LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Vegas Golden Knights know the importance of winning at home.Last season they went 29-10-2 on home ice during the regular season Chicago Blackhawks Hats Authentic , en route to their remarkable run to the Stanley Cup Final.This year, once again, the defending Western Conference champions are taking advantage of the atmosphere inside T-Mobile Arena.Alex Tuch got his 10th goal of the season and the Golden Knights won their fifth straight at home, beating the Dallas Stars 4-2 Sunday night. Vegas improved to 10-3-1 at home.“It doesn’t feel common because it’s so loud and the building is unbelievable and I’ve never seen nothing like this,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “I’ve been in the NHL quite a long time — this is incredible. Every game we play the crowd just gets behind us and they really lift our hockey team.”Ryan Carpenter, William Karlsson and Reilly Smith also scored, while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 22 shots.Tuch became the fifth Golden Knights player to reach double figures in goals just before the end of the second period, when he chopped a loose puck just past defenseman Miro Heiskanen’s skate and through goaltender Ben Bishop’s five-hole to give the Golden Knights a 3-1 lead.“It’s a 20-man effort, 20-man win, we need it every night for 60 full minutes and I thought we had it tonight,” Tuch said. “Everyone is working hard and if you made a mistake — I made plenty out there tonight — but you know what, you forget about it, you go out and give a better shift the next time around. That’s what (Gallant) is all about and that’s what this organization is all about. And I thought all 20 guys played hard and had a lot of heart tonight.”The Golden Knights and Dallas have two of the best penalty kills in the NHL, both coming into the game ranked in the top five.For the second time in four games the Golden Knights were faced with killing an extended penalty, as Shea Theodore was sent to the box for high sticking with Vegas leading 3-2. Fleury stopped all three shots during the four-minute double-minor, while Nate Schmidt had two takeaways and Brayden McNabb blocked another shot.“That was the game,” Gallant said. “We were up by a goal with a double-minor to kill late in the hockey game and I don’t know if they really got a chance, maybe one or two Custom Chicago Blackhawks Jerseys , but I thought our PK was outstanding when it had to be. Sure, they got two (power play) goals earlier in the game but when they really had to step up, they did an unbelievable job and that was real key for us winning.”The Stars, who came into the game ranked 21st on the power play, were 2 for 4 with an extra man.Martin Hanzal and Esa Lindell scored for Dallas, and Bishop made 24 saves. The Stars snapped a four-game winning streak.“In this league you need a top-notch effort to have a chance in this league every night,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said. “I thought that they outcompeted us tonight.”After Hanzal gave Dallas a 1-0 lead early in the first period, Vegas tied the game when Carpenter gathered the loose puck from a rebound and fired it into the open net near the end of the first. It was the second straight game the Golden Knights’ often-quiet third line scored, providing balance to a team that ranks 17th in the league with 2.97 goals per game.The Golden Knights scored a pair of even-strength goals immediately following power-play opportunities in the second period.Karlsson lasered the puck through Bishop’s pads 3 seconds after the Stars killed off an interference penalty on Hanzal, and Tuch’s game-winner came nine seconds after Brett Ritchie left the box for roughing. Smith’s empty-net goal with 28 seconds left provided the final margin.The Golden Knights now take an 8-2 win streak on the road for a four-game road trip through New York, New Jersey and Columbus.NOTES: Karlsson has scored a goal in five of his last eight games. … Vegas leads the NHL with 887 hits, but were outhit by the Stars, 31-23. … In his first two games back on the ice, Hanzal, who had spinal fusion surgery in March and made his season debut on Friday, is 13 for 21 (61.9 percent) from the faceoff circle in 26:06 of ice time. … Vegas, which was 1 for 5 with a man advantage, has scored a power-play goal in 12 of its last 17 games. … Dallas and Vegas are now tied with 35 points and sit No. 1 and No. 2 in the wild-card spots , respectively.UP NEXTDallas: Continues its four-game trip at Anaheim on Wednesday night.Vegas: Opens a four-game trip at the New York Islanders on Wednesday night. Red Wings general manager Ken Holland has suddenly come to appreciate how valuable first-round draft picks are when a team’s not in playoff contention at the NHL trade deadline.”I’ve been on that on the other side,” Holland said, recalling Detroit’s heydays in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the Red Wings were competing with Dallas, Colorado and New Jersey in vying to add top talent to strengthen their playoff run. ”When those teams made a move, we were aware of it.”The Red Wings were far from that position, sitting in a tie for 12th and five points out of contention, when the trade deadline struck on Monday afternoon. Though Holland wasn’t discounting Detroit’s chances of making a late-season push, he wasn’t exactly dealing from a position of strength.Rather than adding a player, the Red Wings subtracted . They traded established forward Tomas Tartar to the Western Conference-leading Vegas Golden Knights for three draft picks, including a first-round selection.”This wasn’t a rental in this case,” Holland said of Tatar, a three-time 20-goal-scorer with three years left on his contract. ”But the trading of the first-round picks speaks to those teams that have had great years and feel that they’ve got to do something that really impacts their team.”The Golden Knights weren’t the only contender giving up high draft picks on a day 18 trades were completed.Six first-round selections – two of them conditional – were dealt Monday, the most to move on the final day of NHL trading since at least 2008, according to league figures. And no first-rounders had moved on each of the previous two trade-deadline days.San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson attributed the amount of first-rounders dealt to how tight the playoff races are, particularly in the Western Conference. Before games on Monday, six points separated the Sharks, who sit second in the Pacific Division standings Colorado Avalanche T-Shirts Authentic , and Colorado, which was 11th in the West.”It’s supply and demand of those players that can make a difference,” Wilson said after trading a conditional 2019 first-round pick to acquire Buffalo’s Evander Kane . ”Some people would say pricey, but it almost always is pricey at this time of year when you have competitive juices flowing.”The East-leading Tampa Bay Lightning traded a 2018 first-round pick, a conditional 2019 first-rounder and three players to acquire Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller, New York’s second-leading scorer.The Winnipeg Jets gave up a first-round pick to add even more offense to the NHL’s fourth-best scoring team in acquiring Paul Stastny from St. Louis.Nashville parted ways with a first-round pick to land forward Ryan Hartman from Chicago.Those deals don’t include the first-round pick the Rangers acquired as part of the trade that sent Rick Nash to Boston on Sunday. And Pittsburgh gave up a first-round pick last week as part of a three-team trade to add Ottawa’s Derick Brassard.Rangers GM Jeff Gorton was the big winner as far as accumulating top draft picks to help spur an overhaul of New York’s aging roster.”There’s a lot of opportunity to grow as a team and make our team better,” he said. ”I feel like we’re just starting.”The Rangers now have three first-round picks and seven over the first three rounds, leaving Gorton with the option of using some of them in trades.”Whatever it takes,” he said. ”We’re looking forward to it. Having three picks is exciting.”Some executives found the price of parting with a first-round pick too steep, which prevented them from making moves. They included the Columbus Blue Jackets, who gave up a third-round pick and role players in acquiring defenseman Ian Cole from Ottawa and forward Thomas Vanek from Vancouver.”I guess we were out of that competition because we kind of established our position from the start that we don’t want to give up a first-round pick,” GM Jarmo Kekalainen said before noting the Blue Jackets dealt their 2017 first-round pick to Vegas as part of the NHL expansion draft last June.”I can already feel the effects of the one-year hole, I definitely didn’t want to feel the effects of the two-year hole in the depth chart,” Kekalainen added. ”That was a non-starter.”—AP Hockey Writers Larry Lage and Stephen Whyno, sports writers Josh Dubow and Mitch Stacy, and freelance writers Denis P.
