San Jose got on the board first midway through the period. The Golden Knights were awarded two power play opportunities in the opening twenty minutes but couldn’t convert them into a goal.
The Sharks doubled their lead :29 seconds into the middle period. Mark Stone answered back a minute later with a power play goal to cut the lead in half.
Trailing 2-1 with 20 minutes remaining in the game Stone got to work again. The captain tied the game with his second power play goal of the evening. Robin Lehner was strong down the stretch shutting San Jose down in the final 20 minutes.
The Golden Knights and Sharks went back and forth in overtime but neither team could score the game-winner. Alex Tuch was the only player to score in a shootout and the Golden Knights pulled off a 3-2 victory.
Vegas’ record improves to 32-11-2 after their 3-2 shoutout victory against San Jose. The Golden Knights and Sharks resume their two game set on Wednesday night. The game is scheduled for 6:30 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)
Analysis: Mark Stone played spoiler on Patrick Marleau’s special night. He single-handedly willed the Golden Knights across the regulation finish line scoring twice on the power play. In OT the Golden Knights continued to be dominant but couldn’t beat Jones. In a shocking twist, Robin Lehner won in shootout stopping all three shots. Fun game. (Analysis by Ken)
