It isn't often that the Golden Knights have laid an egg at home this season. That happened when they lost 8-3 to the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night at T-Mobile Arena.
Although the lost will be largely forgotten if Vegas can rebound to defeat the Minnesota Wild on home ice this evening.
The Wild (39-24-7) are losers of two straight games, but have defeated the Golden Knights (45-20-5) in both of the teams' meetings so far this season, both of which were in Minnesota. While Minnesota still remains in third place of the Central Division, it now is only three points clear of a playoff spot.
