Golden Knights Tame the Wild in 4-0 Shutout

Vegas Golden Knights @ Minnesota Wild

Game Recap:

The Minnesota Wild were hoping to even up the series as they face the Vegas Golden Knights in game 4 of this first round matchup. Unfortunately for the Wild, Nic Roy got the scoring started for the Golden Knights at the 10:37 mark. Roy made a great defensive play in his own zone before going down the other way and wristed a shot the would beat goalie Cam Talbot for the early 1-0 lead. That score would stand going into period two.

Alex Tuch was able to help expand Vegas’ lead in the second period as he was able to split the defense to score his third goal of the playoffs. Moments later, Golden Knights captain Mark Stone would get in on the action as he would score short handed on a breakaway to give Vegas a 3-0 lead. That would be all the scoring in the middle period.

The Golden Knights played a great defensive game all night long and was able to keep the Wild from scoring despite putting up 35 shots in this game. Nic Roy would score again, this time it would be an empty net goal to seal the victory. Marc Andre Fleury was fantastic again for the Golden Knights to earn the shutout. On Monday night, the Golden Knights have a chance to put this series away in game five.
