Eichel similarly provided the primary assist for the Golden Knights Jonathan Marchessault’s game-tying goal late in the third period of Game 2 of the Western Conference Final on Sunday. Chandler Stephenson scored the game-winner 72 seconds into overtime, giving Vegas a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series.
