Malcolm Subban made 35 saves for the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night at Scotiabank Arena, but the Toronto Maple Leafs skated away with a 2-1 victory in overtime.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
Subban and Frederik Andersen stood tall through the first 40 minutes of the game as neither allowed a goal in two periods of play. In the third period, Max Pacioretty potted his fourth goal of the season to give the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead. Auston Matthews answered for Toronto and the teams headed into overtime level at 1-1. Mitchell Marner set up John Tavares for the game-winning goal late in overtime to give Toronto the 2-1 triumph.
The Maple Leafs were whistled for too many men on the ice in the final two minutes of the game. Vegas didn't convert before the final horn and Toronto finished the penalty kill early in overtime. They used the momentum from that kill to connect on the game-winner in OT.
Malcolm Subban: Subban stood on his head in the Vegas net with 35 saves on 37 shots.
Max Pacioretty: Pacioretty opened the scoring in the third period and gave Vegas the lead early in the final frame.
Frederik Andersen: Andersen's 37 saves kept the Golden Knights from connecting on the would-be game-winning goal.
The Golden Knights move on to the third stop of their road trip as they take on the Washington Capitals on Saturday night at 4 p.m. PT at Capital One Arena.
