Former B's coach Cassidy wins; Boston's home streak ends

BOSTON (AP) The Vegas Golden Knights made former Boston coach Bruce Cassidy's return a success on Reilly Smith's score in the fifth round of the shootout, beating the Bruins 4-3 to end their NHL-record for home victories to open a season at 14 games on Monday night.

The 57-year-old Cassidy was fired by Boston following 5 1/2 seasons in June after the Bruins were eliminated by Carolina in the opening round of the playoffs.

Eight days after he was let go, he was hired by Vegas.
