The Vegas Golden Knights briefly remembered they are an expansion team on Tuesday night, allowing three Buffalo Sabres goals in a 9-minute, 51-second span in the third period to squander a 4-1 lead. But they wiped away the flop sweat in overtime, as David Perron sniped his second goal of the game (and the season) for the 5-4 win. In the process, Vegas became only the second team in NHL history to win five of its first six games during its inaugural season. The last team to do so? The Montreal Canadiens in 1917-18, in the first season of the NHL and 12 years after the city of Las Vegas was founded. So it's, like, been a while.
