The Vegas Golden Knights (15-12-5) fell to the New York Rangers (15-11-3), 5-0, on Sunday evening at T-Mobile Arena in their return home from a three-game trip.
HOW IT WENT DOWN
The Rangers took charge midway through the first period when Artemi Panarin and Chris Kreider scored 14 seconds apart to give New York a 2-0 lead. The lead grew to 4-0 in the second period as Jacob Trouba and Jesper Fast potted a goal each. Vegas was unable to muster a comeback as the Rangers added another for the 5-0 win. Max Pacioretty (nine shots) and Shea Theodore (six shots) posed the biggest threats to the Ranger net, but Alexandar Georgiev made 38 save for the shutout.
Vegas is back in action Tuesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks at 7 p.m. at T-Mobile Arena. Catch the game on AT&T SportsNet, FOX Sports 98.9/1340 and Deportes Vegas 1460.
