Posted on

The Golden Knights couldn’t pick up an extra win during their bye week.

Coach Bruce Cassidy, center Chandler Stephenson and goaltender Logan Thompson came up short in the NHL All-Star Game on Saturday along with the rest of the Pacific Division, losing 6-4 to the Central in the semifinals at Sunrise, Florida.

Thompson played the first half and stopped four of the seven shots he faced. He was relieved by goaltender Stuart Skinner, who also was 4-for-7. Stephenson had one shot on goal and a breakaway opportunity on goaltender Connor Hellebuyck that he missed.

St. Louis’ Vladimir Tarasenko had four points for the Central, which was led by former Knights coach Pete DeBoer. Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson had two goals for the Pacific.
