We’ve got NHL hockey coming to you Friday night from the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip as the Lightning head to the desert to take on the Golden Knights. Both teams were in action on Wednesday night when the Lightning beat the Avalanche in Colorado and the Golden Knights lost to the Canucks at home. Both games were decided by one goal.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay is currently 2-0-1 on this road trip, winning the last two games at Chicago and Colorado. After Friday’s game, the Lightning head south to take on the Arizona Coyotes to finish off the trip, so a win here on Friday will be important.
The Lightning already look like they’re in mid season form, only losing one game in regulation thus far. Brayden Point has been leading the scoring for the Lightning early this year with 5 goals and 3 assists. I’m guessing since this will be the first game of a back to back, that Tampa’s top goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy will be in net for the Lightning.
Vegas Golden Knights
Well, the people of Las Vegas finally get to see what expansion hockey looks like this year. The Golden Knights are showing no signs whatsoever of making a push for a trip back to the Finals again in their second season.
Vegas has been better at the T-Mobile Arena this year than they have been on the road, but with the way this team has been of late, I think this will be won by the visitors. Marc-Andre Fleury should be between the pipes for the Knights, and when he’s in the crease, you always have a chance for a win.

Free Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Vegas Golden Knights NHL Prediction:
Thank God for the lights out on the Strip, because the Knights haven’t exactly been lighting the lamp out on the ice. Vegas is averaging 2.2 goals per game so far this year.
Take the Lightning to win this game on the road. They’ve won two on this trip already, and it took a shootout for them to lose their first one. Tampa Bay is riding a hot streak right now, and they will be itching to get their first win against the NHL’s newest franchise.
