    The Vegas Golden Knights walloped the Edmonton Oilers Thursday night in what was the first time Vegas earned a victory over the Oilers all season.And it looked like Vegas wanted the win badly.Ryan Carpenter kicked off the scoring with a rebound off a chance generated by Deryk Engelland. The Knights then scored twice in the second period to take the game completely away from the Oilers, with Jonathan Marchessault getting on the board and William Karlsson scoring number 30 on the year.Karlsson has now doubled his previous goal-scoring output from the past two seasons.Erik Haula capped off the Knights’ rout before Marc-Andre Fleury allowed his first goal of the night to Leon Draisaitl. Connor McDavid was held pointless and was sent to the box as well. A frustrating night for Edmonton and a great night for the Knights.Carpenter has earned a permanent spotCarpenter scored his fourth goal in six games and is beginning to earn a lot more playing time. He’s developed chemistry with his linemates and appears to be the goal scorer Pierre-Edouard Bellemare has needed Tyler Wong Jersey.His possession stats with the Bellemare Tomas Nosek combo aren’t bad, either. Carpenter with that combination of linemates has a 68 percent shot share, has yet to be scored on , has 66.67 percent high-danger chance share and owns a 62.5 percent Corsi.Compare that to the fourth line of William Carrier, Nosek and Bellemare, who have a 49.83 percent Corsi, 46.41 percent shot share, 54.55 percent goal share and 51.72 percent high danger chance share.Carpenter might be better suited to the fourth line and may help Nosek and Bellemare be more than just a great possession line in the long run.Cody Eakin continues to not see the iceEakin played just nine minutes against the Chicago Blackhawks. Against the Oilers, Eakin played 1022, including just 16 seconds on the penalty kill. He’s being slowly left out of the lineup, and it’s hard to blame Gerard Gallant. Eakin hasn’t scored since Jan. 5, which certainly isn good enough.It’s not like the Knights don’t have other options, either. At the same time as the Knights were beating the Oilers https://www.knightsstoreonline.com/Reilly_Smith_Jersey-31, the Chicago Wolves grabbed their own victory against the Cleveland Monsters. T.J. Tynan played a large part in that, adding three points in the contest. He does everything Eakin does but better.If a forward gets injured, don be surprised if Tynan gets called up to see how he performs with the third line. If he does well, the Knights may find it easier to move on from Eakin.Colin Miller is a fighter?Miller got in his first fight as a Golden Knight against Jujhar Khaira. Miller actually has more fights than one would expect, and he had at least one fight in five games with the Boston Bruins.
