An early penalty put the Golden Knights on the power play which they cashed in on with a Shea Theodore goal eerily similar to the one he scored against Pittsburgh. Carolina came right back creating chances left and right before getting one to go on a great kick pass from Justin Williams to Nino Niederreiter. A miserable error by Max Lagace to start the period led to the Hurricanes first lead. Vegas battled through a poorly played period to tie it at two but less than a minute later Carolina retook the lead again. The Golden Knights couldn’t get anything going in the 3rd as they conceded an early goal to go down a pair. An empty netter late sealed it.
