The save of the game, perhaps the playoffs came with two minutes to play and Knights' forward Alex Tuch had a wide open net, but Caps goaltender Braden Holtby somehow got his goal stick on the shot to prevent the tying goal
Despite a valiant comeback the Buffalo Sabres one-game winning streak came to an end with a 5-4 overtime loss against the expansion Las Vegas Golden Knights in the final game of the Sabres' four-game western road trip. The Sabres scored the first goal of the game when a shot by Ryan O'Reilly bounced over the goaltender into the net, but Vegas scored four in a row to take a 4-1 lead.
The only team that the other 30 teams in the NHL can deal with right now is the new expansion Las Vegas Knights. Any trades or other agreements can only be made with the Knights thru Wednesday at 10 am. During that period the Knights can choose one player from the roster of each other team in the league to form the roster of the team that begins play this fall.
