In both the 1st and 2nd periods the Golden Knights controlled play for a majority but struggled down the stretch of the periods. The Islanders scored twice in the final two minutes of the 1st and should have tallied another at the end of the 2nd but the shot sailed high. In between those stretches though, Vegas played tremendous hockey with their first goal from Brandon Pirri. Then the Golden Knights appeared to tie it but an offside challenge took the goal away. A 4-on-4 goal by William Karlsson tied it up and moments later a perfect feed from Reilly Smith to Paul Stastny gave the Golden Knights the lead.
