The Vegas Golden Knights are back and should be ready for some revenge. The Golden Knights have been shutout back-to-back games for the first time in franchise history. Tonight, the Golden Knights will be taking on the Los Angeles Kings and the Fortress and will look to end their drought.

The Golden Knights lost to the Calgary Flames 0-6, and then again against the Colorado Avalanche 0-2. Now, the reason those loses mean so much is because in order to win the Stanley Cup, you have to be able to beat those types teams. The Knights have not proven that they can.

The Vegas Golden Knights are in a stacked pacific division and are going to be finishing the season without their captain. Finding ways to get in-division wins are going to be key in the Knights success.

So, looking ahead to this game, there is a lot of importance in more ways than one. The Knights are currently ranked second in the pacific division behind the Flames but not much further behind them is the Los Angeles Kings. Additionally, Jack Eichel will be able to get another game under his belt.

Eichel was just activated prior to the game against the Avalanche on Tuesday, and it was clear that he was rusty. In his first shift, he made some very good passes, but he lacked the incentive to pull the trigger on his shot. Which, maybe he just didn’t think he had a angle, but nonetheless, he only had one shot on goal in the game against the Avs.

Looking ahead to tonight’s game, he is going to have some more experience with his line-mates, and have knocked off some of the rust. Hopefully he comes into this game ready to go, and he can pick up his first point as a Vegas Golden Knight.

So, let’s take a look at what the lines could look like tonight against the Los Angeles Kings

Los Angeles Kings vs Vegas Golden Knights Injury Updates

Alec Martinez: Out for tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Kings. The Golden Knights defenseman has missed multiple games due to injury and things aren’t looking great as far as a return this season goes. Reports state that every step forward he takes, he takes two steps back. His return is still not known.

Nolan Patrick: The Vegas Golden Knights forward is more than likely going to be out for a couple games after the hit he suffered from Nathan MacKinnon. Given his injury history, things don’t look good. We don’t have an update from the organization regarding Patrick’s availability, but we can assume that he’ll be out for probably a week or so.

Robin Lehner: The only real update we have regarding Robin Lehner’s availability and return is that he will return sooner rather than later. When that is, we don’t really know. But hopefully it’s not too long. In the meantime, the Knights will run a goalie tandem of Laurent Brossoit and Logan Thompson.
