The Flames answered in the second with two quick ones from Rasmus Andersson and Johnny Gaudreau. Mark Stone evened the playing field with a rebound that found its way five-hole on Rittich. William Carrier helped Vegas reclaim the lead with his second goal of the season and Paul Stastny added some extra insurance with his first of the year as the Golden Knights entered the third period leading by a pair. Ryan Reaves banked his first goal of the season in the third period and Cody Glass netted his second of the campaign to secure the 6-2 win.

TURNING POINT
After Stone tied the game, he Golden Knights cause commotion in front of Rittich at the midway point of the second period as William Karlsson picked up the puck behind the net. He found Carrier for the eventual game-winning goal.
