It’s a goal Amadio will never ever forget not only because it’s a game-winner in a Stanley Cup Playoffs game but also because it was his first ever in a postseason contest.
“Michael Amadio’s 1st career playoff goal At the most important time. What a freakin’ moment. A series and season-shifting goal #VegasBorn,” tweeted Logan Reever.
“Wow, what a win for the Vegas Golden Knights; just tremendous to be able to bounce back from conceding the tying goal late.Advantage Vegas, who go up 2-1 in the series. Michael Amadio is the OT villain in Winnipeg.,” said Ben Steiner.
From Helene Elliott: “A former King has led the Vegas Golden Knights to a double-overtime playoff win…but it wasn’t Jonathan Quick. Kudos to Michael Amadio, who gave the Knights a 2-1 series lead over Winnipeg.”
Amadio’s goal capped a wild night in Winnipeg. The Golden Knights scored the first two goals of the game and four of the first five. But the Jets were not simply going to go quietly into the night, as they torched Vegas for three straight goals in the third period to force overtime. The first overtime went scoreless and just when it looked as though a third was needed, Amadio found the back of the net with just a little under four minutes remaining in the second OT.
With the win, Vegas is now up in the series, 2-1, with a chance to extend that lead in Game 4 in Winnipeg on Monday.
