BLUES (6-2-0) at GOLDEN KNIGHTS (5-1-0)
10:30 p.m. ET; ATTSN-RM, FS-MW, NHL.TV
The Vegas Golden Knights will try to become the first team in NHL history to win six of its first seven games in its inaugural season when they host the St. Louis Blues at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday.
Vegas joined the 1917-18 Montreal Canadiens as the only teams to win five of their first six games with a 5-4 overtime win against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday. Montreal lost its next game to the Toronto Arenas 6-4.
Golden Knights forwards Jonathan Marchessault and Erik Haula will each miss his third straight game because of a lower-body injury.
St. Louis defenseman Colton Parayko will play after injuring his hand in a 4-3 win at the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.
The Blues have won their past two games and a win would give them their best start since 2010-11, when they started 6-1-2.
Players to watch
Blues forward Jaden Schwartz is tied for third in the League with 12 points (six goals, six assists). He has five points (four goals, one assist) in the past three games, including a hat trick in a 5-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday.
