The Vegas Golden Knights held a three-point lead in the Pacific Division before the NHL paused its season. As the team found its stride during a crucial point in the season, the team put up stats that deserve a second look as we wait for the sport's return.

Rewind to Feb. 13 when the Golden Knights pulled off a dramatic 6-5 win against the St. Louis Blues to kick off an eight-game win streak and a slew of 11 wins in 13 games. From that point, Vegas had one of its strongest stretches in franchise history.

3- Max Pacioretty, Reilly Smith and Shea Theodore have each scored three game-winning goals since Feb. 13.

4- The Golden Knights made four trades leading up to the trade deadline that saw the team acquire Alec Martinez, Nick Cousins, Robin Lehner and a conditional 4th round pick.

5- Theodore found the back of the net five times during those 13 games. Those five goals are tied for the league lead among defensemen during that stretch.

5- Lehner allowed only five goals on 83 shots during his first three games with the Golden Knights. All three of his appearances have been victories.

8- Martinez posted eight points (2G, 6A) in 10 games since being acquired by the Golden Knights.

10- Despite only playing in seven games since Feb. 13, Mark Stone posted 10 points (1G, 9A) before missing time with an injury.

11- Martinez and Cousins have combined for 11 points (3G, 8A) since joining the team.

12- William Karlsson was leading the team with 12 takeaways during that stretch.

14- Pacioretty is the team's leading scorer during that period with 14 points (6G, 8A) in 13 games.

22- Vegas accrued 22 of a possible 26 points in the standings during their recent success.

23- Since Feb. 13, 23 different players have recorded at least one points for Vegas.

32- Martinez has blocked the most shots of any Golden Knight with 32 blocks in his 10 games.

53- Pacioretty and Jonathan Marchessault tied for the team lead in shots during that stretch with 53 each.
