Anaheim Ducks vs. Vegas Golden Knights Recap JAN 16TH 2021

Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves to move into sole possession of sixth place on the NHL's all-time wins list as the Vegas Golden Knights posted a 5-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas.

The win was the 455th in the career for Fleury, who passed Curtis Joseph (454). Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers (458) sits in fifth place while Martin Brodeur holds the record with 691 wins.

Jonathan Marchessault scored twice -- including once on a penalty shot -- and Reilly Smith had a goal and an assist for Pacific Division leading Vegas. Mark Stone and Alex Tuch also tallied for the Golden Knights.

Jakob Silfverberg and defenseman Korbinian Holzer each scored and John Gibson finished with 36 saves for Anaheim.

Vegas outshot the Ducks, 22-5, in the first period and had a 34-10 edge in shot attempts while building a 2-1 lead.

Holzer gave Anaheim a 1-0 lead at the 8:13 mark with his first goal since April 5 of last season, a span of 34 games. Holzer chipped in a loose puck in front of the crease.

Vegas answered with two goals in just over a five-minute span later in the period, with the first by Stone after he one-timed a loose puck from the right circle following a Ducks turnover for his 16th goal of the season.

Tuch followed with his sixth goal of the season when his shot trickled under Gibson and then was accidentally poked in by Anaheim defenseman Josh Manson.

Smith increased the lead to 3-1 late in the second period with his 15th goal of the season. He stole an outlet pass by Adam Henrique before beating Gibson with a backhand shot.

Marchessault then made it 4-1 midway through the third period when he was awarded a penalty shot after Manson was called for slashing on his breakaway attempt. Marchessault deked Gibson down to the ice and then roofed a wrist shot from the right side of the goal.

Anaheim closed to 4-2 when Silfverberg scored his 14th goal of the season with 5:26 to go. Marchessault finished the scoring by converting into an empty net for his 15th goal of the season.

Max Pacioretty scored seven seconds into overtime as the Vegas Golden Knights completed a sweep of their season-opening two-game series with the Anaheim Ducks with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Pacioretty's one-timer from bottom of the right circle into the top right corner came at the end of a two-on-one break with Mark Stone, who scooped up a loose puck on the opening faceoff of overtime and then broke into the Anaheim zone.

It was the fastest goal to start a period in Vegas team history and came just 89 seconds after teammate William Karlsson had scored to tie the game.

Marc-Andre Fleury had 21 saves for the Golden Knights, who won for the 12th time in 14 games in team history against the Ducks. Max Comtois scored the lone goal for Anaheim, while John Gibson finished with 31 saves.

Vegas, which scored three third-period goals to win Thursday night's season-opener, 5-2, dominated a scoreless first period, outshooting the Ducks, 14-6, including 7-0 in high-danger chances, but they couldn't solve Gibson.

The Ducks then took a 1-0 lead at the 7:45 mark of the second period when Comtois, who came into the season with just seven career goals, scored his third in five periods.

The score came at the end of a three-on-one break after several Vegas players collided and fell down in their own zone. Jacob Larsson then hit a wide-open Comtois with a cross-ice pass from the right circle, and Comtois buried the puck inside the left post.

Vegas nearly tied it with eight seconds left in the period, but Alex Tuch's shot from near the right dot caromed off Gibson's mask.

Fleury kept it a one-goal game early in the third period with a save of a point-blank backhand try by Rickard Rakell, and also a Ryan Getzlaf blast from the slot.

Vegas, which managed just four shots on goal in the first 18 minutes of the period, pulled Fleury with 1:50 remaining and Karlsson tied it with 1:22 left in with a one-timer from the low slot off a feed by Jonathan Marchessault to force overtime.
