Best Moments of The NHL’s First Quarter

Golden Knights win first game 

Playing their first game in the NHL, the Vegas Golden Knights got 45 saves from Marc-Andre Fleury, and James Neal scored two goals in a 2-1 win against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Oct. 7. Each of Neal’s goals were scored in the third period, including the game-winner with 2:44 remaining. The game took place six days after 58 people died in a mass shooting in Las Vegas. “It’s a big thing, not just because it’s the first game in the history of the team,” Fleury said. “We all wanted it to be a good memory that way, but also for everything that’s happened back home and try to have the town behind us, have them be proud of their team. I’m glad we got that first one in.” — Brian Compton, Deputy Managing Editor
