Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings are smelling blood as they visit Las Vegas on Friday. The team, too, is coming off a loss in their previous outing. But having known how the Golden Knights played in their previous assignments, the Kings are ready to push the hosts against the ropes. After all, Los Angeles is chasing the teams ahead of them in the Pacific Division standings, and one of them is Vegas. The Kings trail the Golden Knights by four points, 59-55, as the race tightens up in the group. There are four more games left in the team’s five-game road trip. A win in Vegas will be crucial for coach Todd McLellan and his squad, especially in their push to seize a playoff spot in the division.

Players to watch: A. Kopitar C (G 14, A 28, PTS 42), V. Arvidsson RW (G 13, A 17, PTS 30), A. Iafallo RW (G 14, A 14, PTS 28).

Vegas Golden Knights

That’s two straight games without a single score for Vegas. Apparently, the one-week break did not solve the Golden Knights’ offensive woes. The team will be coming off a three-game break when they host the Kings on Friday. It remains unknown whether coach Peter DeBoer already has the answer that would unravel his team’s struggles. Despite the recent slump, Vegas has remained at the top 2 spot in the Pacific but the team can’t deny that footsteps are already being heard from the teams that are trying to chase them in the race.

Players to watch: C. Stephenson C (G 12, A 26, PTS 38), J. Marchessault C (G 20, A 13, PTS 33), S. Theodore D (G 8, A 24, PTS 32).
