That moment will face William Karlsson's between-the-legs goal against San Jose which knocked off the Pacific Division title in a 73% to 27% faceoff.

The clinching game of the Western Conference Finals will move on after overcoming Karlsson's first hat trick in franchise history, 82% to 18%. The No. 6 seed represented by Karlsson's playoff overtime winner against the Sharks in game three of the second round advanced again, this time out-earning James Neal's first goal in franchise history by a margin of 53% to 47%.

City National Arena Conference

No. 1 Engelland's Speech vs. No. 2 Karlsson Between the Legs Goal
Prior to the opening faceoff of the Vegas Golden Knights inaugural home opener, Deryk Engelland expressed his gratitude to the first responders of the October 1 tragedy. Engelland called Vegas home long before being selected by the Golden Knights in the 2017 Expansion Draft. His overarching message to the Vegas faithful: "We are Vegas Strong."

With 11:25 remaining in a 2-2 game against San Jose, William Karlsson poked the puck past Brent Burns at the blueline during a penalty kill. On a clear-cut breakaway, Karlsson skated in from the left side and held the puck in front of his body. When Martin Jones reached out with a poke-check, Karlsson put his stick between his legs and elevated the puck over a sprawled Jones and into the top left corner. The shorthanded goal stood as the game-winner and will long be remembered by Golden Knights fans.

T Mobile Arena Conference

No. 1 Western Conference Champions vs. No. 6 Karlsson's OT Goal
On May 20, the Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Winnipeg Jets, 2-1, in Game Five of the Western Conference Final to clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Final. Deryk Engelland claimed the Clarence Campbell Bowl on behalf of the Golden Knights to signify the first conference championship in franchise history. Ryan Reaves netted the game-winning goal in the second period against his hometown Jets to propel the Golden Knights to the Western Conference title.

Coming off the first playoff loss in franchise history, the Golden Knights went to overtime for the second straight game against the San Jose Sharks in the second round of the playoffs. At 8:17 of the first overtime, James Neal set up William Karlsson to burst down the right wing with plenty of open space to work with. Before Brent Burns could get into position, Wild Bill snapped a wrist shot over the blocker of Martin Jones and under the cross bar to lift Vegas to victory in game three.
