PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins are doing just fine so far without injured stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
Drew O’Connor scored his first NHL goal, Danton Heinen got his third in three games and Pittsburgh tallied four times in the first period to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2 in its home opener Saturday night.
Marc-Andre Fleury was the face of the Golden Knights franchise, won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's best goaltender and received assurances from Vegas owner Bill Foley that he'd retire there.
So, naturally, he was surprised to find out he'd been traded to Chicago.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Vegas Golden Knights are no longer the NHL’s shiny new toy.
That honor now belongs to the expansion Seattle Kraken.

Lankinen had been held out since Friday. His absence doesn’t necessarily mean he tested positive for COVID-19.
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Kevin Lankinen and forward Mike Hardman were held out of practice Friday because of the NHL's COVID-19 protocol.

MONTREAL (AP) — Vegas goalie Robin Lehner took a rather unconventional method in getting fired up upon being informed he was getting the start in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup semifinal series against the Montreal Canadiens.
MONTREAL (AP) — Marc-Andre Fleury was so upbeat, the Vegas goalie laughed off a question about his costly late-game flub.
The Golden Knights might be well-served to do the same after finding themselves in the all too familiar position of facing adversity during a postseason run in which they’ve now trailed in all three series.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens vowed to adapt after looking out of sync in the first game of their Stanley Cup semifinal series with the Vegas Golden Knights.

DENVER (AP) — Mikko Rantanen found himself in the middle of an on-ice swarm from teammates after scoring the winner.
Wonderful and all, but he wanted to make sure the real star of the show received his fair share of the credit, too — goaltender Philipp Grubauer.
DENVER (AP) — On one end of the ice will be Philipp Grubauer, a recently named Vezina Trophy finalist.
At the other end will be Marc-Andre Fleury, who's up for the same award.
Now that's quite a goaltender face-off for Game 2 on Wednesday in a second-round series between Colorado and Vegas.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Mattias Janmark had scored just one goal since being acquired by Vegas at the trade deadline from Chicago.

The Vegas Golden Knights stuck to a true rotation for their goaltenders down the stretch of the season, alternating Marc-Andre Fleury without much dropoff in performance to Robin Lehner.
Keeping the 36-year-old Fleury fresh has proven to be a winning strategy for coach Peter DeBoer, who has watched the three-time Stanley Cup champion stop 63 of 65 shots on goal for the Minnesota Wild over the first two games of this first round West Division series that's tied at 1-1.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Vegas Golden Knights hadn’t faced a 2-0 deficit in their first eight playoff series since joining the league in 2017.
