The Vegas Golden Knights made a stunning comeback in the final moments of the third period, finally winning 3-2 over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday at the T-Mobile Arena.
Meanwhile, the Nevada team cut the difference to 2-1 in the second-round series after missing the first two meetings in Denver.
This is Jared Bednar’s team’s first setback since the start of the playoffs.
While the mark was 2-2, with less than 5 minutes remaining in the match, Max Pasuritti sowed hysteria in the runway by redirecting a point throw, while simultaneously cheating the vigil of goalkeeper Philipp Grobauer.
Jonathan Marchesault had equalized 45 seconds ago. Quebec was lucky to shoot from a narrow angle behind the opposite net. The puck bounced off the goalkeeper’s avalanche skate before entering the net.
Striker William Carlson opened the scoring for the Knights in the second half with a superb maneuvering with his skate.
For his part, goalkeeper Marc-Andre Fleury miraculously saved in the last seconds of the match to prevent the overtime stoppage.
Veteran veterans Karl Soderbergh and Mikko Rantanen have found the back of the net in a lost cause.
The Golden Knights will have the opportunity to tie in the series on Sunday in Vegas.
