After the Jets opened the scoring early in the first period, Vegas received goals in quick succession from Jonathan Marchessault, Max Pacioretty and Nate Schmidt to take a 3-1 lead. The Golden Knights carried that lead into the third period before two late goals from Winnipeg forced overtime. Kyle Connor connected in the extra frame to seal a 4-3 win for the visitors.

Nate Schmidt: Schmidt potted his first goal of the season in his second game back from injury.

William Karlsson: Karlsson recorded two assists during the game to have at least one point in all four games during Vegas' homestand.

Max Pacioretty: Pacioretty snapped a 12-game goal drought with his third of the season during the first period.

ATTENDANCE: 18,276 fans came to T-Mobile Arena for the game as the team observed Día de Muertos.

The Golden Knights shift gears and hit the road for a four-game trip that features stops in Columbus, Toronto, Washington and Detroit. Vegas and the Blue Jackets collide Tuesday night at 4 p.m. PT on AT&T SportsNet and FOX Sports Radio 98.9/1340.
