On Tuesday, the Montreal Canadiens outperformed the Vegas Golden Knights 4-1, taking a 3-2 lead in their series. They’re in the Stanley Cup Semifinals and one more win for Montreal would mean a trip to the finals against either Tampa Bay or the New York Islanders.
Carey Price managed to stop 26 out of the 27 shots he faced last night. Jesper Kotkaniemi from the Canadiens scored a rebound halfway through the first period on Marc Andre Fleury. Eric Staal and Cole Caufield both scored in the second period to make it a 3-0 game off of power-play chances. Nick Suzuki was finally able to silence the crowd of 17,969 after scoring an empty-netter in the final seconds of the game.
The only goal scorer for the Vegas Golden Knights was former Habs winger Max Pacioretty who scored 4 minutes into the third period. Fleury got a warm welcome to the ice after his Game 3 mistake cost him the starting position in Game 4. However, the Canadiens were able to quickly take that energy away.
