The Vegas Golden Knights got to skate on their home ice for the first since November 29th in an afternoon matchup against the New York Rangers.
Vegas had many quality scoring chances from the start of the game but couldn’t seem to get one past Rangers goalie Alexandar Georgiev. New York scored two goals in a span of :14 seconds to take a 2-0 lead after one period of action.
The Rangers continued to shut down Vegas’ offense and scored more goals in the 2nd period. Vegas gave up a power play goal, followed up with an even-strengthen goal to make it 4-0 visitors.
The game got chippy in the 3rd period leading to a fight with William Carrier and NY’s Brendan Lemieux. Lemieux landed a questionable hit on Cody Glass which Vegas took exception with. The Rangers would add another taking a commanding 5-0 lead.
Vegas’ record drops to (15-12-5) and break their five-game point streak. The Golden Knights will try and get back on track Tuesday against the Chicago Blackhawks. Game time is scheduled for 7P.
