It was the Golden Knights and Sharks season series finale and it had very little actual meaning, but as the game wore on, you could tell both teams had something to prove.

Vegas jumped out early scoring on Sharks goaltender Martin Jones 3:54 into the 1st period. William Karlsson scored his 24th goal, and his 54th point of the season. Malcolm Subban playing on a back-to-back games stopped all of San Jose’s shots persevering the 1-0 opening period lead.

The Sharks tied the game :58 seconds into the 2nd period on Tomas Hertl’s 35th of the season. The tie wouldn’t hold for long as Cody Eakin continues his career season giving Vegas the 2-1 lead. Subban would again make key saves late in the period to keep the lead after two periods.

Evander Kane would get San Jose back in the game with a loose rebound in front of Subban. The Sharks would take their first lead of the game on a drive by Marc Eduard Vlasic off a face off. However, the Golden Knights would even the score 3-3 :38 seconds later. The game would need an overtime period to decide the game. Brent Burns would end it with a goal :22 seconds into overtime. The Sharks won 4-3 in OT.

The Golden Knights record (42-30-7). They are officially locked into the Pacific Division’s third place position, with three games left to play. The team will get back on the ice Monday night as Vegas will host Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)
