Reilly Smith leads Vegas with nine goals, William Karlsson has 12 assists and Max Pacioretty has 68 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 89.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 32 goals on 419 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed eight goals on 90 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed four or more goals in five of their last nine games.

Anthony Mantha leads Detroit with 10 goals, Tyler Bertuzzi has 10 assists and Darren Helm has 32 shots on goal.

Jimmy Howard has given up 35 goals on 310 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 30 goals on 275 shots. The Detroit Red Wings have allowed four or more goals in seven of their last 10 games.
The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The Golden Knights are 2-6 in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 8-2 in Golden Knights last 10 games playing on 0 days rest.
The road team has won all four meetings between the Vegas Golden Knights and Detroit Red Wings, and the road team should be heavily favored here as well. The problem is the Vegas Golden Knights are on the end of a back to back and those defensive issues seem to be creeping in again during this losing stretch. The Detroit Red Wings have issues of their own, but at least they're at home and have the rest advantage. I'm just not into laying crazy juice with teams that are in a losing stretch or have defensive issues, especially when that team is on the end of a back to back and on the road. It's Red Wings or pass for me.
