Subban Earns First NHL Win In Vegas Knights Victory

Making his first start of the season, Malcolm Subban made 21 saves to earn his first career NHL win and help the Golden Knights become the first team in the expansion era – and third in NHL history – to win four of its first five games in its inaugural season.

* Elias notes that the Golden Knights joined the Canadiens (4-1-0 in 1917-18) and Rangers (4-1-0 in 1926-27) as the only franchises in NHL history to record four wins in the opening five games of their inaugural season.

* The Golden Knights, Canadiens, Rangers and 1967-68 Kings (3-0-2) are the only clubs to collect at least eight points through five games in their inaugural season.

* Subban, who fell 30 seconds shy of a shutout, was selected in the first round (24th overall) by the Bruins in 2012 and played two games with the club before being claimed on waivers by the Golden Knights on Oct. 3.
