The Vegas Golden Knights returned to T-Mobile Arena on Friday and got right back in the win column against the Colorado Avalanche. The Knights took Game 3 of their second round series, 3-2, as a noticeably more aggressive offense tested the limits of the Avs’ defense and netminder Philipp Grubauer.
Despite Colorado still leading the series 2-1, it’s a massive victory for Vegas, which avoids the brink of elimination for at least one more night.
Only four teams in NHL history have advanced in the postseason after falling in a 3-0 series hole. The 2014 Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings were the last team to do so, knocking off the San Jose Sharks in Game 7.
That’s no longer the Knights’ concern as they move closer to evening the series.
