LAS VEGAS — Max Pacioretty scored seven seconds into overtime, and the Vegas Golden Knights rallied for a 2-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday.
Pacioretty scored off a one-timer from the right circle from Mark Stone immediately following the face-off. It’s the second-fastest overtime goal in NHL history, and the third time it’s been done. The record is six seconds, which has been done five times, most recently by Toronto Maple Leafs forward William Nylander against the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan. 24, 2018.
William Karlsson tied it for Vegas with 1:22 left in the third period, a one-timer from Jonathan Marchessault with goalie Marc-Andre Fleury pulled for an extra attacker.
Stone had two assists, and Fleury made 21 saves for the Golden Knights (2-0-0), winning both games in their season-opening series against the Ducks (0-2-0).
Max Comtois scored for the third time in two games for Anaheim, and John Gibson made 31 saves, including 14 in the first period.
Comtois scored on a 3-on-1 at 7:45 of the second period to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead.
