LAST TIME OUT
In the back half of a season-opening home-and-home series with the San Jose Sharks, the Golden Knights picked up a convincing 5-1-win Friday night at SAP Center. Tomas Nosek led the way with three points (2G, 1A) while Mark Stone posted two assists. William Carrier, Jonathan Marchessault and Brayden McNabb also scored for the Golden Knights Marc-Andre Fleury made 34 saves for Vegas as he earned the win in his 800th NHL appearance.

A VEGAS VICTORY WOULD…
- Be the 97th win in franchise history

- Mark Vegas' second 3-0-0 start in three seasons

KEYS TO THE GAME
Keep Chugging Along: Vegas' 2-0 start against the rival Sharks is the best way they could have started the year. The Golden Knights will look to keep up that momentum as they return home to face Boston.

More Than Just One Line: Boston's top line of Bergeron, Marchand and Pastrnak is leaned on heavily for scoring punch and defensive prowess, but teams often get caught up worrying too much about just that unit. The Golden Knights will have to treat all four Bruins' lines like that top line to ensure consistent defensive effort.
