Golden Knights vs. Coyotes Prediction

I’m on the Golden Knights here. I feel like the Coyotes are just at a point where they’re playing out the string and I have no real interest in backing them even at home down the stretch. Vegas has something of consequence to play for here as they’re still in the midst of a playoff push and head-to-head, they’ve gotten the better of the Coyotes in a lot of recent meetings. Give me Vegas in this one.
