The Vegas Golden Knights (16-13-5) were topped by the St. Louis Blues (19-8-3), 4-2, on Thursday night at Enterprise Center.

HOW IT WENT DOWN
After Mackenzie MacEachern gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead, Max Pacioretty converted his own rebound to tie the game. William Carrier scored late in the first period to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead heading into the second period, but an early goal from Oskar Sundqvist tied the score at 2-2. Jaden Schwartz and Robert Thomas scored less than one minute apart to give the Blues a 4-2 lead which they carried through the final horn.

TURNING POINT
Schwartz and Thomas scored just 39 seconds apart to turn a 2-2 score into a 4-2 edge for the home team. That jolt was enough to carry St. Louis to the win on home ice.

TOP PERFORMERS
Max Pacioretty: Pacioretty scored his 12th goal of the season in his 100th game as a Golden Knight.
