There’s been plenty to talk about regarding both these teams so far this season. The Knights, the talk of the league last year, seem to be enduring a sophomore slump.
The home team, meanwhile, has been in the press for all the wrong reasons lately, although the latest circus may yet prove to be a blessing in disguise. I suppose the silver lining of this matchup, is that someone has to win the game.
Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas has got a bit of the ole regression biting them in the ass so far in 2018-19. Last season they could do no wrong; William Karlsson was on a tear and veteran goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was playing out of his mind en route to a shock Stanley Cup final appearance for the expansion franchise.
‘Lady Luck’ has a way of evening things out though; a team from Las Vegas, of all places, should know that.
Important blueliner Nate Schmidt is suspended for PEDs, Fleury has come back to Earth, as has Karlsson, and offseason sniper acquisition Max Pacioretty hasn’t been doing any sniping.
In all, it’s been ugly for Vegas, but a trip to Canada’s nation’s capital to take on the woebegone Senators franchise might be just the antidote.
The latest episode of Clown College AKA the day-to-day operations of the Ottawa Senators franchise, was when several Sens players were busted slagging their assistant coaches and game-planning, thanks to unknowingly being recorded in an Uber they were taking in Phoenix.
Ethical implications aside – of which there are many – it certainly had to the potential to destabilise the locker room.
If last game is any indication, it’s done just the opposite. It’s almost as if the players are ‘playing guilty’ or something, because they were on fire in a 7-3 victory over New Jersey.
This might cause everyone in the organization (including especially the owner Eugene Melnyk, if you ask any eastern Ontarians) to have a harsh look in the mirror, and the performances might rally as a result.
It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see the Sens’ recent prolific goal scoring continue at home on Thursday night, thanks in part to this crisis.

Free Golden Knights vs. Ottawa Senators NHL Prediction:
I already thought the Senators were playing a little above their heads so far this year. Some were projecting them to be historically bad after they offloaded franchise cornerstone Erik Karlsson in the off-season, but with young pieces like Dylan DeMelo, lightning bolt Alex Formenton, Brady Tkachuk and Thomas Chabot, the Sens of the future have promise.
The recent Uber fiasco, though, wasn’t a good look for anyone. Yet, everyone vents about their work situation, and the bullshit-ness of the situation on the part of the Uber driver seems to be galvanizing the team to reach a higher gear. If that, admittedly very recent, trend continues, Ottawa should grab a home win over reeling Vegas.
