Marchessault scores 19 seconds in as Golden Knights beat Coyotes
Hill is 4-0 and has given up seven goals since returning from a lower-body injury suffered Dec. 17. He has won seven of his last eight starts and the other was an overtime loss. He had 19 wins in 49 games with the Coyotes from 2018-21.
Keller beat Hill on the blocker side on a breakaway at 3:40 of the third period to pull the Coyotes within 3-2.
Each team scored on its first shot, although the Coyotes trailed 2-0 by the time they got a shot off. Marchessault scored from the right circle after Nicolas Roy won a puck battle along the side boards and fed Ivan Barbashev, whose cross-ice pass found Marchessault.
Hague made it 2-0 at 1:17 of the first period when his wrist shot from between the circles bounced off a Coyotes defender and floated over Ingram’s glove.
Zucker scored on the Coyotes’ first shot at 4:07 of the first, when tipped in Juuso Valimaki’s slapper from from the blue line. Stephenson made it 3-1 at 6:17 when he skated in alone on Ingram and scored from the left circle, springing free after a backhanded pass from Mark Stone at the blue line.
William Karlsson appeared to give the Golden Knights a 4-1 lead at 12:20 of the first period, but a review determined that the puck was batted in with a glove before getting past Ingram. Vejmelka replaced Ingram during the review.
Ingram, who shut out Vegas in the teams' only previous meeting this season, made three saves.
Golden Knights: Host Minnesota on Monday.
Coyotes: At Nashville on Saturday.
