The Vegas Golden Knights and Carolina Hurricanes meet Saturday in the NHL action at the PNC Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 20.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Jack Eichel leads Vegas with 23 goals, Chandler Stephenson has 38 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 191 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 79.9 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Logan Thompson has given up 94 goals on 1,093 shots faced, and Adin Hill has allowed 62 goals on 728 shots.

The Carolina Hurricanes are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 21.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Sebastian Aho leads Carolina with 27 goals, Brent Burns has 39 assists and Andrei Svechnikov has 203 shots on goal. Defensively, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 83.6 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Frederik Andersen has allowed 52 goal on 552 shots faced, and Antti Raanta has allowed 51 goals on 551 shots.

The Golden Knights are 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Hurricanes are 48-17 in their last 65 home games and 39-17 in their last 56 overall. The under is 11-2-1 in Golden Knights last 14 road games. The under is 6-2-1 in Hurricanes last 9 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Carolina Hurricanes have been a buzz saw at home dating back to last season, and they’re easily playing the better hockey overall right now. The Vegas Golden Knights have issues winning on the road all of a sudden. With all that said, we’re getting 1.5 times our money with a good Vegas side. That doesn’t happen a lot. Give me the Golden Knights based on the value.
