Vegas seized the momentum in the second period with three goals in the middle frame. Just seconds after a power play expired they took the lead, with RW Sean Wiles sneaking a backhander under G Scott Greenham for the 1-0 lead at 6:08.

Bakersfield scored 3:51 into the third, with C Parker Stanfield redirecting home a centering feed from LW Evan Trupp to once again make it a one-goal game. At 12:34, C Eric Lampe notched his second of the game for the Wranglers to make it 4-2 and put it out of reach. Las Vegas added an empty netter in the waning seconds to account for the final score.
