Knights stopped in Vegas by Edmonton

The Vegas Golden Knights fell short to the Edmonton Oilers, 3-2, Saturday, Nov. 27 inside of T-Mobile Arena.


The loss marks the ninth loss on the season bringing the Vegas record to 12-9 while Edmonton improves to 15-5 on the season.


The win keeps the Oilers near the top of the Pacific Division in a close battle with the Calgary Flames while VGK is still trying to find their footing on a consistent basis for this season sitting at a 12-9 record.


The next game for the Golden Knights will be on the road at the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. PST and can be seen on AT&T Sportsnet.


What started out as a good defensive battle between these two teams quickly went south for Vegas toward the end of the first period when center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins broke the scoreless tie with 2:10 remaining in the period.


Just when the Knights thought they would escape only being down 1-0 at the intermission, left-wing Zach Hyman added a second goal to the board for the Oilers with 16 seconds left in the first period to secure a 2-0 lead for Edmonton heading into the second period.


It was more of the Oilers in the second period as right-wing Jesse Puljujarvi scored his seventh goal of the season to extend the Edmonton lead out to 3-0.


A sold out T-Mobile Arena would eventually get to see the home team score as center Chandler Stephenson put home his eighth goal of the season with 9:10 left in the period to make it a 3-1 game heading into the third period.


The game got even more interesting in the third period when right-wing Reilly Smith scored with 15:56 left in the game to make the score 3-2 and give the Vegas crowd some hope.


The Knights showed incredible fight the remainder of the period and saw some golden chances to tie the game up at three but it ultimately wasn’t enough as Edmonton escaped Sin City with the 3-2 victory.
