The Golden Knights are 2-1-1 in their past four games after a five-game winless streak (0-4-1). They lost 4-2 to the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday to finish a four-game homestand.

They said it
"They have to find [the fire]. We'll find it. We've got to be ready to play harder, that's all. Dallas is the most competitive team I've seen this year with the way they're playing right now in the last number of games. We better have some fire tonight, or we'll have a long night if we don't." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant
"The struggle we went through hardened us quickly. It got us kind of intense and in the right mindset of playing hard and almost playoff-esque hockey where it's still early in the season and it's not always going to be that way. I think it forced us to think that way and get into that groove right away because we knew we had a tall task ahead." -- Stars center Jason Dickinson on their turnaround
