Smith scores in OT, Vegas takes 2-0 series lead on Chicago

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Even though Reilly Smith called it a lucky bounce, a whole lot more than luck is working right now for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Smith scored in overtime, Robin Lehner made 22 saves and the Golden Knights beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 on Thursday to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round series. Vegas has won all five of its games since the NHL resumed.

"We're a pretty resilient group," said Smith, who has three goals in the series. "We need to bring that for all 60 minutes. ... There's still a lot of things we need to clean up, but we'll take the win and try to get a little bit better tomorrow."
