The Vegas Golden Knights seem to really enjoy playing home games at T-Mobile Arena; completely understandable, considering they've won eight straight games there.
The Golden Knights improved to 9-1-0 at home with a 5-4 overtime victory against the San Jose Sharks on Friday. Jonathan Marchessault scored at 1:21 of overtime for Vegas, which has the fewest home defeats of any team in the NHL and hasn't lost at its rink since a 6-3 win by the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 13.
The eight-game home winning streak matched the NHL record for longest by a team in its inaugural season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The 1917-18 Toronto Arenas went 8-0-0 from Dec. 21, 1917-Feb. 11, 1918.
The Golden Knights also have won four in a row and are one victory away from equaling their longest winning streak this season. When they won five straight from Oct. 15-27, they tied an NHL mark, set by the 1926-27 New York Rangers and tied by the 1979-80 Edmonton Oilers for longest by an League team in its inaugural season, according to Elias.
