Sharks become third-fastest franchise in NHL history to 1,000 wins

The Sharks' 3-2 win in Vegas on Thursday night carried a little bit more significance than normal. That's because it was the 1,000th victory in franchise history.

San Jose is the 22nd NHL franchise to reach 1,000 wins, but it got there in the third-fewest number of games.
