Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights enter this Wednesday’s matchup with a 12-6-1 record that ranks the NHL’s newest franchise 2nd in the Pacific Division, thanks to the 25 points the Golden Knights have accumulated on the year. With that 25 point tally, the Knights are just 1-point away from tying the Los Angeles Kings at the top of the division. Also, Vegas has a slight 1-point lead over the 3rd place Calgary Flames. It’s safe to say that things are getting heated at the top of the Pacific, but considering that the Golden Knights are coming off a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings, Vegas has a very good chance of remaining at the top of the division for a longtime to come. The Golden Knights enter this evening’s contest riding a two game winning streak.
Surprisingly enough, the online hockey betting lines are having a hard time sizing up this contest as the lines have yet to come out for this matchup. Both teams rank near the top of the Pacific Division but there’s no question that the Golden Knights are having a better year since they rank 2 whole spots ahead of the Ducks in the Pacific and have 2 more points on the season. That could all change tonight if Vegas suffers a setback. To help pull out a road win, the Golden Knights will turn to leading goal-scorer James Neal and David Perron – who leads the team in both points and assists.
The Ducks swim into this West Coast pairing with a 10-7-3 record that ranks Anaheim 4th in the Pacific Division with 23 points on the year. The Vancouver Canucks are also sitting on 23 points on the year so Anaheim needs to make sure that they come out on the winning side this evening. Anaheim also enters this evening’s pairing riding a winning streak, albeit a three game one, after picking up consecutive wins over the Boston Bruins, Florida Panthers and San Jose Sharks. Online sports betting fans tuning in for this matchup will want to keep an eye out for Rickard Rakell who leads Anaheim in points with 18 on the season as well as goals (8).
