The Vegas Golden Knights will once again face off against the Seattle Kraken, and tonight they will attempt to sweep the season series. The Golden Knights enter tonight with a record of 37-28-4 (78 points), and are 5-5-0 over their last 10 games played, including three wins in a row. Seattle has a record of 21-40-6 (48 points), and is 4-5-1 over the last 10 games played.

Last game out the Golden Knights defeated Seattle 3-0, and received excellent goaltending from Logan Thompson, and Jonathan Marchessault tallied a goal and an assist to lead the way offensively.

Tonight’s another important game for the Golden Knights as they attempt to play themselves back into the playoff picture.
