Why didn’t any other Gospel but Matthew mention the dead rising from the graves at Jesus crucifixion?

 …The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. Matthew 27:51-53

            This is an incredible moment as the dead stepped out of their graves and walked into town to greet others.  It seems all the Gospels would talk about it.  But keep in mind how many incredible things happened in the life of Jesus.  This was another one of them, not the only one.  It also says “many holy people” which could range from 5 to 10, not necessarily ALL the holy people who ever lived, which would be even more extraordinary.  It was a preview of the resurrection and a moment much like calling Lazarus out of the grave.
