Fresh off a 4-1 win against the New York Rangers on Monday, the Vegas Golden Knights (14-11-4) go right back to work against the New Jersey Devils (9-13-4) on Tuesday at 4 p.m. PT at Prudential Center.

The Golden Knights acquired forward Chandler Stephenson from the Washington Capitals in exchange for a 2021 fifth round pick Monday night. Stephenson will wear number 20.

Forward Nicolas Roy was reassigned to the Chicago Wolves on Monday night.

Vegas and New Jersey face off for the first time in 2019-20 on Tuesday. Last season, the Golden Knights went 1-0-1 against the Devils.

Vegas got off to a hot start Monday night against the New York Rangers as Alex Tuch scored twice in the first 3:50 for a 2-0 lead. Reilly Smith and Max Pacioretty added goals during the second period to propel the Golden Knights to a 4-1 win. Malcolm Subban stopped 29 of 30 shots for the Golden Knights.


  • Mark the 109th win in franchise history
  • Give the Golden Knights their first four-game win streak of the season

The Devils occupy the basement of the Metropolitan Division with 22 points in 26 games. They've lost two consecutive games and were outscored by a total of 11-1 in those two games.

Forward Taylor Hall has the most points of any New Jersey skater with 21 (4G, 17A). Kyle Palmieri and Blake Coleman have each scored a team-best nine goals. After being acquired from the Golden Knights during the summer, forward Nikita Gusev has 12 points (5G, 7A) in 23 games for the Devils.

More of Monday: Vegas' start against the Rangers was one of its best this season. Jumping out to the lead early again will be key against New Jersey.

Welcome, Chandler: If Chandler Stephenson makes his Golden Knights debut Tuesday, Vegas will want to show its newest forward what Golden Knights hockey is all about.
