The Golden Knights hosted old divisional rival Arizona Coyotes for their second to last preseason game before their season opener on October 12th.
Robin Lehner started in net for Vegas and held a scoreless tie for most of the opening period. With 1:09 remaining, Arizona opened the scoring with a lucky puck bounce over Lehner’s shoulder. Arizona held a 1-0 lead after the opening twenty minutes.
The Coyotes doubled their edge early in the second period but William Karlsson cut the lead in half with his third goal of the preseason. Arizona would regain their two goal lead in the final period, putting the game out of reach for Vegas.
The Golden Knights preseason record drops to (3-3) with their 3-1 defeat to the Coyotes. Vegas prepares for the final preseason game on Saturday night in San Jose. Puck drop is scheduled for 5PM.
