Defense guided the game 5 win when Vancouver toppled Vegas 2-1. That was the name of the game again on Thursday in a 4-0 win as Thatcher Demko has stepped in beautifully for Jakob Markstrom.
Markstrom is questionable again on Friday (groin) but Demko has allowed just one goal the last two games and while facing a bevy of shots – 43 in game five and 48 in game six.
Vegas Golden Knights

Goaltender play is always important to watch on a back-to-back. You have to think Demko’s production dips a bit after facing 48 shots on Thursday night.
