Las Vegas–Tonight the Vegas Golden Knights continued their 6-game road swing with their lone stop over at TD-Garden in Beantown as they took on the Boston Bruins.
In the early stages of the games middle period, the Bruins struck first when forward Riley Nash cashed in his initial attempt that hit the left post earlier in the sequence and put the puck past Maxime Lagace to give Boston the 1-0 lead at the 3:24 mark.
Later in the period, Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt was like a one-man army when he picked pocketed Jake DeBrusk in Boston’s end and fed the puck to an open Cody Eakin who ripped his shot past Rask to tie the game up at 1-1 with 10:26 left of the 2nd.

At 9:53 of the 3rd period, Boston untied the game up courtesy of Sean Kuraly who became opportunistic to cash in the loose puck behind Lagace to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead. This was Kuraly’s first goal of the season.
The 2-1 lead by the Boston Bruins would hold on as they got back to winning side of the game. For the Golden Knights, they have yet to earn a single point on this road trip as they have lost three straight to bring their inaugural season record at 8-4-0.
One thing that the Golden Knights did not have success on tonight was the power play where they went 0-3.
Lagace made 26 saves of 28 shots he faced and Tuukka Rask bested him with a .970 save percentage performance at stopping 28 of 29 shots.
