Videos- The Vegas Golden Knights Advance To The Semi-Finals Of The Stanley Cup Playoffs

via Sportsnet,

The Vegas Golden Knights have defeated the Colorado Avalanche, 6-3, winning their best-of-seven series in six games.

With the victory, the Golden Knights have advanced to the third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, where they will play the Montreal Canadiens.

In a game that saw leads established and erased four times heading into the third period, Vegas and Colorado traded scoring punches for the first 40 minutes.

Devon Toews opened the scoring just 23 seconds into the game, capitalizing on a cross-ice feed from Nathan MacKinnon. The Golden Knights notched the next two goals, courtesy Nick Holden and William Karlsson.

The Golden Knights, who were 5-0 when leading after 40 minutes prior to Thursday’s game, held a one-goal lead heading into the third thanks to Alex Pietrangelo’s first goal of the playoffs.

In the final frame, a goal by William Carrier at 8:14 gave Vegas a two-goal insurance marker it wouldn’t relinquish. Max Pacioretty added an empty-netter to close out the Golden Knights’ victory.

Below find the highlights and handshakes.
