Despite a late comeback effort, the Vegas Golden Knights (24-16-6) saw their four-game win streak snapped by the Pittsburgh Penguins (26-12-5), 4-3, on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
Pittsburgh jumped out to a two-goal advantage in the first period and extended their lead to 3-0 early in the second. Max Pacioretty put Vegas on the board with a strike from the high slot at the 7:11 mark of the middle frame. Later in the period, Paul Stastny tipped in a pass from Shea Theodore to get the Golden Knights within one heading into the final intermission. Two minutes into the third the Penguins would score again to bolster their lead and, despite a goal from Reilly Smith, Pittsburgh held on for the 4-3 final.
The Vegas homestand continues Thursday night as the Golden Knights take on the Los Angeles Kings at 7 p.m. Catch the action on AT&T SportsNet, FOX Sports 98.9/1340 and Deportes Vegas 1460.
