Golden Knights snap two-game skid, top Flames 6-2


Mark Stone had a goal and an assist, Marc-Andre Fleury made 33 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Calgary Flames 6-2 Saturday night.


Tomas Nosek, William Carrier, Paul Stastny, Ryan Reaves and rookie Cody Glass also scored to help Vegas snap a two-game losing streak and remain undefeated at home against the Flames.


Nosek got his third goal of the season after William Carrier broke into the zone from the right side and was stuffed by Rittich, who couldn’t locate the puck after making the save.


Just 33 seconds later, Gaudreau got his third of the season when his shot deflected off Vegas forward William Karlsson’s stick and past Fleury to give the Flames a 2-1 lead.


The Golden Knights seized the momentum when Stastny grabbed a rebound off the board, skated to the slot and fired a wrist shot under Rittich’s pads to push the lead to 4-2.


... Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb, who played in his 400th career game, blocked a shot off his left foot in the first period and went off the ice and to the locker room.
