NHL: Vegas Golden Knights at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden Knights are coming off an exciting 6-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers and will look for similar results tonight against the Calgary Flames.

This is the second game in a string of five consecutive games against Pacific Division opponents for the Knights, who are 1-0-0 with Nate Schmidt in the lineup.

It will also be the first time James Neal faces the Golden Knights since leaving via free agency this summer. He hasn’t gotten off to a strong start to the season, scoring just three goals and four points in 20 games.

Calgary (11-8-1) is second in the division with 23 points, four more than Vegas (9-11-1). These teams will play three more times this season, including Friday afternoon in Vegas.

Here are the projected lineups for both clubs:

Golden Knights

Marchessault — Karlsson — Smith
Pacioretty — Eakin — Tuch
Nosek — Carpenter — Hyka
Carrier — Bellemare — Reaves

Theodore — Schmidt
Miller — McNabb
Engelland — Holden

Subban
Fleury

Flames

Gaudreau — Monahan — Lindholm
Tkachuk — Backlund — Bennett
Frolik — Ryan — Neal
Dube — Jankowski — Hathaway

Giordano — Brodie
Hanifin — Hamonic
Valimaki — Andersson

Rittich
Smith
