It was a hell of a win by the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday as they beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 in overtime at Rogers Place.
In what was a mouthwatering top of the Pacific Division battle, the Vegas Golden Knights produced the goods again for their second consecutive win to stretch their lead to three points at the top of the division.
It didn’t start well for the Golden Knights, however, as the Oilers landed the first blow of the night despite being without Connor McDavid due to illness, with Alex Chiasson deflecting a shot past Fleury.

The Golden Knights made it a tied game at the end of the first period, however, as Nicolas Roy cashed in on the power play.
There were no goals in the second period with both goalies standing on their heads for their respective teams.
And Marchessault played a huge role in the game-winner as he shut down Oilers defenseman Ethan Bear, before feeding the puck to Shea Theodore who unleashed an absolute bomb past Koskinen to win the game in style for Vegas.
This was a gigantic win by the Golden Knights and there were three players in particular who played a crucial part in the overtime success in Edmonton.
