Look back at five things that stand out from each VGK win

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights /

While the Vegas Golden Knights' home opener had a slew of moments on and off the ice that saw fans leave T-Mobile Arena happy, the team's second game of the year had similar thrills.

The Golden Knights traveled to San Jose for their first road game of the season on Oct. 4 and were returning to the site of their Game 7 loss to the Sharks in the 2019 playoffs. With a new season just beginning and two points already in their pockets, the Golden Knights went to work creating more memories en route to another pair of points.

Fleury Plays in 800th NHL Game
Add another one to Marc-Andre Fleury's list of career accomplishments. The veteran goaltender picked up win No. 441 in his 800th NHL game in the 5-1 win on Oct. 4. Fleury is one of 16 goalies in NHL history to play in 800 games and he rang in the milestone night with a 34-save performance.

Hague Makes NHL Debut
For the second game in a row, a member of the Golden Knights' 2017 NHL Draft class reached the big time. Nicolas Hague, Vegas' second round pick in 2017, suited up for the first time as a Golden Knight on Oct. 4 to make his debut against the Sharks. As he skated alongside veteran Deryk Engelland, Hague soaked in the experience during the 5-1 win.

Nosek Notches A Pair
After Reilly Smith's two-goal performance on Oct. 2, Tomas Nosek continued the trend with a pair of goals of his own on Oct. 4. Mark Stone picked up an assist on each goal to help Nosek find the back of the net twice.

The first road game of the year meant the first VGK Watch Party of the season for Golden Knights fans. The game was on the big screen at the Red Rock Casino pool for all fans to watch and enjoy the victory together while having some VGK fun.
