It was the finale of a four-game series for the Golden Knights and Coyotes. Marc-Andre Fleury got his third start in net looking to remain perfect on the season.
There wasn’t much action in the first period. VGK served up 10 shots but couldn’t get one passed Arizona goaltender Darcy Kuemper. Fleury stopped all four 1st period shots by the Coyotes.
The 2nd period was tight just like the opening 20 minutes. Both teams had power play opportunities but couldn’t convert. Fleury and Kuemper continued their strong play and held a scoreless tie through 40 minutes.
Like the first two periods, the goalies were unstoppable in the final 20 minutes. By their performances, both made it clear one goal would be the difference. William Karlsson gave Vegas a massive 1-0 lead with :42 seconds left in the game.
The Golden Knights win three of four against the Coyotes and improve their record to 5-1-0. Vegas heads back home for two games against the St. Louis Blues. The game is schedule for Tuesday night at 6P PT.
