Overall the Vegas Golden Knights have had a down year compared to last year’s remarkable run but they still sit in 9th place in the Western Conference and enjoy a solid home ice advantage going 7-3 at T-Mobile this season. The Golden Knights and their fans will be extra ramped up when they host the Capitals on Tuesday – also know as the team that beat Vegas for the Stanley Cup last Spring. Is revenge a dish best served cold?
The Caps have already one-upped the Golden Knights again this season, scoring a 5-2 win at home in October fueled by 2 Alex Ovechkin goals. Overall Washington comes into Tuesday night’s game hot having won 7 of their last 8. The Capitals are right near the top of the Eastern Conference again this season fueled by an offense that has scored 4+ in 6 of the last 7. The Caps have a top 5 scoring offense in the league but Vegas also boasts one of the NHL’s best defenses.
G Braden Holtby is looking for a bounce back game after giving up 6 goals to the Ducks his last start. The Caps are hoping that game was just a hiccup as their net minder had won 5 games prior while allowing a total of just 7 goals. The Golden Knights have put together some so-so offensive numbers lately so that’s the matchup to watch.
Las Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights will lean on their solid home ice advantage to get the W on Tuesday. Vegas has played just two of their last 6 games at home but have gone 3-1 in those contests at T-Mobile. Overall the Golden Knights have scored 4+ in 3 of their last 4 so their offense seems to be clicking at the right time.
The goaltending matchup Tuesday night is a solid one as Marc-Andre Fleury is also on a hot streak in net for the Golden Knights. The crafty vet has won 6 of his last 7 starts with two shutouts thrown in the mix during that span. Fleury did give up 4 goals on 28 shots to Washington in October so shutting them down will be big for his psyche in this game.
