Golden Knights Preview
The Vegas Golden Knights are tied in the series, but they can’t be happy with how they played in the Game 4 loss. Vegas recorded 26 shots on goal and went 0-4 on the power play in the loss. Mark Stone has led the Golden Knights this postseason with four goals, seven assists, and 18 shots, while Jack Eichel has added five goals, five assists, and 35 shots on goal. Adin Hill is 1-1 this postseason with a 1.90 goals against average and a .934 save percentage for Vegas.
Edmonton is 10-2 in their last 12 road games and 10-3 in their last 13 Friday games. The over is 26-11 in Edmonton’s last 37 road games. Vegas is 6-2 in their last 8 games and 15-5 in their last 20 home games. The under is 4-1 in Vegas’ last 5 games. Edmonton is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Vegas.
These two teams come into this series looking to take a commanding 3-2 lead, but each team has played inconsistently so far in this series. Edmonton will be missing Darnell Nurse, while Vegas will be without Alex Pietrangelo due to suspensions. Edmonton is the more talented team in this matchup, but can they play sound defense and get decent goaltending again? I think we are going to see another good game from Edmonton and I am taking them to get the road win.
