LAST TIME OUT
In their final game of a four-game streak at home, the Golden Knights were beaten by the Edmonton Oilers, 4-2. Cody Eakin and Shea Theodore scored for Vegas, but three assists from Leon Draisaitl and two goals from Connor McDavid powered the Oilers to a win.
A VEGAS VICTORY WOULD…
- Be the 106th win in franchise history
- Improve Vegas' win streak against Dallas to five games
The Stars are one of the hottest teams in the league right now with a six-game win streak and a 9-0-1 record in their last 10 outings. With 30 points in 24 games, Dallas sits second in the Central Division.
Tyler Seguin is the team leader in scoring through the quarter-mark of the season with 19 points (6G, 13A) in 24 games. Sophomore defenseman Miro Heisanken ranks second in scoring with 17 points (6G, 11A) while Roope Hintz owns the top spot in goal scoring for Dallas with 10 markers.
KEYS TO THE GAME
Focus on Vegas: Saturday night against Edmonton, the Golden Knights were caught up in trying to stop McDavid and Draisaitl. The team will need to reset and get back to worrying about their own game rather than keying in on the opposition too heavily.
Rest on the Road: During the team's four-game homestand last week, the Golden Knights played great against Calgary and Toronto but struggled against San Jose and Edmonton. Hitting the road for a pair of games might be what the doctor ordered for Vegas.
