What went on in the 1st period?

The Vegas Golden Knights did great in the first period thanks to their gold helmets. All joking aside, the Golden Knights would have done even better if it wasn’t for Cam Talbot. Cam Talbot almost gave up 2 goals, 1 by Cody Glass and another by Jonathan Marchessault but turned aside all 12 shots he faced in the period. Let’s see what happens in the 2nd period.

For the Minnesota Wild, while they got shots in on Marc-Andre Fleury they seemed to keep losing the puck. The only player who really stood out in the period was the goalie Cam Talbot. Although the Golden Knights almost struck for a couple of goals, he did stand tall when it mattered to keep the Wild moving. Let’s see if the Wild can pick themselves up in the 2nd period.

What went on in the 2nd period?

The Golden Knights scored 2 goals. Cody Glass scored half-way through the second period. Soon after, Max Pacioretty kept his team lead in goals with his 9th of the season. The 2nd half of the period, the Golden Knights seemed to get a little too full of themselves, and let in 4 goals. Is it the curse of the golden helmets or could the Golden Knights do better in the last 20 minutes?

The Minnesota Wild really turned up the heat at the midway point and it seemed as if they were ready to roll on the 7th straight victory. Jordan Greenway, Nick Bonino and Marcus Foligno all scored goals. The Wild made the Golden Knights’ offense and defense look horrendous. Can Minnesota keep their goal streak going in the 3rd?

What went on in the 3rd period?

Nothing much went on in the early parts of the 3rd and our defense wasn’t looking too hot. While Fleury appeared human for one of the very rare occurrences so far this season, the Golden Knights as a whole didn’t look too good until Nicolas Hague sent home a rocket of a slap shot from the point to get them within 1. From there on out it felt like a matter of time before the Golden Knights would strike again and tie the game . It would take us until less than a minute to go and after extended time of pressure in the Wild’s zone a break down in front by Zach Parise allowed a cross ice flutter pass to hit Mark Stone who chipped it immediately to Alex Tuch in front for the tying dagger.

What went on in overtime

3 on 3 hockey should always full of breakaways, and that’s exactly what happened. Mark Stone had the breakaway and stutter stepped a potential trip, but before he completely lost his groove, he passed it to Max Pacioretty at the absolute last minute of a chance who buried it for the winner.

In conclusion

Mark Stone and the Vegas Golden Knights ended the night on a phenomenal note. Stone had a 5 assist game and its another comeback win for the house with the Vegas Golden Knights winning 5-4.
