All Marc-Andrè Fleury does is record shutouts for the Golden Knights. Wouldn’t you think the team should’ve paid him back by not relying on him too much? Wrong.

What went on during the 1st period?
That period, it was all Minnesota Wild. They looked great offensively and defensively. They also looked solid on their penalty kill. Although the Wild out scored the Vegas Golden Knights 1-0, Marc-André Fleury looked amazing out there and kept the game close. If the Golden Knights want to do better throughout the game though, they need to be better offensively, defensive and not to just on Fleury to save the day.
What went on during the 2nd period?
The Vegas Golden Knights did a little bit better during the period, but just couldn’t get the puck in the net. Kaapo Kahkonen made some amazing save to help his team remain in a one goal lead.
What went on during the 3rd period?
The Golden Knights just couldn’t get the puck in the net all game long. Both teams really had trouble scoring even with great chances throughout. It was not until just seconds left in the game that another goal would be scored, but it wasn’t from the Knights. It was awarded to the Jonas Brodin which sealed the game effectively for the Wild. Although this was Kaapo Kahkonen first appearance against the Knights, Kaapo stood on his head all game.
The Minnesota Wild just hands down looked like the better team from the first moment Kevin Fiala scored the first goal and for the majority of the game. Overall it was a close game for sure and even though the Golden Knights seemed like they could make a run at tying it up and causing the usual late game heroics it just didn’t happen. Let’s see what happens tomorrow when the Golden Knights play the Wild one more time before heading to St. Louis.
