GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — James Neal’s first season with a brand new team is off to a dream start, for both Neal and the Vegas Golden Knights.
Neal’s goal at 3:46 of overtime Saturday night gave the expansion Golden Knights their second win in two games, 2-1 over the Arizona Coyotes.
Neal, who scored twice in the Golden Knights’ first regular-season game Friday at Dallas, completed a comeback that saw Vegas tie the score at 1 with 1:12 to play in regulation. Anti Raanta, in his first game as the new No. 1 goaltender in Arizona, stopped 42 shots.
