Free Las Vegas Golden Knights vs. Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Prediction:
There isn’t a whole lot separating these two teams when it comes to the numbers other than penalty minutes. The Golden Knights spend an average of 107 minutes in the box per game while Pittsburgh sits for 58.
That being said, Las Vegas has been impressive while skating a man down this season.
I don’t see the Stars being too much competition on Friday, but still, the Penguins are playing two games in as many days. I like Las Vegas getting a win on the road here.
