Season SeriesVegas won the first meeting, 4-3 in a shootout in Nashville on Dec. 8. Malcolm Subban made a career-high 41 saves — including one against his older sibling P.K., a star Nashville defenseman — and then denied all six shootout attempts. It was the first time the Subbans faced each other in an NHL game. They became the 10th set of brothers to play against one another with one a skater and the other a goaltender. Reilly Smith scored the only goal of a six-round shootout for the Golden Knights. William Karlsson, James Neal and Erik Haula scored in regulation. Calle Jarnkrok, Viktor Arvidsson and Nick Bonino had the goals for Nashville. Pekka Rinne made 36 saves.
