LAST TIME OUT
On Friday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena, Vegas collected its second consecutive win with a 2-1 shootout victory against the Arizona Coyotes. Alex Tuch scored in regulation for the Golden Knights and he netted the shootout winner. Malcolm Subban stood tall in goal as he notched his first home win of the year.
A VEGAS VICTORY WOULD…
- Be the 108th win in franchise history
- Give the Golden Knights a four-game win streak against the Rangers dating back to Jan. 7, 2018.
The Rangers have hovered near the two wild card spots in the Eastern Conference with 29 points in 25 games. They sit sixth in the Metropolitan Division.
KEYS TO THE GAME
Start Spreading The News: Vegas had a 2-0-1 road record during their three games in the New York City area last season. Monday is their first opportunity to put up strong numbers in the Big Apple once again.
Support Subban: If Malcolm Subban makes his fourth consecutive start, Vegas will need to make life easier for their goaltender. He's won his last two games, but they've both been by one goal. The Golden Knights will want to give him a comfortable lead.
