MONTREAL CANADIENS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (8-5-1 17 PTS) – OT

It was Halloween night and The Golden Knights would get more than just treats as two key players made it back from injury. Nate Schmidt returned to anchor the defense and Alex Tuch hit the ice ready to shoot.

After trailing 1-0 the Golden Knights came back to control the game. William karlsson ties the game with a goal in his third straight game. A fresh Tuch gave his team the lead on a laser past Montreal’s goaltender. Schmidt picked up his first assist on Tuch’s first goal.

The Canadiens scored the only 2nd period goal of the game. Vegas had multiple quality scoring chances but was stoned by strong goaltending by Keith Kincaid. After 40 minutes it was tied 2-2.

Vegas broke out in the 3rd period on goals by Cody Glass and Mark Stone. Max Pacioretty picked up his 500th career point with an assist on Stone’s 8th goal of the season. Former Vegas forward Tomas Tatar got Montreal within one, and moments later Montreal ties the game 4-4.

Golden Knights fell apart completely in overtime blowing multiple coverages and allowing a quick goal.

Vegas’ falls to 8-5-1 with their loss to Montreal. The Golden Knights will get back to action on Saturday night. Vegas welcomes in the Winnipeg Jets for their only visit to Las Vegas. Puck drop is scheduled for 7P.

  1. Vic

    Game was in the bag if there was one more clearing of the D zone on the PK late in the 3rd. Felt like the dreaded Not a Major 3rd period/OT. Have to give MTL credit for working hard and stealing another one. Nice night for Line 3 spoiled.

  2. Checking is not optional

    McNabb was awful in this one. Goals 2, 3, and 4 by Mtl were in part his fault. Not to even mention his several poor pinching choices that led to odd man chances for Mtl.

    Goal 2 he put into his own net frantically trying to clear it. Goal 3 was his failure twice to ice the puck late in the PK, including
    whiffing on a bouncing puck. on tying goal 4 he tried to cover his man in front, but he had his back to the puck and it dribbled in off his skate.

    Nate was not great either. He should have eaten the puck against the boards on that tying goal with the goalie pulled. Instead, he one handed the puck right to the trailing Mtl forward who centered it off McNabb’s skate.

    also, the coaching tactics were poor. when you have a 2 goal lead late in the 3rd, you have to go into a neutral zone trap, use your forwards to clog up the entries, and play cautious defensive hockey. You CANNOT keep sending in 2 forecheckers and a pinching dman, thus giving the opponent odd man rushes and scoring chances and momentum late in games.

    also, the Knights 3 guys on the ice to start OT,…. Patch, Stone and Theo, looked lost and confused as to who their man was, which is inexcusable. also, no center on the ice, so the Habs won the faceoff and possession is everything in 3 on 3.

    also, the same ref who shafted the Knights in game 7 in April was at it again in this one.
