(TSX / STATS) -- LAS VEGAS -- Coach Gerard Gallant showed slight amazement when informed his Vegas Golden Knights are only the second NHL franchise in history to win five of its first six games, joining the 1917-18 Montreal Canadiens.

"I didn't know that. I guess we're in some pretty good company," Gallant said with a smile after the Golden Knights prevailed 5-4 in overtime over the Sabres. Buffalo scored three goals in the last 10 minutes of the third period to force OT.

"I think this team is better than what people expected. After the expansion draft, I looked at our team and I was very impressed. Even our so-called bottom six guys are competitive guys who work hard every night. There's not a lot of pressure on us being an expansion team. They're having a lot of fun."
