The Golden Knights didn’t get off to the best start but Marc-Andre Fleury was tremendous to start the game. Connor Hellebuyck had a good start stifling a few chances for Vegas as well. Then, Tomas Tatar missed a wide open net but quickly recovered the rebound and put it in the net to give the Golden Knights the lead. Quickly after the Golden Knights struck again with a breakaway goal from Jonathan Marchessault. Instantly off the draw of the second goal, Erik Haula hit the post which could have made it 3-0. The Jets scored on a power play but less than 90 seconds later a tremendous shift by the first line regained the two goal lead. Vegas bled the clock out well and got to the finish line to even the series.
