The Vegas Golden Knights return to the ice in front of the home crowd with an opportunity to sweep the New York Rangers this season. Here’s the best way to make that happen.
When it comes to tonight’s home game against the New York Rangers, the Vegas Golden Knights are entering a favorable matchup. The Rangers have been an inconsistent team so far this season and the Golden Knights have continued to score well, play stout defense, and have been known to be fantastic in being penalty time killers.
This is the final time both these teams will face each other in an interconference game but all signs point to the Golden Knights bouncing back after their tough overtime loss to the New York Islanders on Friday. Tonight will also feature the home game debut of recently acquired forward Chandler Stephenson.
Considering Stephenson scored one goal in his very first game with the team, expect to see him put on a show in front of fans. This will be a catalyst in the best way to beat the Rangers in scoring quickly, furiously, and not easing up in any way, shape, or form by consistently attacking their net.

The Golden Knights have been scoring at will so far this season and it’s one of their biggest strengths of the team. Considering that this was the main strategy used to beat the Rangers when they first faced in Maidson Square Garden, it’s a recipe of success that should be continued tonight.
In the grand scheme of things, the Golden Knights can’t afford to give up as many goals as they have been. They’ve given up at least three goals a game at home in T-Mobile Arena so it’s imperative they come out the gates ready to strike in case they have a shootout on their hands.
If they can get a quick lead over the Rangers, thanks to their defense and the strong play as of late of goaltender Malcolm Subban who will be starting tonight, the Golden Knights can leave this game victorious.
Overall, all eyes will be on the Golden Knights and how they bounce back after a loss to the Islanders. The puck drops at 4:00 PM and looks to be a great one featuring two teams still trying to find their identities this season.
