The last time the Knights faced Philadelphia at home, the Flyers walked out of T-Mobile Arena with a 4-1 victory. The Knights responded in their second meeting against the Flyers, though, beating them 3-2 while giving Marc-Andre Fleury his 400th career win. Fleury has a 28-18-2 record in 54 regular season matchups against the Flyers.
Two days after Vegas’ home opener, the Knights will travel to Xcel Energy Center to take on the Minnesota Wild in their home opener. Vegas lost to Minnesota in each of their three meetings last season.
