Vegas got a goal within the first minute of the game by Reilly Smith, but it seemed to unravel on them for the rest of the first 40 minutes. Missing Nate Schmidt and Luca Sbisa on the blue line and James Neal and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, the Golden Knights were a complete mess in their own end. Four of the next five goals went to the Senators and Vegas took a two-goal deficit to the locker room after two. The Golden Knights stormed back in the 3rd getting a shorthanded goal by Ryan Carpenter to tie the game but moments later the Senators regained the lead, one they would hold until the game’s end.
