(TSX / STATS) -- LAS VEGAS -- The Vegas Golden Knights tied an NHL record for a team in its inaugural season with its eighth straight home win on Friday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena. But head coach Gerard Gallant was the first to admit the 5-4 overtime victory over San Jose wasn't one of his team's better efforts.

"Tonight, it looked like we didn't have any legs," Gallant said after his team blew a 4-1 second period lead. "We were on the wrong side of the puck a lot tonight, and we were having a tough night. Again, we found some ways to score some goals, and we found a way to win."

Jonathan Marchessault jammed in a shot during a scrum on the left side of the net at 1:21 of overtime to give the Pacific Division-leading Golden Knights (14-6-1) the victory, tying the NHL record for most consecutive wins by a team in an inaugural season set by the Toronto Arenas in 1917-18.
