With Adin Hill out due to an injury, the Vegas Golden Knights called up Jiri Patera from the minors. The Czech goalie had the daunting task of taking on a red-hot Nashville Predators team on Tuesday. While he did everything he could to hold off the Predators, Vegas lost in overtime, 5-4.

Still, the Golden Knights are back in third in the Pacific Division with 88 points. The defending champions are getting back to their fundamentals at the right time, making them a dangerous playoff team once again.
