The Golden Knights had a bit of an up and down first before finally breaking through late in the 1st. Directly out of the gate in the 2nd William Karlsson scored his second goal of the game to give the Golden Knights a 2-0 lead. However, a slew of penalties led to a ton of 5-on-4 and 4-on-4 play in the 2nd. San Jose took complete advantage of it and scored three straight. The Golden Knights killed a big penalty to start the 3rd which eventually led to a massive game tying goal by Nate Schmidt. Vegas had a chance late with a power play but the game headed to OT. Jonathan Marchessault appeared to win the game in the 1st OT, but the goal was called back due to goalie interference. In the 2nd OT, the Sharks drew two penalties and scored on the latter. The series is now tied and heads to San Jose on Monday.
Upcoming stories from the Vegas Golden Knights vs. San Jose Sharks in Game 2 of Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs at T-Mobile Arena.
- Did the Sharks execute their game or did the Golden Knights give one up by losing their composure?
- Stay at 5-on-5 and Vegas will win the series. It’s really that simple.
- A closer look at the goalie interference. Sorry, but they may have just gotten it right.

Golden Knights are better at 5-on-5, they are not at any other situation. Stay out of the box in SJ and you come back up 3-1. Little adversity never killed anybody. The series is now tied.
