Golden Knights vs Penguins: Injuries, Lines and More
The Vegas Golden Knights will be looking to bounce back from last nights loss against the Buffalo Sabres with a win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Vegas Golden Knights are on the road and are playing in back-to-back games. After playing in Buffalo last night, they headed for Pittsburgh and got ready for tonight’s game.
The Vegas Golden Knights lost to the Buffalo Sabres last night 3-1. In a game that was pretty, well, it wasn’t great, the Knights will without a doubt be looking to bounce back and get a win tonight over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Now, if they were unable to beat the Buffalo Sabres last night, I for one, don’t have much faith in the Knights going into tonight’s game. I feel it’s a consensus around the league that the Penguins are a much better team than the Sabres. Now, they will not only be facing the Penguins having lost to the Sabres, but they are going on no rest.
Unfortunately, the losses this team has obtained over the last couple weeks has really got the Knights going in the wrong direction. But, getting wins like these are going to be very important.
So, with that being said, the Knights should be coming out fired up and ready to get this win against the Penguins. I don’t expect they enjoyed losing to the Sabres last night, so that should give them a push to play well.
So, looking at tonight’s game, what will the lines look like?
Max Pacioretty-Jack Eichel-Jonathan Marchessault
Michael Amadio-William Karlsson-Evgenii Dadonov
William Carrier-Chandler Stephenson-Nicolas Roy
Jonas Rondbjerg-Jake Leschyshyn-Keegan Kolesar
Nicolas Hague-Alex Pietrangelo
Shea Theodore-Zach Whitecloud
Ben Hutton-Dylan Coghlan
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 going to get back sooner rather than later, but Pete DeBoer has stated multiple times that Martinez is not ready to return.
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.
Mattias Janmark: Mattias Janmark will miss some time after leaving the game early against the Coyotes. I’d assume that the injury he is dealing with has to do with the hit he received from Ritchie on Friday.
Brayden McNabb: Brayden McNabb was recently placed on IR after leaving early against the Bruins. More than likely he is going out for a week or two while he recovers. But, in his absence, he will have players ready to take his spot.
