It was a back-and-forth first period between the hometown Golden Knights and the visiting St. Louis Blues.
William Carrier broke open the game 1-0 by jumping on a giveaway by St. Louis defenseman Joel Edmundson. Carrier scored his third goal and his fourth point of the season.
“Will works hard every game, he has great chances every game and it’s good to see the kid work hard and compete, and get a big goal tonight. But I didn’t see the other part.” – Gerard Gallant, VGK Head Coach
Unfortunately, the Golden Knights lead didn’t stand for long as Blues top center Ryan O’Reilly popped one in off of Marc-Andre Fleury’s stick. It was a fluky play but resulted in a 1-1 tie after twenty minutes of action.
The second period wasn’t a positive one for the hometown Knights. O’Reilly scored his second of the game seven minutes in to take a 2-1 St. Louis lead. The Blues continued to pressure Vegas defense and added two more in the period. After 40 minutes of play, the Golden Knights trailed 4-1.
While Vegas tried to claw its way back in the game, St. Louis did a good job possessing and protecting the puck. The Golden Knights never could capitalize on quality chances and Blues goaltender Jake Allen stooped 29 of 30 shots. Vegas went on to lose the game 4-1.
Vegas drops their record to (8-11-1), and travel to take on Edmonton on Sunday evening. The Oilers are fourth in the Pacific Division with 19 points. Vegas hopes to bounce back and slow down Edmonton superstar Connor McDavid. The game begins at 5P.
