Ivan Barbashev scores twice as Knights top Jets

Ivan Barbashev

Ivan Barbashev scored twice in the third period and Logan Thompson made 39 saves to lead the visiting Vegas Golden Knights to a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Pavel Dorofeyev and Jack Eichel also scored goals and William Karlsson had two assists for Vegas (40-25-8, 88 points) which extended its points streak to five games (4-0-1) while completing its second straight regular-season series sweep of the Jets with a victory.

Thompson won his fourth consecutive start, allowing just one goal in each game.

Sean Monahan scored for Winnipeg (44-23-6, 94 points) which lost its fifth straight game (0-4-1). Connor Hellebuyck stopped 23 of 25 shots.

Vegas took a 1-0 lead at the 15:56 mark of the opening period when Dorofeyev fired a wrist shot from near the left faceoff dot past a screen and into the top far right corner of the net for his 12th goal of the season.

Winnipeg tied it early in the second period when Monahan deflected a Nikolaj Ehlers shot from the right point over Thompson’s right shoulder for Monahan’s 23rd goal and 10th since joining the Jets in a Feb. 2 trade from the Montreal Canadiens.

The Jets missed an excellent chance to take the lead midway through the third period when Ehlers, alone in the right circle, fired a shot at an open right side of the goal into the side of the net.

Barbashev then put Vegas back in front with 5:29 to go when he snapped a backhand shot over Hellebuyck’s right shoulder and into the top left corner of the net.

Winnipeg pulled Hellebuyck for an extra attacker with 2:05 remaining and Barbashev sealed the win with an empty-netter, his 18th goal of the season, with 1:45 to go.

Eichel then added another empty-netter with 34 seconds left to finish the scoring.
