Evgenii Dadonov scored in overtime to give the Vegas Golden Knights a 3-2 comeback victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.

Shea Theodore scored the first goal for Vegas, followed by Jonathan Marchessault, who tied the game with a shot from the left faceoff dot with 1:02 remaining in the third. Laurent Brossoit, making his first start for the Golden Knights, stopped 32 shots.

For Dallas, Luke Glendening and Alexander Radulov scored, and Anton Khudobin had 18 saves.

The winning goal came when Dadonov picked up the puck inside the right faceoff circle, turned and sent a shot past Khudobin. Nicolas Roy assisted.

Two was the magic number on Wednesday: Both teams used their No. 2 goalie, scored on their second shot and Glendening and Theodore picked up their second goals of the season.

The Stars struck first just 2:20 into the game with a shot by Glendening. Vegas responded at 3:47, when Theodore beat Khudobin.

Vegas had a season-low 20 shots on goal.

Despite Dallas's 15-5 advantage in shots on goal in the first period, it ended in a 1-1 tie. Dallas broke that at 6:56 of the second, when Radulov tipped in a high shot from the right point by Jani Hakanpaa.
