The Vegas Golden Knights are tonight and are getting ready to take on the Arizona Coyotes. After having about a week off, the Golden Knights are back and ready for some action.

The Golden Knights last game played was Sunday against the San Jose Sharks, and man was that a great team win. Logan Thompson came in and player terrific, Jack Eichel scored his first goal as a Golden Knight, Max Pacioretty got yet another goal. It was simply put, a great team win.

The win not only meant a lot as far as getting back on track, but getting a win against the Sharks made it that much better. The Knights had been struggling against the competing teams in the Pacific division, but being able to get that win Sunday was pretty much a must-win.

I mean, the Vegas Golden Knights are in a stacked pacific division and are going to be in a tough spot for the rest of the year. Finding ways to get in-division wins are going to be key in the Knights success and they went in and did what they needed to and got the win.

So now, let’s look ahead to tonight’s games against the Arizona Coyotes.

Looking ahead to this game, it should be an easy win, but not always. One of the best things about hockey is the fact that any team is beatable. There will never be a team that goes 82-0. It’s never going to happen. Good teams can lose to bad teams, it happens. So they shouldn’t take this game for granite.

The Knights are currently ranked second in the pacific division behind the Flames, with 62 points. Which, in case you are curious, is only one point above the Los Angeles Kings and three points above the Edmonton Oilers. Tonight’s game should give them a chance to add on another two points to their total and hopefully earn some le-way.

So, let’s take a look at what the lines could look like tonight against the Arizona Coyotes.

Vegas Golden Knights Injury Updates

Alec Martinez: Alec Martinez was seen practicing all week with the Golden Knights and was wearing a grey jersey. Although the grey jersey signifies that he should be good to go, we’ve seen him in it before and then hit a lull. Hopefully, that’s not the case and Martinez is back in the lineup tonight against the Coyotes.

Nolan Patrick: Nolan Patrick has been battling an upper-body injury since the hit to his head from Nathan MacKinnon. We’ve seen him skate and practice in a red no-contact jersey this week but it came out yesterday that the Golden Knights were going to be adding him to the IR. That means he will be out for a week or until he’s ready to return.

Robin Lehner: Similar to Martinez, Lehner did in fact practice this week with the Knights, but it was also reported that he needed more time to heal up. Therefore, he will more than likely remain out for the time being and Brossoit/Thompson will continue to man the net.

Zach Whitecloud: Zach Whitecloud should be in the lineup tonight against the Coyotes for the first time in a month. He’s been dealing with a broken foot, but similar to Martinez, was practicing in a grey jersey. All signs point to him being activated tomorrow prior to the game.

Vegas Golden Knights Call-Ups

Jake Leschyshyn: With Nolan Patrick being placed on the IR, the Golden Knights have recalled Jake Leschyshyn from the Henderson Silver Knights to fill up their roster. Leschyshyn likely won’t play, but he is now back up with the team for the time being.
