Golden Knights look for season sweep
The Vegas Golden Knights snapped their three-game losing streak on Sunday when they defeated the New Jersey Devils 3-2 at the Prudential Center in Newark.
The road trip now continues on Tuesday at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus when the Golden Knights take on the Blue Jackets.
The two teams met earlier in the campaign in January at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with the hosts winning 6-3. Vegas leads the San Jose Sharks by 10 points in the Pacific Division with a game in hand.
The Golden Knights continue on to play the Red Wings and Sabres in Detroit and Buffalo later in the week before concluding their road swing against the Flyers in Philadelphia on Monday.
The Sharks, 10/1 to win the Pacific Division, are less worried about Vegas, but rather the Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings who are a point and two points back respectively in the Division.
All three teams have played 66 games with 16 left to go in the season. San Jose was doubled up by the Blue Jackets at the SAP Center on Sunday and now welcome in the slumping St. Louis Blues on Thursday.
Anaheim meanwhile will host the Washington Capitals on Tuesday at the Honda Center. The Ducks are 6-2-2 in their last 10 games including a 6-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks last time out.
Unlike Anaheim the Kings could not defeat Chicago, falling 5-3 at the Staples Center in downtown LA, and they now await the Capitals who will travel the short distance north after playing the Ducks.
