What happens in Vegas … is winning.
The Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Los Angeles Kings 4-2 at T-Mobile Arena on Sunday for their seventh straight win at home.
The Golden Knights, who are 8-1-0 at home this season, became the second team in NHL history to win seven consecutive home games at any point in its inaugural season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The Toronto Arenas won eight in a row at home from Dec. 21, 1917 to Feb. 11, 1918.
The Golden Knights (12-6-1, 25 points) got two goals from William Karlsson to move to within one point for the Kings (12-7-2) for first place in the Pacific Division.
Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson made 50 saves (not a typo, it was 50), including a number of show stoppers, in a 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers.
The Winnipeg Jets are off to a flying start and their captain Blake Wheeler is a big reason why. Check out his eye-popping stats since earning the 'C' on his jersey.
Ducks dynamic duo
Longtime teammates Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame together last week. On Sunday, the Ducks honored the pair and the fans at Honda Center couldn't have been happier.
New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 20 saves, including a beautiful sliding stop going across the crease, to preserve a shutout in a 3-0 win against the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square Garden.
Celebrate good times
If you are going to score a goal as impressive as this one, you'd better celebrate it right. That was not an issue for Jets goalie prospect Mikhail Berdin.
