What went on during the 1st period?
The Vegas Golden Knights came out strong from the start . While they may have had a few slip ups every now and then, Alex Tuch early on buried the only goal in the period. Chandler Stephenson was the player who stood out most to me during the 1st. Stephenson while unable to find the back of the net had ample opportunities and was buzzing throughout the opening 20. Can Alex Tuch and the Vegas Golden Knights do better in the second?
What went on during the 2nd period?
For Minnesota, Marcus Foligno scored his 3rd goal in 2 games, and has been outstanding for the Wild. Before the Wild goal, Jonathan Marchessault went upstairs while being assisted by Alex Tuch for his second point of the night. Although that goal was fun and all, Minnesota still looked like the better team offensively and defensively even though the shots were fairly even. Can Vegas do better in the third period?
what went on in the third period?
For the third period, while the Wild poured it on with 20 shots on goal, it was all Vegas in the back of the net. It took Chandler Stephenson a few breakaway chances until he finally banked one in the net. Prior to Stephenson’s goal, Mark Stone had a breakaway himself that was assisted by Stephenson. With the Wild pulling their goalie for the extra attacker, William Karlsson would seal the victory by scoring on the empty net.
It was a fun night for sure at T-Mobile Arena, being in the Fortress witnessing the win. The Minnesota Wild cast-off Alex Tuch has been surging of late, finding himself right behind Max Pacioretty for team lead in goals after feasting on the Wild. Mark Stone continues to be terrific in just about every aspect of the ice and the Chandler Stephenson jackpot signing continues to pay dividends. For Minnesota its the first loss in their classy retro jersey and a little bit of a come back to earth after soaring to 6 straight wins prior to meeting Vegas.
The Minnesota Wild and the Vegas Golden Knights see each other again until April 1st. Let’s see what happens.Embed from Getty Images
