“What a player,” Dallas coach Peter DeBoer said the 20-year-old forward. “He still can’t get in the casino and play cards, he’s not old enough, it’s unbelievable.

Johnston’s shots on goal tied a career high, as he was arguably Dallas’ best player.

“You don’t want to go down 3-0 to the defending Stanley Cup champs,” Johnston said. “So I think it’s that desperation coming out and making sure we’re doing all those things that make us successful.”

Brayden McNabb and Jack Eichel scored for Vegas, and Thompson stopped a career-high 43 shots. Dallas, which averaged 31.5 shots per game during the regular season, held a whopping advantage of high-danger shots, 27-4.

Game 4 is Monday night in Las Vegas.

“It’s huge,” Oettinger said. “I mean, you lose that game you’re down 3-0 and you never know what happens there. So, we win a game on Monday, we have home-ice advantage again.”

Johnston opened the scoring midway through the first period when he backhanded a loose puck off a rebound through Thompson’s pads.
