1. Mar. 9, @ Edmonton Oilers
Tonight’s game at Rogers Arena is going to be both captivating and mouthwatering, while holding huge significance down the stretch.
After beating the Calgary Flames on Sunday, the Golden Knights are back atop the Pacific Division with 12 games remaining in the regular season.
They are two points ahead of the Oilers but have also played a game more, placing more importance on tonight’s showdown.
And, given that Edmonton looks to be the biggest challenger to Vegas for the Pacific Division, this contest really could be make or break for both teams.
Should the Golden Knights come out on top, they will start to put some distance between them and the rest of the pack.
However, if the Oilers win they will be tied for first and will still have played a game less which could prove crucial when all is said and done.
Plus, with these two teams set to meet one final time at the end of the month, expect there to be plenty of edge to tonight’s game.
It will be a real litmus test for the Golden Knights later who will need to try and put the shackles on the dynamic duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, who have been on a tear in the NHL all year.
