Golden Knights take control of series
The Vegas Golden Knights ran away with victory in the first game of the series. The Dallas Stars needed to win Game 2 to stay in a comfortable position in the series.

Dallas got the message and started the game strongly. Radek Faksa needed less than three minutes to get his team on the scoreboard.

As we saw in game number one, Vegas doesn’t give up so easily. Mark Stone took advantage of a 5-on-3 power play to score the Knights’ first goal.

As you can see from the sequence, Jake Oettinger was very surprised by the poor rebound in front of his net. Stone’s luck ran out, as he only just managed to tap the puck into the net.

After one period, it was tied 1-1.

The Stars decided to take control of the game in the second period. Jason Robertson took advantage of a power play to score Dallas’ second goal. The return throw was bouncy, but he caught it in flight to beat Aidin Hill.

The goal was Robertson’s second in the series against the Golden Knights. It must have felt good, given that he hadn’t found the back of the net throughout the series against the Seattle Kraken.

The Golden Knights were limited to 10 shots in the first two periods. Jake Oettinger did an excellent job in front of the net, but it was much easier with so few shots.

After two periods, the Stars were up 2-0.

The Stars limited the Golden Knights’ shots again in the third period, but it wasn’t enough.

Jonathan Marchessault tied the game with less than three minutes remaining.

Once again, the game goes to overtime.

Unfortunately for Dallas, the Golden Knights do very well in overtime. It helps when it’s in front of such a lively crowd. Chandler Stephenson scores the winning goal in overtime, and the crowd in Vegas explodes with joy.

The Golden Knights took control of the series, winning 3-2. Game 3 of the series travels to Dallas on Tuesday, when the Stars will need to win to avoid being pushed up against the wall, having already lost 2-0 in the series.
