Pick

This should be a great game between two of the top teams in the Western Conference, but Vegas is at home and has not lost in regulation so far this season. Both teams have played very well in the defensive zone and are allowing 2.33 goals against per game or fewer. On the other side, the offenses have been solid and the penalty kills have been very good. Vegas has had a few close calls recently, as three of their last four games have gone to overtime, with one of them being the loss. I am going to take Vegas at home, as I can’t go against how they are currently playing.
