Golden Knights vs Flames Prediction Breakdown

Neither one of these teams has had a ton of success recently, but Calgary has played slightly better and will be at home. The Flames are 3-3-1 at home, while Vegas is 6-3-1 on the road. Vegas started the season playing great hockey, but they have struggled over the last couple of weeks. The Golden Knights are still playing excellent defense and they are only allowing 2.38 goals against per game. Despite the Golden Knights struggles, I like them in this game. They are still one of the best teams in the NHL and we are getting them at a solid price. Take Vegas here.
