Starting Five - Vegas' Historic Comeback vs. St. Louis

Look back at the Golden Knights' thrilling 5-4 win against the Blues on Jan. 4

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights /

At the end of the first period between the Vegas Golden Knights and St. Louis Blues on Jan. 4 at T-Mobile Arena, the home team found itself in a 3-0 hole.

The Golden Knights had never overcome a three-goal deficit to win in their two-and-a-half years in the NHL, but that all changed in a 5-4 overtime win for Vegas. The win was just the beginning of an eventful day at The Fortress.

Two Goals in 2:22
Late in the second period, a pair of former Blues in Ryan Reaves and Paul Stastny scored 2:22 apart to cut the 3-0 deficit to 3-2.

Stephenson Ends It
Chandler Stephenson turned defense into offense quickly as he stripped the puck in the defensive zone, stormed down the ice and tucked a backhand shot through the legs of Jake Allen and in for the winner.
