Vegas Looks To Stay Hot Away from Sin City

The Vegas Golden Knights enter this game 17th in the NHL in goals scored per game when on the road. Mark Stone has been a stud this season, racking up over 60 points already this year.

Staal will need to light up the goal horn more often if this Minnesota team wants a shot to win tonight and a shot to make the playoffs.
