With their overtime win over the St. Louis Blues Saturday night, the Vegas Golden Knights have now won six of their first seven games, becoming the first team in NHL history to do so in their inaugural season.

The Golden Knights kicked off their first season with a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars which was then followed by back-to-back wins over the Arizona Coyotes. Their only loss came against the Detroit Red Wings. Since then the team has gone 3-0, beating the Bruins, Sabres, and Blues.

Despite their unexpected success, their sixth win of the season did come at a cost. Goaltender Malcolm Subban was helped off the ice during the third period after he appeared to injure himself making a save on Jaden Schwartz. With Marc-Andre Fleury still out with a concussion, the loss of Subban is huge and it will be interesting to see how the Golden Knights carry on without both goaltenders should they both remain out a while.

The Golden Knights next face the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday and Oscar Dansk, who replaced Subban, would likely start in net assuming both him and Fleury remain out.
