(Las Vegas, NV) — Vegas forward Max Pacioretty scored two minutes into overtime to lift the Golden Knights to a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild last night in Las Vegas. Vegas captain Mark Stone set up the winner with his fifth helper of the night to complete the rally and sink the Wild. Minnesota exploded for four second period goals including a pair for Marcus Foligno to build a 4-2 lead but the Knights answered with the next three to cinch the victory. The loss ended the Wild six game winning streak and keeps them two points behind the Golden Knights who currently hold down first-place in the West Division. The two teams will rematch on Wednesday at T-Mobile Arena at 9 P-M.
