Detroit Red Wings’ Anthony Mantha scores tying, winning goals in 3-2 overtime victory at Vegas Golden Knights
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Anthony Mantha scored the tying goal midway through the third period and got the game-winner 19 seconds into overtime, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night.
Luke Glendening also scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard stopped 28 shots to improve to 3-5-0 in his last eight starts.
On the winning goal, Vegas’ Reilly Smith — playing in his 500th career game — turned the puck over right in front of the net, where Dylan Larkin fed Mantha, who poked home his 19th of the season, and first game-winning goal.
Smith and Cody Eakin scored for the Golden Knights, and Malcolm Subban finished with 27 saves while falling to 13-2-0 in two seasons at T-Mobile Arena.
Mantha tied the score on a power play with 8:43 left in the third period on a one-timer from the right circle.
