The Vegas Golden Knights (18-13-5) notched a 6-3 win against the Vancouver Canucks (16-14-4) on Sunday night at T-Mobile Arena.

Nick Holden opened the scoring early in the first period with his third goal of the season. Elias Pettersson answered for Vancouver, but a power-play goal from Valentin Zykov gave the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead heading into the first intermission. Vegas doubled its lead in the second period as Jonathan Marchessault and Mark Stone scored to put the home team up 4-1. Brock Boeser scored for the Canucks in the third period to cut the Golden Knights' lead to 4-2 but Max Pacioretty answered right back on a breakaway for the fifth Vegas goal of the evening. A Jake Virtanen goal made it 5-3 before Pacioretty scored again to allow the Golden Knights to cruise to the 6-3 win.

Marchessault's goal was his 100th career goal. The century marker came in the Golden Knights' 100th home game and 200th game overall in franchise history.

Max Pacioretty: Pacioretty's goal and two assists extended his point streak to four games.

Shea Theodore: Theodore collected three assists for the second game in a row.

Mark Stone: Stone posted a two-point (1G, 1A) effort in the victory.

Valentin Zykov: Zykov's goal was his first of the season and first goal ever at T-Mobile Arena.
