The Las Vegas Golden Knights will take the ice Thursday against the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Qualifying round at 6:30 p.m.
The Golden Knights will be looking to go 2-0 since the restart following a 5-3 win against the Dallas Stars on Monday. The Blues will be looking to improve to 1-1 following a 2-1 loss against the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.
Las Vegas Golden Knights
Marc-Andre Fleury will be in the net for Las Vegas on Thursday. Fleury was able to put together a 27-16-5 record during the season to go with a 2.77 GAA and a .905 save percentage. During the regular season, the Golden Knights were able to score an average of 3.15 goals per game on 34.5 shots a night.
They gave up 50 power plays goals to their opponents with a 76.6 penalty kill percentage. Against a St. Louis team that was tough on the power play all season, skating a man down is going to be key for the Knights in this one.
St. Louis Blues
Jordan Binnington will be between the pipes on Thursday for the Blues. Binnington was 30-13-7 this year with a 2.56 GAA and a .912 save percentage.
St. Louis was able to hold their opponents to an average of just 2.66 goals per game this year while giving up just 30.7 shots a night.
Skating hard on the defensive end of the ice is going to be key if the Blues want to skate away with a win on Thursday.

Free Las Vegas Golden Knights vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction:
I’m liking the total staying under five in this one. With the teams playing on back-to-back days, I think someone is going to have difficulty getting things going. Add the fact that Greiss and Bobrovsky will be in the nets, and I think the game ends as a low scoring affair. New York had a very solid defense the entire season, but they had issues from time to time putting the puck in the net.
I do think the Islanders will wrap this series up on Wednesday, but I think they do it with a low score. My money is on the total staying under five.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Under 5.5
