The Vegas Knights are on their way back home to take on western conference rival, the St. Louis Blues.
The Vegas Golden Knights started the season with a good win against the Seattle Kraken. Before we could get too excited about the season though, tragedy struck. While facing pacific division rival, the Los Angeles Kings, the Knights faced multiple injuries to some of their best players. After a terrible loss, and six days off, the Knights are officially back and ready to rebound themselves against the Blues.
Looking ahead to tonight, the Knights are going to be without: Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty, Mattias Janmark, and Alex Tuch. However, the St. Louis Blues are going to be without wing, Pavel Buchnevich after receiving a two-game suspension from the NHL. Still, the Knights are without four key players compared to one. That definitely gives the Blues the advantage.
So with the Knights having multiple players out, what are the projected lines for the game tonight? This is where the good news comes into play. The Knights, although they lost multiple players, look to be getting William Carrier, Nicolas Roy, and Brett Howden, back. So with that being said, let’s take a look at the projected lines for tonight.
Evgenii Dadonov-Chandler Stephenson-Nic Roy
Jonathan Marchessault-William Karlsson-Reilly Smith
Peyton Krebs-Nolan Patrick-Keegan Kolesar
William Carrier-Jake Leschyshyn-Brett Howden
Alec Martinez-Alex Pietrangelo
Brayden McNabb-Shea Theodore
Nicolas Hague-Zach Whitecloud
It was confirmed this afternoon by head coach, Pete DoBoer, that Robin Lehner was going to be getting the start tonight. Although that wasn’t much of a surprise, it’s nice to see that Lehner is still the top goalie for them. After a rough outing against the Kings, it shows that the Knights organization still has faith in him.
