    mistake?

    "...Dallas (25-17-5) has won six of the last seven meetings with the Ducks, but only one of those victories have come at the Honda Center, a 5-0 win on Nov. 5...."
    (nhl.com)

    This excerpt is from a report I just read, and it includes a mistake. I guess it should be 'has' as we are talking about one victory; one of six victories.

    Am I correct?

    Re: mistake?

    The subject is ‘one’ and the verb ‘have’ doesn’t agree with the subject. I must concur with you: the verb should be 'has'.

    Yes, you're right.
