Pacioretty, Stone Score To Give Las Vegas 2-1 Win Over Sharks
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Max Pacioretty and Mark Stone each had a goal and an assist to help the Vegas Golden Knights beat the San Jose Sharks 2-1.
Marc-Andre Fleury, making his 16th start in 17 games, finished with 23 saves to improve to 14-5-0 this season.
Fleury earned his 481st career win, inching closer to Ed Belfour, who ranks fourth with 484. Pacioretty scored in the first period and delivered a perfect backhand pass early in the third to Stone, who one-timed a wrist shot to make it 2-0.
It ended up being Stone's sixth game-winning goal. Timo Meier scored late for San Jose, and Devan Dubnyk stopped 34 shots. The Golden Knights are 12-1-3 in 16 regular-season meetings with San Jose.
