ST PAUL, Minn. — Alex Pietrangelo scored at 1:53 of overtime, giving the Vegas Golden Knights a 3-2 victory after another late rally by the Minnesota Wild. Alex Tuch set up Pietrangelo with a pass across the slot. 

That helped the West Division-leading Golden Knights win for the first time in four games at Minnesota this season. 

Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury took over sole possession of the No. 3 spot on the NHL's career wins list with No. 490.
