What went on during the first period?
The first period was all Vegas Golden Knights. Jonathan Marchessault was on top his game for the second night in a row, but instead of trying to score a goal, he made a sliding pass to Shea Theodore who fired home his 4th goal of the season. Marc-André Fleury playing on back to back nights looked great in net once again. The score was 1-0 in favor of the Golden Knights.
What went on during the second period?
Neither team scored during that period, but Marc-André Fleury continued to be outstanding turning aside all 11 shots faced by the Blues. Brayden McNabb also looked outstanding, both defensively and by leading the outlet of rushes out of the zone and getting the puck past the blue line.
What went on during the third period?
Although Marc-André Fleury gave up a goal, he still did pretty amazing. It didn’t take long for the Golden Knights to increase the lead following Mark Stone’s 8th goal of the season. Although the Blues cut the lead off Sammy Blais’ 3rd of the season, the Golden knights would strike back for 3 unanswered goals. Max Pacioretty would restore the 2 goal lead less than 3 minuets after Blais’ goal. Mark Stone followed his lead after the midway point of the period to get his 2nd of the goal and then Alex Tuch sealed it with an empty netter. The horn went off and Vegas Golden Knights took swept the set with St. Louis taking home all 4 possible points.
It was a great game for Vegas, considering that they didn’t let it go to overtime. Overall the game was exciting from both ends but Vegas clamped down and took it home for the first time in regulation. Max Pacioretty continues to be an offensive juggernaut for the team racking up 24 points so far in the season and Alex Tuch tied him again for team lead with 13 goals. Now, hopefully Marc-André Fleury who was phenomenal in the back to back set gets the well deserved rest he needs next game that comes on Monday.Embed from Getty Images
