Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights are 2-4 in their last 6 and have now fallen 29-19-4 on the season. That record grants Vegas 62 points on the season, which ranks them 3rd overall in the Pacific Division. Right now the division is led by Calgary Flames, who have racked up a massive 71 points on the year. And even though Vegas is pretty far away from Calgary, they’ve built up a decent within the top 3 of the division. In fact, the Golden Knights’ nearest threat just happens to be the 4th seeded Vancouver Canucks, who have 52 on the year. Granted, Vegas will certainly want to get out of their current rut by snapping their 2 game losing streak. Interestingly enough, tonight’s NHL hockey betting odds aren’t pegging either team as a favorite.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (16 G, 24 A, 40 PTS), Jonathan Marchessault (17 G, 18 A, 35 PTS), and William Karlsson (16 G, 16 A, 32 PTS).
The Hurricanes fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 24-20-6 record that nets them 54 points this season. Unfortunately for Carolina, 54 is not good enough to crack the top 3 in the Metropolitan. It is however, good enough to rank them 5th in the division. And to crack the top 3, Carolina would have to catch up to the Washington Capitals and their 60 points. Will they be able to cover some ground this evening? Well the odds are unsure but the numbers suggest they’ll come up short. Right now Carolina ranks 26th in scoring and 13th in defense. For comparison, Vegas ranks 14th in scoring but 5th overall in defense.
Players to Watch: Sebastian Aho (22 G, 35 A, 57 PTS), Teuvo Teravainen (11 G, 32 A, 43 PTS), and Justin Williams (13 G, 12 A, 25 PTS).
