Reilly Smith scored at 7:13 of overtime to give the Golden Knights a 4-3 victory over Chicago in Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.

The Knights lead 2-0 in the best-of-seven series, which continues at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Nosek departed late in the second period with an apparent injury and did not return.

Robin Lehner made his third straight start in goal ahead of Marc-Andre Fleury for the Knights.

Kirby Dach, Dominik Kubalik, Dylan Strome scored Chicago’s goals in the second period, and Patrick Kane had three assists.

The Knights played without left wing Max Pacioretty, who was ruled unfit to play prior to the start of warmups and missed his fourth game of the postseason.
