NHL Online Betting Odds:
The Preds step into this evening’s matchup sporting a 29-18-4 record that ranks them 2nd in the Central Division. That record grants Nashville 62 points on the season, placing them just two shy of the division leading Winnipeg Jets. Although the Preds are right on Winnipeg’s tail, Nashville has created some leeway between them and the 3rd seeded Minnesota Wild. Right now Nashville owns a 9 point lead over Minnesota, so it’s clear the club has been having a pretty successful season. Nevertheless, Nashville will be looking to snag a win on the road this Wednesday night. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear tonight’s game will not be an easy win. Right now the Golden Knights rank 13th in scoring and 5th in goals allowed. For comparison, the Preds come in with the 12th best scoring offense in the league and the 2nd best defense. All in all Nashville has a decent statistical edge over the Golden Knights.
Players to Watch: Ryan Johansen (8 G, 34 A, 42 PTS), Mattias Ekholm (6 G, 31 A, 37 PTS.), and Roman Josi (6 G, 31 A, 37 PTS.).
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights enter tonight’s action flashing a 29-18-4 record that nets them 62 points on the season. That 62 point tally is good enough to rank Vegas 3rd overall in the Pacific Division. However, they’re still pretty far behind the division leading Calgary Flames, who have already racked an astounding 71 points on the season. But with a10 point lead over the 4th seeded Vancouver Canucks, Vegas isn’t currently at a threat of being usurped.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (16 G, 23 A, 39 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (17 G, 17 A, 35 PTS.), and William Karlsson (16 G, 16 A, 32 PTS.).
