The Vegas Golden Knights are on a hot streak right now. They're not Edmonton-winning-15-games-in-a-row hot, but they're playing good hockey. Winners of six of their last eight, the defending Stanley Cup champions have taken down some solid competition. That includes the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers (twice).

With the return of Adin Hill, Vegas has re-emerged as a Stanley Cup-winning threat. The Knights can claim to have the best goaltending duo in the league, amplified by an incredible forecheck and timely scoring. It's the brand of hockey Bruce Cassidy wants, which is bringing hope back to fans this season.

Given their current circumstances, it's even more impressive that the Golden Knights have ripped off such a streak. Losing your best offensive players would devastate a team of mere mortals. Instead, stars like Jonathan Marchessault have stepped up, making Vegas tough to beat.

But no team is perfect, and there are things Vegas must do to improve their game. After all, winning the Stanley Cup means you're the best regardless of your flaws. Therefore, here are three things the Knights must do to get back on top again.
