LAS VEGAS (AP) – Alex Tuch and Vadim Shipachyov made the most of their debuts with the Vegas Golden Knights, each scoring a goal in a 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Sunday.
It was just the seventh career game for Tuch, who played in six games with Minnesota last season, while Shipachyov was making his NHL debut. Both players were recalled from Chicago of the AHL to fill roster spots for the suddenly banged-up Golden Knights.
Also making his Vegas debut was goalie Malcolm Subban, who stopped 21 shots for the win against his former team.

Subban, claimed off waivers Oct. 3 from the Bruins, got the nod when No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day.
Tuch, who had four goals and an assist in three AHL games, poked the puck away from Sean Kuraly, skated past Kevan Miller and beat Boston goalie Tuukka Rask with a shot in the upper left corner to give the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead with 5:21 left in the second period. It was Tuch’s first NHL goal.
