The Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche meet Saturday in NHL action at the Ball Arena.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 18.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 17 goals, Mark Stone has 27 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 93 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 84 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up 18 goals on 177 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 47 goals on 643 shots.
The Colorado Avalanche look for a win after winning eight of their last nine games. The Colorado Avalanche are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 23.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Mikko Rantanen leads Colorado with 19 goals, Nathan MacKinnon has 25 assists and Nazem Kadri has 108 shots on goal. Defensively, the Colorado Avalanche are allowing 2.2 goals per game and are killing 87.5 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Golden Knights are 10-2 in their last 12 Saturday games and 45-19 in their last 64 overall. The Avalanche are 7-0 in their last 7 home games and 8-1 in their last 9 overall. The over is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 overall. The over is 6-0 in Avalanche last 6 overall. The Golden Knights are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Colorado and 3-7 in the last 10 meetings. The underdog is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
The Colorado Avalanche should be the favorites at home given how they've played over the last few weeks and the fact they just beat the snot out of Vegas on Thursday. The Avalanche have won three of the five meetings against the Golden Knights this season overall. However, the Vegas Golden Knights are still a team we don't get these prices with often and you're talking about the sixth most profitable team in the sport currently. Even with the Avalanche on a tear right now, Vegas has still earned more money this season. Give me the plus money.
