Two Pacific division teams will battle it out in their season finale. We have the Vegas Golden Knights, who are back in the playoffs for their second ever season and the Los Angeles Kings are looking to regroup in the offseason after a terrible 2018-2019.
These teams have met four times this season. They have split these games winning 2 games each.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights are looking to make another deep run in the playoffs after falling just short last season. As it stands, they are the 6th seed in the West but can fall as far as the 7th seed if they do not take care of business against the Kings.
The Golden Knights have an average offense at best, yet they still continue to win games. Averaging 3 goals a game is 13th in the NHL, but with Jonathan Marchessault only having 54 points, their offense is going to have to improve considerably if they want to make it back to the finals.
The defense has been the strong point for the Golden Knights and is the reason their season has been successful. They only allow 2.8 goals, which is 10th in the NHL. Facing a terrible offensive club will give the Vegas defenders an edge and they will shut down the Kings attack.
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings just want the season to end, especially because they are last in the Western Conference.
As I mentioned, the Kings are one of the worst scoring teams. They average 2.4 goals per game, which is 30th in the NHL. Point leader, Anze Kopitar, will need to carry the Kings if they are to win this last game in front of their fans.
The defense is not much better than the offense and is why they lose so many games. Allowing 3.2 goals per game is good for 21st in the league. Just in their five games, they have allowed an average of 4.2 goal per game, so I really have no faith they can stop a playoff team from running up the scoreboard.
