The Golden Knights had a hard time getting possession for most of the 1st period which limited them offensively. They were controlling the Jets in their own end until a mistake from Fleury allowed for an easy tap in for Joel Armia to give Winnipeg the 1-0. An absolute monster effort by Reilly Smith (see below) got the Golden Knights on the board with a shorthanded goal, then Erik Haula found a puck underneath Hellebuyck to give Vegas the lead after 40. Late in the 3rd the Jets tied the game sending it to OT. A wild OT period in which it appeared Winnipeg scored three times ends with a David Perron snipe to give the Golden Knights the win.
