Vegas 3 Minnesota 2
Vegas hosted the Minnesota Wild, a team with an unbeaten record at the T-Mobile Arena. In three previous games in Las Vegas, the Wild were 3-0.
The opening period was a back and forth contest but turned quickly in favor of the Wild with about four minutes remaining. Vegas was called for three late penalties resulting in a power-play goal for Minnesota. After 20 minutes, the Golden Knights trailed 1-0.
Chandler Stephenson would continue to impress his new teammates tying up the game with his 6th goal of the season, and his 3rd as a Golden Knight. Shea Theodore would give Vegas the lead on a nice rush with 10 seconds left in the 2nd period.
Tomas Nosek added to Vegas’ lead with his 5th goal of the season stretching his team’s lead to 3-1. Minnesota would get one with their goalie pulled but couldn’t find the equalizer in the dying seconds.
Vegas’ record improves to 19-13-5 with 43 points. The team will take a quick divisional road trip to play Vancouver and San Jose. They’ll face off against the Canucks on Thursday night. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
