LAS VEGAS (AP) — Reilly Smith scored twice and the Vegas Golden Knights defeated the San Jose Sharks 3-1. The victory snapped a two-game skid for Vegas and gave coach Peter DeBoer his 500th career win.

Robin Lehner returned after missing five games and made 16 saves. Noah Gregor scored for San Jose. James Reimer made 10 saves in the first period but didn’t return due to a lower-body injury. Zachary Sawchenko stopped 18 shots over the final two periods.
