Now the Sharks send out Kevin Labanc to start things for Sharks but Labanc was unsuccessful in his try. Vegas then sends out Jack Eichel to try to put something on the board.

Eichel’s goal was successful and Vegas now was up five to four. The last player the Sharks sent out was Mikael Granlund to try to even things up. Granlund was unsuccessful in handing Vegas the win.
