The Vegas Golden Knights (34-18-4, 73 points) left one point on the table in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks (19-32-5, 43 points) Thursday night on the road. Tyler Johnson scored the only goal in the shootout after he also tied the game with 45 seconds remaining on the powerplay.

Patrick Kane almost scored a dramatic overtime-winning goal with 0.1 seconds left as he blasted a slapshot above Laurent Brossoit. After review, it was determined that the goal came after overtime had expired. 

The Golden Knights' five-game winning streak has now been snapped, and they have also lost their first-ever game at United Center.
