The Las Vegas Golden Knights continue their impressive season on the low against the lowly Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.
The Vegas Golden Knights put up one of the most Impressive seasons in NHL history as they have run away with the Pacific division title in just their first season in history, and while their run towards the President’s Trophy looks like it’ll fall short they have still been one of the league’s best teams all season long. The Knights are awaiting their first round opponent but in the meantime they will finish off the regular season looking to play some of their best hockey and head into the playoffs playing at the top of their game and a show down on the road against a Canucks side who have been atrocious this season and while they have won four games in a row they face a Knights side looking for a big win. The Knights are expected to send Marc-Andre Fleury to the crease this season and he will face off against Jacob Markstrom who will be out to keep the Knights’ offense at bay.

The Canucks meanwhile begin their final stretch of games in the regular season at home here against the Knights and with news coming down that long time forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin will be done at the end of this season I think that Rogers Arena will be electric in each of their remaining home games. The Canucks have a decent crop of youngsters that will look to take over the next wave of Vancouver hockey as the Sedin’s have ton for the last 18 years and while it won’t start until the puck drops next season it is nice to see some of their focal points of the future contributing to their moderate success this season.
The Knights are 19-7 in their last 26 against the Pacific and winless in their last four playing on two day’s rest while the Canucks are 16-35 in their last 51 overall and are 1-6 in their last seven on two day’s rest. Vegas doesn’t have a ton to play for here while Vancouver will bask in their last remaining games with the Sedin’s in tow and I think they are worth a look here as a huge home dog.
