The Vegas Golden Knights (19-13-5) collected a 3-2 victory against the Minnesota Wild (16-14-5) on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
After Mats Zuccarello gave the Wild a 1-0 lead late in the first period, the Golden Knights battled back and took a 2-1 lead in the middle frame. Chandler Stephenson scored to level the score before Shea Theodore's goal in the dying seconds sent Vegas into the second intermission with the one-goal edge. Tomas Nosek increased the home team's lead to 3-1 near the midway mark of the third and, despite a late goal from Zach Parise, the Golden Knights came away with the 3-2 win.
When it looked like Vegas and Minnesota would head into the third period level at one, Theodore scored the late go-ahead goal to give the Golden Knights the momentum. Vegas controlled the pace in the final frame and held the lead through the final horn.
Mark Stone: Stone recorded two assists in the victory to hit 20 helpers on the year.
Chandler Stephenson: Stephenson's third goal as a Golden Knight got the team on the board.
Tomas Nosek: Nosek's goal came just after a successful penalty kill in the third period.
Vegas hits the road a trip to Vancouver and San Jose. The trip begins Thursday night with a game against the Canucks at 7 p.m. at Rogers Arena on AT&T SportsNet and FOX Sports 98.9/1340.
