The Vegas Golden Knights are on a five-game point streak, and the world doesn’t seem to be collapsing on them anymore. They will try to win for the fifth time in six games when they host the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Malcolm Subban will make his seventh consecutive start for Vegas. Marc-Andre Fleury, who rejoined the team Thursday after spending a week away from the club due to the passing of his father, will get some more practice reps before returning to the starter’s crease, coach Gerard Gallant said before the game.

Alexandar Georgiev will make his third consecutive start for the Rangers, who have won five of their past eight games.

This is the second meeting in six days between the Golden Knights and Rangers; Vegas defeated New York 4-1 at Madison Square Garden on Monday.
