BRUINS (2-0-0) at GOLDEN KNIGHTS (2-0-0)
10 p.m. ET; ESPN+, ATTSN-RM, NESN, NHL.TV
The Vegas Golden Knights and Boston Bruins will each look to win their third consecutive game to start the season when they play at T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday.
The Golden Knights can match the best start in team history with a win (3-0-0 in 2017-18). Vegas won eight of its first nine games in its inaugural season, including its only victory against the Bruins, 3-1 on Oct. 15, 2017.
A win would match Boston's best start since 2001-02 when they began the season 3-0-0. This is the third game of a four-game road trip for the Bruins, who have scored three goals in their two victories.
Players to watch
Bruins forward Brad Marchand is three assists from 300 in the NHL.
Golden Knights forward Mark Stone has four points (one goal, three assists) this season.
They said it
"We're going to play our game. We're a good defensive team. I suspect if we play our game, we'll keep them below their average, but I guess we'll see. We've been pretty well-disciplined. Their penalty kill has actually contributed to some goals, so we'll have to keep an eye on that." -- Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy
"It's all about consistency for us. We had two good games [against the San Jose Sharks]. We've got to be good. We've got to be good against [the Bruins] because they have the offensive power to make you pay, and they're a better team than San Jose, I think, so it's a real challenge for us." -- Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault
