Maxime Lagace's mom could hardly stand the tension of her son's first NHL win.
Manon Dallaire, the mother of the Vegas Golden Knights goalie, who picked up his first League victory with 24 saves in Vegas' 5-4 victory against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, first showed her nerves in the waning seconds before releasing her jubilation about Lagace's accomplishment.
The Golden Knights spotted Lagace a 5-2 lead, but with Vegas leading by a goal in the waning seconds and the Senators pressing on offense, the tension was almost too much to bear for Mrs. Lagace. Fortunately for her, and Vegas, Lagace came through which created the mother of all sighs of relief.
With pride and jubilation about the result her son had no doubt dreamed of his whole life, she let out a scream and an emphatic applause as the clock hit zeroes.
Lagace became the fourth Golden Knights goalie to record a win this season. The goalie grew up in the St. Augustin-de-Desmaures, Quebec, a city adjacent to Quebec City that is roughly 280 miles from Kanata, Ontario, which had to make the site of his first NHL win pretty sweet too.
