Game 1 between the Avalanche and Golden Knights saw eight goals — seven by one team — and a feisty end to the game which resulted in a suspension. Colorado trounced Robin Lehner and Vegas 7-1 on Sunday, and Ryan Reaves was suspended two games for his actions during a scrum with Ryan Graves in the third period.
For the Golden Knights, Game 2 is just a matter of resetting ad going again, hoping to head back home with a split.
“We looked at it and what didn’t work for us, and there were a lot of things that didn’t work for us,” said Vegas head coach Peter DeBoer. “As a group, we didn’t do enough things well enough for long enough in order to deserve to win. It’s pretty easy to recognize that. We got what we deserved. I know we’ll bounce back.”
The Avalanche know they won’t win this series with 7-1 scores every game. Vegas was right there with them in the Presidents’ Trophy race during the regular season and there’s a long way to go before this series is over.
“It’s a race to four [victories],” said Avs head coach Jared Bednar. “That’s one, and it’s great, and we loved the way our team played and now our mission is to follow that up with a very similar game to the one we played.”
