A wild 1st period saw multiple Golden Knights penalties, a couple Blues goals, a shorthanded goal for Vegas and an even-strength one from Marchessault. The pace came back down to earth in the 2nd, but the Golden Knights stole a goal with some beautiful passing from Tomas Tatar, Erik Haula, and James Neal. Golden Knights Expansion Draft pick Chris Thorburn scored his first goal of the season to tie it midway through the 3rd. The overtime period lasted all of 22 seconds as Jonathan Marchessault with a sweet curl with the puck to the high slot where he fired one past a screened Jake Allen.

With the win, the Golden Knights are now ONE POINT from winning the Pacific Division. A win or an overtime loss, or any SJS loss, in any of the next four games will clinch it. #VegasBorn
