It may only be rookie camp, but a win is a win for the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Golden Knights partied hard on social media after defeating the rival Los Angeles Kings rookies 4-0 in El Segundo, California, on Wednesday, for their first win in franchise history.

Tweet from @GoldenKnights: This postgame celebration is dedicated to everyone who has ever tweeted us saying we'd never win a game.

Tweet from @GoldenKnights: Count down the clock as WE JUST WON OUR FIRST GAME IN TEAM HISTORY!

Vegas capped its rookie camp with the second of a two-game series against the Kings rookies. It also closed two days of trash talk between the teams' Twitter accounts, which the Golden Knights also seemed to win.

Tweet from @GoldenKnights: Two Stanley Cups in the last five years and once regarded as the best Twitter account in the league, and now....��\_(���)_/��

The Golden Knights can't actually earn their first victory until Sunday, when they play a preseason game against the Vancouver Canucks (5 p.m. ET; NHLN, SN, TVA Sports, ATTSN-RM), and won't officially be in the record books until they play their regular-season opener at the Dallas Stars on Oct. 6.
