A miserable opening period for the Golden Knights in which they gave up two goals, were outshot 19-8, and lost the Corsi battle 26-12. The Wild added the game’s third goal but a power play tip-in from Erik Haula cut the lead back to two. Minnesota scored again on the power play sending the game to the 3rd at 4-1. Vegas never quite got going as the Wild become the third team to beat the Golden Knights twice.
Upcoming stories from the Vegas Golden Knights at Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center.
