Despite trailing 2-0 late in the third period, the Vegas Golden Knights battled back to capture a 3-2 victory in overtime against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night at Staples Center.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
Dustin Brown and Blake Lizotte helped Los Angeles establish a 2-0 lead through 47 minutes. With 5:54 remaining in the third period, Curtis McKenzie was the beneficiary of a Los Angeles own goal to get the Golden Knights on the board. Just 54 seconds later, Jonathan Marchessault sprung Mark Stone on a breakaway where Stone made no mistake in tying the hockey game at 2-2. After 1:04 of overtime, Marchessault stormed into the Kings' zone and snapped a shot over the glove of Jonathan Quick to lift the Golden Knights to victory.
Jonathan Marchessault: Marchessault set up Stone for the game-tying goal before burying the game-winner himself just 6:04 elapsed time later.
Mark Stone: In his first game of the preseason, Stone was effective in all three zones as he posted one blocked shot, one takeaway and one goal.
Oscar Dansk : Dansk battled in goal for Vegas throughout the contest as he compiled 36 saves on 38 shots to help the Golden Knights get the win.
