Golden Knights make history with win against Coyotes

LAS VEGAS -- Vegas Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant kept the pregame pep talk to a minimum.

Once the emotional ceremony prior to their inaugural home opener ended, it was on to hockey, and Vegas came out on fire.

The Golden Knights scored four goals in the opening 10:42 and defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 at T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday, becoming the first NHL expansion team to start 3-0-0.
