Reilly Smith #19 of the Vegas Golden Knights scores the game-winning goal at 7:13 of overtime against the Chicago Blackhawks to win the game 4-3 in Game Two of the Western Conference First Round during the 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Rogers Place on August 13, 2020 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Smith and Paul Stastny each had a goal and an assist, Tomas Nosek and Mark Stone also scored, Jonathan Marchessault had two assists, and Robin Lehner made 22 saves for top-seeded Vegas, which has a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford stopped 35 of the 39 shots he faced in a losing effort. Vegas is 8-1-0 in their history against Chicago. "They're a really good third-period team". In the first matchup on October 22 at the United Center, the Golden Knights outlasted the Blackhawks, 2-1, in a shootout.

Nosek had entered the lineup for Max Pacioretty, the leading goal and point scorer for Vegas during the regular season, who was deemed unfit to play. Nosek departed in the final minutes of the second period with an apparent injury and did not return.
