy who doesn’t need a lot of opportunity. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that when you’re with those guys.” Back in the lineup, our game gets better.

Arizona had won three of their last six games and won two of their first 17 since November 20.

“It’s disappointing,” said Coyotes coach Andre Tourigne. “It’s one thing to lose, but the way we did it is definitely a bit of a blow.”
