The Golden Knights play five home games at T-Mobile Arena in the month of December. Our Home Preview, presented by Berkshire Hathaway, looks at what's on tab for the Golden Knights this month.
The last time the Golden Knights and Capitals met at T-Mobile Arena, a 4-3 win for Washington clinched the Stanley Cup. This time around, the Golden Knights look to show their re-tooled roster has what it takes to get by Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals in a marquee matchup in Vegas.
On Nov. 27, the Golden Knights set the franchise record for goals in a game as they defeated the Blackhawks 8-3. Fans can expect Patrick Kane and a hungry Blackhawks team to come to Vegas ready to create a competitive atmosphere for the T-Mobile Arena crowd.
This matchup is the first of the season between Vegas and Dallas. Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and the Stars come to Vegas looking to gain ground in a competitive Central Division while the Golden Knights hope to land two points before heading on an east coast road trip.
Vegas travels to New York to face the Islanders on Dec. 12 and the two clubs will conclude their season series at T-Mobile Arena only eight days later. Mathew Barzal and the new-look Islanders will be looking to take two points with them when they leave Vegas.
The Canadiens edged the Golden Knights, 5-4, when the teams met on Nov. 10 in Montreal. Max Pacioretty and the Golden Knights look to make up for that loss in front of a raucous T-Mobile Arena crowd and split the season series with Montreal.
For their final home game of 2018, the Golden Knights host Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and the Colorado Avalanche for an important game at T-Mobile Arena. The last game of the calendar year at home should bring some early New Year's fireworks.
