Evgenii Dadonov gave the Golden Knights a 3-0 advantage in his first game back in the lineup. Nashville got within two but Jack Eichel responded with his sixth of the season. All three 2nd period tallies were power play goals.
Leading 4-1 the Golden Knights defended well limiting the Predators chances on net. Vegas’ Chandler Stephenson took a one-time pass from Eichel on the power play to score the Golden Knights third man-advantage goal of the night. Late in the game Alex Pietrangelo tapped in VGK’s sixth goal of the game.
