The Vegas Golden Knights have another chance to close out this best-of-seven first-round series against San Jose tonight as they host the Sharks for Game 6. This is the first time in franchise history that the Knights have a chance to close out a series on home ice.

Vegas was unable to take care of business on the road in Game 5 as the Sharks pulled off a 5-2 win at SAP Center to stay alive.

Following the win, second-line center Tomas Hertl guaranteed a Game 7 because the Sharks are a “better team” than the Knights.

However, Vegas will have something to say about that tonight. Even though it’s not truly a do-or-die situation for the Knights, tonight is essentially a must-win game for Vegas to avoid going back to San Jose for a winner-takes-all Game 7 showdown.

Here are the projected lineups for both clubs:

Golden Knights

Marchessault — Karlsson — Smith
Pacioretty — Stastny — Stone
Nosek — Eakin — Tuch
Carrier — Bellemare — Reaves

Schmidt — Engelland
McNabb — Theodore
Merrill — Miller

Fleury
Subban

Sharks

Meier (#28) — Couture (#39) — Pavelski (#8)
Kane (#9) — Hertl (#48) — Nyquist (#14)
Sorensen (#20) — Thornton (#19) — Labanc (#62)
Donskoi (#27) — Goodrow (#23) — M. Karlsson (#68)

Vlasic (#44) — Burns (#88)
Dillon (#4) — E. Karlsson (#65)
Ryan (#47) — Braun (#61)

Jones (#31)
Dell (#30)
