October 20, 2020

The Golden Knights continued their eastern road trip with a stop in Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning.

Both goalies Fleury and Vasilevskiy were sensational in the first period of this game as the score remained 0-0

7 minutes into the second period Anthony Cirelli scored from Christian Folin and Dominik Masin to make it 1-0 Lightning. Just 3 minutes later Yanni Gourde scored from J.T. Miller to make it 2-0 as the period came to a close.

Just 40 seconds into the third period Vegas got on the board with a goal by Marchessault set up from Karlsson and Pacioretty. At 8:59 Dennis Yan scored his third goal of the season from Folin and Cirelli and the Lightning has a 3-1 lead. Then with just 5 minutes remaining in the game Steven Stamkos scored from Palat and Kucherov to make it 4-1 Lightning. This was Stamkos 400 career goal as he celebrated with his team mates. Vegas could not beat Vasilevskiy the rest of the way and the Lightning won the game 4-1 at home.
