BIG AL's RED-HOT (17-7) NHL CONF GAME OF THE MONTH
Vegas Golden Knights (51-29-9) at Dallas Stars (48-32-8)
Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 8:00 pm
At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Vegas Golden Knights over the Dallas Stars. The Knights played probably their best game on Wednesday, but came up on the short end of a 3-2 overtime final, falling behind 2-1 in the series. Their 40 shots on goal was the most by either team in this series and the 23 they allowed to the Stars was the lowest such number in the three games as well. The key for Vegas tonight therefore is to not panic and to just keep doing what its been doing. There's no doubt the Knights have really benefited in the last two games from the return of enforcing right winger Ryan Reaves, who missed the first game with a suspension carried over from the Colorado series. The only player that's going to miss tonight for Vegas is forward Tomas Nosek while the Stars have several players (six at last count) who will be unavailable due to various ailments. The Knights are 26-14 in their last 40 games when revenging a loss to an opponent, while Dallas has won just four of 13 off an upset victory. Take Vegas. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
