Vegas finds win column versus San Jose

After struggling the past couple of games, the Vegas Golden Knights were able to score a win for the first time in the last three games as they defeated the San Jose Sharks 3-1 at T-Mobile Arena Tuesday, March 1.

Head coach Pete DeBoer reached a milestone moment as he picked up his 500th career win.

“You don't remember the wins and losses," he said. "You remember the people, coaching staff, trainers, doctors, world-class players that we get the chance to work with every day. You feel fortunate that you've had the opportunity to work in the best league in the world."

DeBoer has compiled a career coaching record of 500-372-119.

“We believe in him. It’s been a good road for him and we just want to keep going here,” center Jonathan Marchessault said of DeBoer.

With the win, Vegas picks up their 64th point of the season as they continue to chase the LA Kings and Calgary Flames in the Pacific Division race. Vegas has a record of 30-20-4 on the season so far with 28 games remaining in the regular season.

Vegas finds themselves back on home ice Thursday, March 3 as they welcome the Boston Bruins to town. It will be the second meeting between the teams this season with Vegas winning in Boston on Dec. 14, 4-1.

This game can be seen nationally on ESPN at 6:00 p.m. PST.

In this game, the misfit line of Marchessault, center William Karlsson and right-wing Reilly Smith produced the bulk of the scoring.

Smith found the back of the net twice and Marchessault assisted on two of the three Vegas goals. Karlsson also finished the night with two assists.

It was a solid performance from goaltender Robin Lehner who allowed only one goal in the game.

Lehner recorded 16 saves on 17 attempts for a final save percentage of .941. This marked the first game back for him after missing a few weeks due to injury.

“It was nice to get back out there, obviously," he said. "The team played great today."
