LAS VEGAS (AP) — David Perron and Brayden Schenn scored in a shootout to lift the St. Louis Blues over the Vegas Golden Knights 5-4.
Max Pacioretty got his seventh career hat trick for the Golden Knights, who were missing their entire coaching staff because of COVID-19 concerns.
General manager Kelly McCrimmon took over head coaching duties and was assisted by staff from the team's minor league affiliate in the AHL, the Henderson Silver Knights.
Perron scored twice in regulation, and Jaden Schwartz and Jordan Kyrou also had goals for St. Louis. Jordan Binnington was brilliant in net, making 42 saves.
Alex Tuch added a goal for Vegas.
Shea Theodore scored during the shootout, and Robin Lehner had 21 saves.
