GOLDEN KNIGHTS (14-11-4) at DEVILS (9-13-4)
7 p.m. ET; MSG, ATTSN-RM, NHL.TV
The Vegas Golden Knights will look to extend their winning streak to four games when they play the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Tuesday.
The Golden Knights defeated the New York Rangers 4-1 on Monday for a season-best third straight win.
Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury isn't with the Golden Knights because of a private family matter, and coach Gerard Gallant says that he believes Fleury will re-join them on their road trip this week but doesn't know when.
Garret Sparks is expected to start against the Devils after Malcolm Subban started four consecutive games.
Devils rookie center Jack Hughes is questionable after missing the past two games. He sustained a lower-body injury in a 6-4 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 28.
New Jersey allowed five goals in the first period of a 7-1 loss at the Buffalo Sabres on Monday and has been outscored 11-1 in two straight losses.
Players to watch
Golden Knights right wing Alex Tuch scored twice against the Rangers and has three goals in his past two games.
Devils center Nico Hischier has seven points (two goals, five assists) in his past eight games.
They said it
"[Tuch] has been hurt a lot this season, so it's great to see him skating and shooting the way he can; I expect Tuch to be a 30-goal scorer. He plays hard, plays well and when he shoots pucks like that they're going to go into the net." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant
"I think everyone in here feels that they probably weren't good enough [against the Sabres] and it's about responding individually [against the Golden Knights]. I'd love to say 'just flush it,' but you get beat 7-1, there were some mistakes that were made and some things we learned, so hopefully we can do that and respond with a better effort." -- Devils left wing Taylor Hall
