VGK will face a desperate Florida Panthers team that is in must-win mode in 11th place in the Eastern Conference and just three points out of a playoff position. The Panthers are 1-1 in their current seven-game homestand. VGK will be facing a much different Panthers team than the won they defeated in Las Vegas earlier in the season 4-2. Sam Bennet, Sasha Barkov and Anthony Duclair have all returned and are healthy for a playoff run. VGK expects to put Adin Hill in net tonigh. We feel if VGK can get six of 10 points on the road they should be able to stay in the driver's seat in the Pacific Division. The Golden Knights saw divisional opponents Edmonton, L.A. and Calgary all post wins on Monday, so they will need to get points in the opening game of the long road-trip. Chris also argues that VGK can still come out of the Western Conference. The Golden Knights have won 20, 1-goal games this season. We wonder when, or if, that streak will end. Jack Eichel has scored 14 points over his last 11 games. FANDUEL DISCLAIMER: 21+ in select states. First online real money wager only.
