Mark Stone (1G, 1A) and Max Pacioretty (1G, 1A) each chipped in two points but the Vegas Golden Knights dropped a 4-3 decision to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
Stone got Vegas on the board with a power-play goal early in the first period before Reilly Smith followed up with a goal of his own to put the home team up 2-0 in the first 10 minutes. The Bruins fought back with goals from David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand to send the teams into the intermission level at 2-2. Early second-period strikes from Marchand and Torey Krug put Boston ahead by two in the middle frame. Max Pacioretty buried his first goal of the campaign in the dying stages of the third, but the Bruins held on for the 4-3 win.
After Vegas and Boston split the first period, the first five minutes of the second period were crucial to both teams. The Bruins took charge with quick goals and those tallies gave them all they needed to secure the win.
Mark Stone: Stone added to his team lead in scoring (6 points) with his two-point night.
Max Pacioretty: Pacioretty collected his first goal of the season to go along with an assist.
Brad Marchand: Marchand was a spark for the Bruins as he notched three points (2G, 1A)
David Pastrnak: Pastrnak got Boston going with his team's first goal of the night en route to a three-point showing (1G, 2A)
The Golden Knights hit the road for a quick trip to face the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night at Gila River Arena. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. PT on AT&T SportsNet and FOX Sports Radio 98.9/1340.
