Golden Knights keep finding ways to win –

Another game, another starting goalie, another win for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Oscar Dansk, in his first NHL career start, made 29 saves to help lift the Golden Knights to a 4-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks at T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday.

With No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and backup Malcolm Subban injured, Dansk stepped in to give Vegas (7-1-0) its fourth straight win. The Golden Knights became the first team in the 100-year history of the NHL to win seven of its first eight games in its inaugural season.

The Golden Knights are one victory from matching the longest win streak by a team at any point in its inaugural season, a mark set by the 1926-27 New York Rangers and matched by the Edmonton Oilers in 1979-80. Vegas next plays the Colorado Avalanche at T-Mobile Arena on Friday (6 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, ATTSN-RN, ALT, NHL.TV).

Stamkos, Kucherov keep scoring

Tampa Bay Lightning forwards Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov each extended their season-opening point streaks to 10 games in a 5-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena on Tuesday, but not without a little drama.

Stamkos got the first of his two assists on a goal by defenseman Mikhail Sergachev at 9:13 of the second period. Kucherov cut it a little too close, scoring a goal with four seconds left in the game.

They are the fourth set of teammates in the past 27 years to start a season on simultaneous point streaks of at least 10 games, and first since 1992-93. That season, three different sets of teammates combined for the feat: forward Kevin Stevens (13 GP), center Ron Francis (12 GP) and center Mario Lemieux (12 GP) with the Pittsburgh Penguins, center Joe Juneau (14 GP) and forward Dimitri Kvartalnov (14 GP)
