If at first you don’t succeed try again. If at second you don’t succeed, try again by batting in the puck from midair.
Jonathan Marchessault struck on his third chance with a highlight-reel, backhand goal from midair in the Vegas Golden Knights’ win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.
With the scored tied, and Vegas on the power play, Marchessault fanned on his first chance, then his second shot was tipped in the air by Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson.
But Marchessault kept his eye on the puck and bunted home the rebound for fourth goal of the season and his third in five games.
It broke the ice and keyed the Golden Knights’ 3-1 win, their fourth win in five games.
