The Vegas Golden Knights earned perhaps their biggest win of the season last night at T-Mobile Arena, an atmosphere in which Max Pacioretty said was the “loudest he had heard in a long time.”

The Golden Knights have won three straight and are now fourth in the Pacific Division standings and five points behind the first-place Calgary Flames. They have a great opportunity to extend their winning streak as the Philadelphia Flyers, who have lost ten-straight will come to the Fortress Friday night.

Meanwhile, the NHL trade winds are continuing to swirl and both Sportsnet and TSN have a list of potential names that could be traded. Former Golden Knights Nick Holden and Marc-Andre Fleury find themselves on the list alongside one current member of the team.

Vegas: Last night the Golden Knights came back in dramatic fashion and beat the Dallas Stars 5-4. Mark Stone and Alex Pietrangelo both had incredible multi-point nights and Max Pacioretty scored the game-winning goal.

Did Golden Knights fans really cheer when Robin Lehner got pulled in the second period?

The Athletic (Vegas): Mark Stone is one energetic player. How much of an impact does his demeanor have on the rest of the Golden Knights?
