Golden Knights wrap up back-to-back in Los Angeles

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights /

Following a 6-2 win against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena, the Vegas Golden Knights conclude their first back-to-back of the season against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday at 7 p.m. PT at Staples Center. Fans can tune in on AT&T SportsNet and FOX Sports Radio 98.9/1340 for the game.

Sunday's game is the back-half of Vegas' first back-to-back of the 2019-20 season. It's also the first tilt between the Golden Knights and Kings this season.

The Golden Knights are hosting an official watch party at Green Valley Ranch for Sunday's game. Join fellow fans and VGK Cast members for a night of fun and Vegas hockey.

Vegas put itself back in the win column Saturday night with a 6-2 victory against the Calgary Flames. William Carrier (1G, 1A), Mark Stone (1G, 1A) and Max Pacioretty (2A) each recorded two points for the Golden Knights in the win. Marc-Andre Fleury turned aside 33-of-35 shots as the Golden Knights erased a 2-1 deficit with five unanswered goals.

The Kings have found themselves involved in some high-scoring affairs through the first four games of the season. After being stomped by Vancouver on Wednesday, 8-2, Los Angeles scored three goals in the final minute of their game against the Nashville Predators to claim a 7-4 win Saturday night at Staples Center.

Anze Kopitar has chipped in seven points (2G, 5A) in four games to pace the Kings scorers. Ilya Kovalchuk (2G, 4A) sits just a point behind Kopitar on the team's scoring list while Drew Doughty's three goals lead the team in that category.

- Be the 98th win in franchise history

- Give the Golden Knights consecutive wins for the second time this season

If You're Going To Run, Run Fast: LA's track record this season implies that the teams could be in for a bit of a track meet Sunday evening. The Golden Knights proved their ability to light up the scoreboard Saturday night against Calgary and they may have to have a similar offensive output Sunday to beat the Kings.

Quick Reset: Saturday's win was a high for the Golden Knights, but they'll have to put it behind them quickly and focus on the task at hand.
