The Vegas Golden Knights keep on defying the odds. Defeating the Winnipeg Jets, 3-2, for an overtime victory on the road, the NHL’s newest franchise picked up its 34th win on the season. That’s officially the most any expansion team has ever won in its inaugural season. Making the feat even more impressive, the Golden Knights (34-12-4) needed 34 fewer games to surpass the record previously held by the Anaheim Ducks and Florida Panthers, both of whom won 33 games in their first season in 1993-94. Winning, as expected, historically hasn’t come easy to expansion teams in Season No. 1, with the likes of the Los Angeles Kings and Philadelphia Flyers both having won 31 games apiece in 1967-68. Vegas is now tied with the Tampa Bay Lightning for the most wins this season, but holds the league lead in points with 72.
