LAST TIME OUT
The Golden Knights returned to the win column Tuesday night with a 5-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks at T-Mobile Arena. Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves for his first win since returning to the team from a personal absence. Vegas received goals from Reilly Smith, Deryk Engelland, William Karlsson, Max Pacioretty and Ryan Reaves in the victory.

A VEGAS VICTORY WOULD…

  • Be the 111th win in franchise history
  • Give the Golden Knights their first win against St. Louis since the 2017-18 season

OPPOSITION UPDATE
The defending Stanley Cup Champions are enjoying early-season success with 42 points in 32 games to lead the Central Division. St. Louis has dropped three straight games but have maintained the top spot in the Central.

Former Golden Knight David Perron leads the Blues in scoring with 30 points (12G, 18A) in 32 games. Brayden Schenn is the team's leading goal scorer with 14 tallies while Ryan O'Reilly paces the club in assists with 21 helpers.

KEYS TO THE GAME
Score in Bunches: The Golden Knights were able to run away with the game Tuesday when they scored goal after goal after goal in the second period. It's important to hit the gas and lean on it to get to a comfortable lead.

Balanced Scoring: Vegas scored three even-strength goals, one power-play goal and one shorthanded goal on Tuesday. Scoring in all situations will be key against the defending champions.
