The Vegas Golden Knights (10-4-1) were topped by the Colorado Avalanche (9-4-1), 3-2, on Saturday on an outdoor rink at Edgewood Resort in Lake Tahoe.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
Colorado opened the scoring in the first period as Samuel Girard gave the Avalanche a 1-0 lead. After the first period, sunlight was a factor in the condition of the ice forcing a delay for the second period. The game resumed at 9 p.m. and Alec Martinez leveled the score at 1-1 with his first goal of the year. Nathan MacKinnon put Colorado ahead, 2-1, as the teams took the ice for the third period. Devon Toews added to the Avalanche lead, but a spinning goal from Alex Tuch brough the Golden Knights to within one. Vegas mounted a comeback bid late, but Colorado held on for the 3-2 victory.
The Golden Knights and Avalanche will close their four-game set Monday at 7 p.m. at Ball Arena. Catch the game on AT&T SportsNet and FOX Sports Las Vegas 98.9/1340.
