Pick

Vegas has been the best team in the NHL to start the season and they look to stay undefeated here. On the other side, Philadelphia has played pretty well to start the year, but they do have two road losses to Dallas and Ottawa. The Golden Knights have played great defense this year, allowing just 1.83 goals against per game, and both goaltenders have been great. Philadelphia has a pretty solid goalie as well with Carter Hart, and I think we could see a lower scoring game here. Take the under in this game.
