GAME THREAD 20/82: St. Louis Blues at Vegas Golden Knights
Come chat with us as David Perron returns to Vegas.
David Perron will make his return to Vegas tonight as the Golden Knights host the St. Louis Blues, who hold a 6-7-3 record.
The Knights will look to extend their home winning streak to four games and improve their overall record to 9-10-1 on the season, taking one step closer to .500. St. Louis handed the Knights a 5-3 loss at the beginning of this month and is coming off a 1-0 loss to Chicago.
The Blues will get Brayden Schenn back in the lineup tonight, though Ryan O’Reilly remains the top-line center, skating between Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko. O’Reilly recently snapped a 10-game point streak, though he still leads the Blues in scoring with eight goals and 21 points.
Marc-Andre Fleury has recorded back-to-back shutouts on home ice, stopping the last 63 shots he’s faced.

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