The Vegas Golden Knights closed out their three-game road trip with a dramatic 2-1 shootout win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night to improve to 7-4-0 overall.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
The teams traded chances in the first 20 minutes, but it was the Blackhawks with the advantage going into the first intermission thanks to a late tally from Kirby Dach. After a scoreless second period, Nick Holden evened the scoring with a goal in the final moments just after Vegas pulled its own goalie. During the 3-on-3 period of overtime, neither team found the back of the net sending the game into a shootout. After an even two rounds, Marc-Andre Fleury denied Alex DeBrincat to set up Shea Theodore for the shootout winner.
Marc-Andre Fleury: The Vegas goaltender stood strong once again, making 31 saves on 32 shots to give his team a chance in overtime.
Mark Stone: With just over a minute left in regulation, Stone set up Nick Holden for the game tying goal to extend his point streak to seven games.
Nick Holden: Holden's second goal of the season was his biggest as a Golden Knight as he leveled the score in the final two minutes.
Shea Theodore: Theodore's game winning shootout goal was the defenseman's second shootout conversion on the young season.
The Golden Knights will return to T-Mobile Arena for a Nevada Day matinee on Friday as they take on the Colorado Avalanche at 3:00 p.m. PT. Catch the action on AT&T SportsNet and FOX Sports Radio 98.9/1340.
