The Vegas Golden Knights can’t seem to go a full week without making more history.
With a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday, the Golden Knights earned the first playoff series win in franchise history—and did it with a clean sweep no less. Not only that but they became the first team in the NHL, NBA or MLB to sweep a best-of-seven in their inaugural season.
The lone goal was courtesy of former Kings blueliner Brayden McNabb, but the story of the game, and the series as a whole, was Marc-Andre Fleury. The star netminder stopped all 31 shots he faced Tuesday and 127 of the 130 total shots he saw in the four-game series.
Vegas now moves on to face either the San Jose Sharks or Anaheim Ducks in the second round—the Sharks are currently up 3-0 in that series—but before that happens they’ll have a few days to celebrate.
Here is some reaction to the team’s latest accomplishment.
