LAS VEGAS, NV (KXST) - Reilly Smith scored twice and Marc Andre-Fleury looked solid in net as the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-1 in an exihibition game at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta on Thursday night.

It's the lone exhibition before the season restarts for the VGK on Monday against Dallas.

Smith's two first-period goals were all the Knights needed, with Fleury barely tested through the first two periods. He finished the game with 22 saves.

Alex Tuch and Nick Cousins also lit the lamp for Vegas.
