LOS ANGELES — Max Pacioretty and Tomas Nosek each had a goal and two assists, Marc-Andre Fleury made 21 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Los Angeles Kings 6-2 on Wednesday night. Fleury got his 485th win, breaking a tie with Ed Belfour for fourth place in NHL history. Alex Tuch, Chandler Stephenson, Mark Stone and Alex Pietrangelo also scored for the Golden Knights, who have won four straight. They went 6-2-0 in the eight-game season series against Los Angeles. Trevor Moore scored twice in his first multigoal game for the Kings, who have lost nine of 12. Jonathan Quick was replaced after allowing three goals on eight shots in the first period, and Cal Petersen made 21 saves in relief. Picking up where they left off in a 4-2 win over the Kings on Monday, the Golden Knights highlighted their speed and transition play to take a 1-0 lead 7:18 into the game. Nosek kept the puck during a 2-on-1 rush to beat Quick with a wrist shot to the near post from the right circle, scoring his eighth goal. Tuch made it 2-0 at 11:04 in nearly identical fashion, beating Quick to his glove side with a wrist shot off the rush with just under 9 minutes left in the opening period.. The Kings cut it to 2-1 with 6:22 remaining when Moore scored on a power play, but Quick misplayed Pacioretty’s dump in from outside the blue line to put the Golden Knights back up 3-1 less than two minutes later. Stephenson made it 4-1 with 4:13 left in the second, scoring on a breakaway set up by Pacioretty’s clever tip pass at the blue line. Moore got the Kings back within 4-2 with 1:38 to go in the middle period when Kempe found him with a stretch pass to set up a 2-on-1 rush. Stone buried a one-timer from Pacioretty to put the Golden Knights up 5-2 at 5:30 of the third. Pietrangelo made it 6-2 at 10:53 when his shot took an awkward deflection off Brendan Lemieux’s stick. CLOSING IN Fleury needs four more wins to tie Roberto Luongo’s 489 for third place in NHL history. GOOD START Mattias Janmark had an assist in his first game for Vegas after being acquired from Chicago in a trade Monday. He was a plus-two in 15:25, playing on the third line with Nosek and Tuch. UP NEXT Golden Knights: At Anaheim on Friday. Kings: At Colorado on Friday. ___ More AP NHL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dan Greenspan, The Associated Press
NEW DELHI — India reported more than 200,000 new coronavirus cases Thursday, skyrocketing past 14 million overall as an intensifying outbreak puts a grim weight on its fragile health care system. In the capital, New Delhi, more than a dozen hotels and wedding banquet halls were ordered to be converted into COVID-19 centres attached to hospitals. “The surge is alarming,” said S.K. Sarin, a government health expert in New Delhi. The bustle of India's biggest city and financial capital, Mumbai, ebbed under lockdown-like curbs to curb the spread of the virus. The action imposed by worst-hit Maharashtra state Wednesday night closed most industries, businesses and public places and limits the movement of people for 15 days, but didn’t stop train and air services. In recent days, migrant workers hauling backpacks have swarmed overcrowded trains leaving Mumbai, an exodus among panic-stricken day labourers. In addition to the 200,739 new cases of infection, the Health Ministry also reported 1,038 fatalities from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, taking deaths to 173,123 since the pandemic started last year. India's total cases are second behind the United States and its deaths are fourth behind the U.S., Brazil and Mexico. The actual numbers may be much higher with limited testing among India's nearly 1.4 billion people. Shahid Jamil, a virologist, said the recent local and state elections with massive political rallies and a major Hindu festival with hundreds of thousands of devotees bathing in the Ganges river in the northern city of Haridwar were super-spreader events. India is ramping up its vaccination drive. The Health Ministry said the total vaccinations crossed 114 million with more than 3 million doses administered on Wednesday. Hospitals in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and several others state were overwhelmed with patients with several hospitals reporting shortage of oxygen cylinders. Cremation and burial grounds in the worst-hit area also were finding it difficult to cope with the increasing number of bodies arriving for last rites, Indian media reports said. Imran Sheikh, a resident of the western city of Pune, said hospital authorities asked him to arrange for an oxygen gas cylinder for his relative undergoing COVID-19 treatment. New Delhi and dozens of other cities and towns imposed night curfews as they battled an infection rate that almost doubled within 11 days. When infections began plummeting in India in September, many concluded the worst had passed. Masks and social distancing were abandoned. When cases began rising again in February, authorities were left scrambling. Ashok Sharma, The Associated Press

DENVER — Nikola Jokic had 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his 15th triple-double of the season to lead the Denver Nuggets over the Miami Heat 123-106 on Wednesday night. Michael Porter Jr. added 25 points and 10 rebounds for the Nuggets. Six Denver players scored in double figures in the team's first game without Jamal Murray, who is out for the rest of the season. Murray was hurt in the final minute of Monday’s loss at Golden State when he planted his left foot to go up for a layup. An MRI confirmed an ACL tear and dealt Denver’s title hopes a serious blow. “Jamal’s devastated, understandably so,” coach Michael Malone said before the game. “I think the team is also a little. We understand the importance of Jamal Murray. We’re a better team when Jamal’s healthy.” Jimmy Butler had 13 points and nine assists for the Heat a night after he rolled his right ankle in a loss at Phoenix. Bam Adebayo led Miami with 21 points and Kendrick Nunn added 16 points. The Nuggets led by 11 at halftime and stretched it to 15 late in the third quarter. JaMychal Green and P.J. Dozier made 3-pointers early in the fourth to open up a 20-point lead. Green finished with 17 points, Aaron Gordon added 16 points and Dozier scored 15. TIP-INS Heat: G Goran Dragic was unavailable so he could rest with Miami playing on consecutive nights. “This situation is just something we want to monitor and be smart about,” coach Erik Spoelstra said before the game. “He’s feeling great. Our schedule is pretty busy, and we think this will help.” ... G Victor Oladipo (right knee soreness) is not on the road trip. Nuggets: G Shaquille Harrison was inactive for the fourth straight game due to health and safety protocols. ... Denver is 10-2 in its last 12 home games after starting the season 9-8 at Ball Arena. WEIGHING THE OPTIONS Malone was asked before the game about the possibility the team will sign guard Austin Rivers to a 10-day contract. Malone said it will be difficult to integrate a new player with just 17 games left in the regular season. “There’s not a lot of practice time, because it seems like we play every day, every other day,” he said. “It makes it challenging to bring anybody in at this point.” UP NEXT Heat: At Minnesota on Friday to wrap up a four-game trip.
