Vegas Golden Knights

The Vegas Golden Knights continue to reign supreme in the Pacific Division, and their return inside the rink on Tuesday was a proof of how dominant they are. The masterful performance extended the team’s winning streak to three as they inch closer to the 60-point mark in just 47 games played. Coach Peter DeBoer said the success is just a result of his team’s “great commitment” to winning. The Golden Knights held Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl in check as the team’s outstanding defense led to easy points on the other. And as they play their second road game in as many nights, DeBoer hopes his team continues to keep its foot on the gas pedal. 

Players to watch: C. Stephenson C (G 12, A 26, PTS 38), J. Marchessault C (G 20, A 12, PTS 32), S. Theodore D (G 8, A 23, PTS 31).

Calgary Flames

The Flames may be fourth in the Pacific, but they should not be taken for granted. After all, the team has the second-best winning percentage in the division, trailing just the Golden Knights. The COVID-19 outbreak has obviously affected the team’s campaign in the first half of the season. Now, they will be forced to play 40 games in 80 days. But the Flames are unbothered as they believe they are still on track to take the higher spots in the team standings. Calgary is scheduled to play seven games in the next 13 days starting at home against the Golden Knights. This will be their first game since the break, therefore, they know the magnitude of such a matchup, especially that it is against the top team in their division. 

Players to watch: J. Gaudreau LW (G 18, A 36, PTS 54), M. Tkachuk LW (G 20, A 25, PTS 45), E. Lindholm C (G 15, A 22, PTS 37).
