After a shaky first frame for the which saw the Sharks hit the post a few times  The Knights rode a two-goal second period to victory.

Jonathan Marchessault gave Vegas a 1-0 lead at 6:33 of the second period. After William Karlsson forced a turnover by Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic near the blue line, Reilly Smith got the loose puck and passed to Marchessault, who beat Jones five-hole from the slot

 

Nate Schmidt extended the lead to 2-0 at 15:38 with a wrist shot from the point. Initially ruled no goal, a horn sounded to stop play, the review showed that the puck did, hit the net cam and cross the goal line.

 

 

With the San Jose Sharks facing elimination, we expected a desperate third. However, as they have all year, Vegas kept the gas pedal down.
