3. Right Wing Riders Riley Smith – Notched two assists, including one on the penalty kick, in his third two-point game of the season. He has three short term points. Twenty-six teams have two short-term goals or less.

2. Center Knights Nicholas Roy – He earned a goal and an assist in his fourth two-point game of the season and fifth of his career. He put in a superb display as left winger Jonathan Marchesault netted the Knights’ first goal.

1. Max Pasuritti, left winger, has scored twice to expand his points streak to four games since returning from a broken foot on November 24. This was his 56th multiplayer career. Only Alex Ovechkin (122), Stephen Stamkos (80), Sidney Crosby (66) and Joe Pavelsky (57) have had more since Pasurietti entered the NHL in the 2008-09 season.

Pacioretty’s power-play goal.

The cavalry shooters first came right after he missed an opportunity shot by the right winger Evgeny Dadonov. Defenseman Shea Theodore recovered the disc and returned it to Pacioretty above the right circle. Pasurietti took two steps forward and beat goalkeeper Karel Vemelka with a shot from his wrist to achieve his second goal in playing the force in two matches.

This was the Knights’ third force-playing goal in the previous two games. They scored five goals in power play in their first 21 games.

Key stats

All four front lines and three defensive pairs were on the ice for a five-on-five goal against wolves. The team also earned one goal each from strong play and a penalty shootout.

The six players who participated in the two-point match are Pasuritti, Smith, Roy, Dadonov, Theodore and right winger Michael Amadeo, who scored his first goal with the team in his ninth game.

Eichel Update

Jack Eichel, who is skiing in North Carolina after artificial disc replacement surgery in November, was allowed to do everything but call, according to an ESPN outage report during Friday’s game.

The Star Center is expected to come to Las Vegas in about three weeks to continue his rehabilitation. General Manager Kelly McCremon, after trading with Eshel, said the timeline for returning to play was three to five months after the procedure.

Eichel was the first NHL player to undergo surgery to replace an artificial disc. It will not be the last. According to TSN, Tyler Johnson of the Chicago Center had the same operation. Choosing Eshel could pave the way for surgery to become more common for high-profile athletes.
