Golden Knights Set New NHL Record.

There was a lot of question marks heading into the Vegas Golden Knights inaugural season.

The question marks got even bigger thanks to general manager George McPhee's mismanagement of his roster, finding two his best players in the AHL to start the season due to his decision to draft too many defenseman with one way contracts during the expansion draft.

Despite the hiccups, the Golden Knights were off to a 2-0 start heading into their home opener on Tuesday night.

The team did not disappoint and set a new NHL record when they skated away with a 5-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Held up by another solid performance by goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, the Golden Knights became the first team in NHL history to start their debut season with three straight wins.

That wasn't the only way the Golden Knights got their name in the record books, with another two goals from forward James Neal, he became only the second player ever to have 5 goals in an expansion team's first three games, the other being Real Cloutier of the 1979-80 Quebec Nordiques.
