After a sleepy first two periods of scoreless hockey, the Sabres broke through early in the 3rd. Vegas wasn’t mustering up much, but finally found a wacky game tying goal from Deryk Engelland that banked off a Buffalo player. OT was back and forth but neither team could convert. David Perron got the Golden Knights on the board first in shootout, but Buffalo tied it with their last attempt. Erik Haula came through with the game winner in shootout.
