Max Pacioretty scores 7 ticks into OT as Knights edge Ducks

Max Pacioretty scored seven seconds into overtime as the Vegas Golden Knights completed a sweep of their season-opening two-game series with the Anaheim Ducks with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Pacioretty’s one-timer from bottom of the right circle into the top right corner came at the end of a two-on-one break with Mark Stone, who scooped up a loose puck on the opening faceoff of overtime and then broke into the Anaheim zone.

It was the fastest goal to start a period in Vegas team history and came just 89 seconds after teammate William Karlsson had scored to tie the game.

Marc-Andre Fleury had 21 saves for the Golden Knights, who won for the 12th time in 14 games in team history against the Ducks. Max Comtois scored the lone goal for Anaheim, while John Gibson finished with 31 saves.

Vegas, which scored three third-period goals to win Thursday night’s season-opener, 5-2, dominated a scoreless first period, outshooting the Ducks, 14-6, including 7-0 in high-danger chances, but they couldn’t solve Gibson.

The Ducks then took a 1-0 lead at the 7:45 mark of the second period when Comtois, who came into the season with just seven career goals, scored his third in five periods.
