Vegas Golden Knights return to the fortress for another preseason matchup versus the Avalanche

Another Thursday in Las Vegas, and yet another Vegas, Golden Knights hockey game is upon us. The Vegas Golden Knights were shutout by the San Jose Sharks, 2-0, during Tuesday night’s preseason game at T-Mobile Arena. Seven minutes into the second period, Thomas Bordeleau netted the first goal of the game For the Sharks. Neither side scored in the third as the Golden Knights fell, 2- 0. The game which is in the preseason was nothing more than that, a glorified training session to see what young talent, and what player is ready to take that coveted roster spot.

Tonight, the Vegas Golden Knights take on the Colorado Avalanche, to whom they lost the regular season series last year, 1-2-0. The Knights and the Avalanche first met on Oct. 22 where the Avalanche came away with a 3-2 victory. In January, Nicolas Roy scored two goals in the second period to overtake Colorado 3-2 at Ball Arena. In their final meeting of the season, Colorado held Vegas off the scoresheet to defeat the Golden Knights 3- 0. Mark Stone and Nicolas Roy led the Golden Knights in team scoring against the Avalanche. The Colorado avalanche come into the game, the winners of 2 out of the last 5 games here in the preseason as where the Vegas Golden Knights come in 1-4 in their last five preseason games. The last time these two faced off a little over a week ago Colorado got the best of them at home with a 3-2 final.

Adin Hill and Logan Thompson shared the net on Tuesday night, facing a combined 29 shots and allowing one goal each. Hill made the start and stopped 14 shots, posting a .933 save-percentage. Thompson entered the contest halfway through the second period and made 13 saves, good for a .929 save percentage. Thompson is among 12 goaltenders in the preseason who have played 100 minutes or more with a 2.00 goals-against average or better. With all that being said, it begs to differ the question, who will be in net tonight, but not only that who will be in net next Tuesday night when the season opens up?

The betting line for tonight’s game sits at Colorado Avalanche favorite -125 with the over and under sitting at 6. Odds are courtesy of William Hill Sportsbooks. Game Information: 7:08 p.m. PT: Puck drop vs. Colorado, T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
