While the Vegas Golden Knights have a tough stretch coming up themselves, their revamped lineup should make matters easier. Yes, the Minnesota Wild are playing well now and have an easy slate coming up. However, the Golden Knights are built to win now and should be fine.

Still, Golden Knights fans should keep an eye on the Wild. The table's set for them to make a run, specifically against non-playoff teams. But that's what will make the incoming stretch much more fun.
