Vegas dominates St. Louis 6-4, one win from West's top seed

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Mark Stone scored the go-ahead goal on a deflection with under 7 minutes left, and the Vegas Golden Knights took a big step toward clinching the top seed in the Western Conference by beating the St. Louis Blues 6-4 in round-robin play Thursday night.

Vegas would be the West's No. 1 seed with a win against Colorado on Saturday. The team that went to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final and was eliminated after a questionable call in Game 7 against San Jose looks capable of winning it all.

"We came into Edmonton wanting to play our best hockey, whether that got us three wins or no wins," Stone said. "So long as we're playing well, we feel confident against anyone."
