The Vegas Golden Knights got their first win on this road trip last night after a Robin Lehner shutout. Can they keep it going tonight in North Carolina?
The Vegas Golden Knights, who have been on quite the drought over the last couple weeks. After losing to the Blackhawks, Maple Leafs, and Predators, they went to D.C. to try and make a statement and a statement they made.
After a great shutout performance by goalie, Robin Lehner, the Knights were able to walk away with the 1-0 win. However, the job is not done. In fact, it’s only begun because it only get’s harder from here. However, we’re here to talk about the Carolina Hurricanes game, so we’ll stay on that topic.
The Vegas Golden Knights, who have found a way to win back-to-back games for the first time in what seems like forever, are going to look to make it three in a row against the Hurricanes tonight.
After the win against the Capitals yesterday, the Knights have changed their record in the last five from 2-3 to 3-2. However, is that good enough to beat the Hurricanes who’ve been deemed a top team in the NHL this season?
The Carolina Hurricanes have won two of their last five games. With multiple high scoring games, the Hurricanes haven’t exactly dominated like they were earlier on in the season. I mean for awhile there the Hurricanes were the team to beat.
Anyways, before getting back to that point, let’s take a look at what the lineup’s could look like tonight.
Mark Stone-Chandler Stephenson-Evgenii Dadonov
Mattias Janmark-William Karlsson-Jonathan Marchessault
William Carrier-Nicolas Roy-Keegan Kolesar
Michael Amadio-Brett Howden-Nolan Patrick
Nicolas Hague-Alex Pietrangelo
Brayden McNabb-Shea Theodore
Ben Hutton-Dylan Coghlan
The Vegas Golden Knights have a couple different lineup options to choose from tonight. With lots of big name players out, they will have to fill some of those voids which gives them lots of opportunities.
When facing the Hurricanes, you are going to have to play a heavy puck control game. With so many elite playmakers and scorers on the other side, you need to keep the puck on the Knights’ sticks if you want to win.
