Vegas hopeful home crowd can provide another boost vs. Wild

A crowd of only 2,605 in an arena that routinely sees standing-room audiences of more than 18,000 may not seem like a big deal for an NHL team, but the Vegas Golden Knights gave the small but vocal turnout a major assist in their 5-4 overtime comeback victory over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.

The crowd was the first at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in 363 days thanks to COVID-19 restrictions. A similar turnout is expected Wednesday night when the two teams conclude their West Division back-to-back showdown.

Trailing 4-2 entering the third period, the Golden Knights rallied to tie it on goals by Nicolas Hague and Alex Tuch, the latter with just 41.6 seconds remaining after goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had been pulled for an extra attacker.
