Max Pacioretty scored the game-winner Friday in a 3-2 victory over Colorado. The goal gave the Golden Knights their first win of the series as they trail Colorado 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Pacioretty has two goals and four points in four games after missing the first six games of the playoffs with an undisclosed injury that caused him to also miss the last six games of the regular season. Pacioretty had eight shots on goal. He had 24 goals and 51 points in 48 games in the regular season and is one of the Golden Knights top offensive threats, if not the best.
