Golden Knights got one within the first minute from a re-direct by James Neal off a Deryk Engelland shot (Engelland’s 100th point). Vegas continued outskating the Lightning for a majority of the period and after missing a few good chances, Nate Schmidt was able to drive another one home. The Lightning power play did what it always does to make it 2-1, but an insane David Perron toe drag (see below) recovered the Vegas two goal lead into into the 3rd. The Golden Knights kept their foot on the pedal with an early 3rd period goal and then coasted to the finish line. Win number 30.
