The Golden Knights’ Pavel Dorofeyev opened the scoring with his 11th goal of the season, giving the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead.

Dorofeyev found a walkway to the net when Nathan Walker fell on the ice as he went to defend him in the corner. As Mantha collected the puck at the hash marks along the far boards, Scott Perunovich vacated the slot to meet him.

The lead would stand up for the remainder of period one, period two, and most of period three.

The Blues almost scored early in the final frame, but Logan Thompson made a tremendous save on Kevin Hayes to keep the lead intact. Brandon Saad eventually did score with 5:07 remaining to tie things up at 1-1, and the two sides headed to overtime in search of an extra point.

Early on in overtime, Pavel Buchnevich was awarded a penalty shot, and Thompson stood tall to make a critical stop, which kept the game going. He finished the evening with 31 saves and had a fantastic performance for the Golden Knights.

Shortly after Thompson’s key stop in overtime, the Golden Knights got the puck into the Blues zone, and Jonathan Marchessault picked up a puck freed by William Karlsson along the boards and put it off the post and in to give the team another much-needed win.

Happy for Logan,Cassidy said. “He battled hard in there, and he deserved it.”

I think the word is clutch,Karlsson said. “That’s what we need from goalies this time of year.
