The team at Adam S. Kutner & Associates gave away two tickets and a Zamboni ride to last night’s Vegas Golden Knights game against the Anaheim Ducks.
There was a buzz before last night’s game at the T-Mobile Arena. The Vegas Golden Knights hosted the first-place and divisional foe Anaheim Ducks. It was Saturday night in Las Vegas, and the Golden Knights were ready to put on a show.
It was tight and scoreless for most of the first period but Vegas was the better team to start the game. The Ducks were constantly under pressure by the Golden Knights heavy forecheck. Anaheim goaltender John Gibson stopped a flurry of Vegas shots, but he couldn’t stop them all. With :14 seconds remaining in the period, William Karlsson slipped a Power-Play goal past Gibson. Karlsson’s second of the year put the Golden Knights in the lead 1-0.
“The fourth line was great. The team was real good, but the fourth line was outstanding. Every time they were on the ice they had scoring chances and big hits. They really set the tone for our team.” – Coach Gerard Gallant
In the second period, the Golden Knights feverishly continued to pressure Anaheim. Midway through the period, fourth line bruiser Ryan Reaves was rewarded for his hard work. Vegas defenseman Nick Holden took a dangerous shot from the point, and Reaves buried the rebound for his first goal of the season.
“It was a good shot. Big rebound kind of skirted out there. Unfortunately, I wasn’t out there with my linemates. But it was just a good rebound.” – Ryan Reaves
Anaheim made the game interesting after scoring their first goal 1:24 into the third period. The game tightened up and each team had chances but both goaltenders were on their game. Vegas sealed the game with an empty netter by star forward Jonathan Marchessault.
“We played a good team tonight. We dominated. We didn’t give them much. I think they had three shots in the first, and three or something in the second. It was pretty quiet on my end, but the guys had a great effort for me.” – Marc Andre Fleury
Vegas’ next game will be Wednesday against Vancouver. The Golden Knights play the young Canucks who are off to a surprising (5-3) start. The Pacific divisional game begins 7 pm on Wednesday night.
