10:30 p.m. ET; ATTSN-RM, FS-D, NHL.TV
The Vegas Golden Knights will look to extend their historic start to the season when they play their second-ever home game, against the Detroit Red Wings at T-Mobile Arena on Friday. With a 5-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday, Vegas became the first team in NHL history to begin its inaugural season 3-0-0.
This is the second of a seven-game homestand for the Golden Knights. Forward James Neal, who leads Vegas with five goals (tied for second in the NHL), is the fourth player in the expansion era to score in each of his team's first three games.
Detroit is coming off a 4-2 win against Arizona on Thursday. Forward Martin Frk scored his Red Wings-leading third goal.

They said it
"It's one thing to score, that's obviously a weapon [Frk] brings. But he's doing all the other little things really well -- he's making real good plays on the wall, he's responsible, all the things that gives a coach confidence. He's doing a great job and I'm really happy for him." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill
"You watch a team like them, they've got some real good, young talent. The Detroit identity is still there. They're hardworking, they've got some skill and talent. They're a dangerous team in that offensive zone." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant
