The Golden Knights seemed to forget the game started as they allowed a quick one from the Jets, but that goal sure did wake them up. An incredible response started with a goal from Jonathan Marchessault, and then two more from Nate Schmidt and Max Pacioretty inside of four minutes. Vegas took the 3-1 lead into the first intermission.

The 2nd period was highlighted by a dirty hit by Adam Lowry on Alex Tuch. A clear headshot sent Tuch to the locker room and left Lowry to have to fight Ryan Reaves. Lowry actually did very well and then his team backed up him playing much better as the period went on. However, Vegas did well to fend them off keeping the score at 3-1.

A power play goal cut the lead to one. Then a missed call gifted the Jets the game-tying goal.

Vegas struggled again in overtime blowing another game in which they had a two-goal lead in the 3rd period.
