Vegas Golden Knights Look Out Matched

Vegas must have felt good coming off their 6-4 game one win, but they will be feeling different after Saturday night. The Golden Knights were looking to take a 2-0 series lead, but they were blitzed early and beaten 5-1.

Edmonton came out firing in the first period as they scored 2:21 into the game and never looked back. The Oilers added three more first period goals and led 4-0 heading into the second. Connor McDavid added another in the second period to make it 5-0 before the Golden Knights grabbed a consolation goal early in the third. Complete domination by the Oilers to grab home ice advantage.

Ivan Barbashev scored the only Vegas goal of the night, and he was assisted by Mark Stone. Laurent Brassoit was pulled after giving up five goals on 32 shots and Adin Hill stopped all four of the shots he faced in relief.

The Edmonton Oilers Offense is Elite

Edmonton had to have liked their chances in this series before it started, and they have made themselves favorites to advance to the Western Conference Finals. The Oilers now have home ice advantage as they head back to Rogers Place looking to take a 2-1 series lead.

Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid each scored two goals on the night, and they were joined by Evan Bouchard on the scoresheet. Five different Oilers recorded an assist in the game two win.
