This loss to the St. Louis Blues is a hard one to blame on the goaltender. Marc-Andre Fleury had a .949 save percentage, and the Vegas Golden Knights killed off both power play opportunities with his help. Carter Hutton, however, was the superior goaltender, helping the Blues defeat Vegas by a score of 2-1.It felt like this was destined to be the end of the winning streak as soon as the Golden Knights couldn't get anything going in the first period. The Knights stole back possession for the second period but lost it again in the third. During their brief possession peak, all the Knights got was one goal, from Erik Haula.This game showed how to beat the Knights — take away vertical passing lanes and zone entries. Gerard Gallant now has to adjust, and hopefully this loss can serve as a learning experience.Paul Stastny got the game-winning goal for the Blues, with Alexander Steen opening the scoring. Both broke long scoring droughts with their goals.Again, it's hard to blame Fleury, who was on fire for much of the game. The offense just has to come back hot against the Chicago Blackhawks.Steen's goal came off a basketball play Alex Steen opens the scoring Vegas Golden Knights Shop.
