Chandler Stephenson leads the team with 40 points (11 goals 29 assists) and Reilly Smith leads the club with 18 goals and both have failed to register a point over the last four games.

Vegas comes into this game as a rather big betting favorite posted at -175 with a total of 6. 5 goals. Three Does Not Cut It, AgainIn the Red Wings three-game losing streak they have scored three goals in each game. In their last one they were on the road and lost to the Arizona Coyotes 4-3 in a shootout where they came back from a 3-1 deficit but could not get it done in the shootout.
First Time this SeasonThe Golden Knights were at home in their last game losing to the Dallas Stars 4-0, which was their first shutout loss of the season. They were outshot 36-27 and failed to convert on both of their power play chances. All Star Logan Thompson (18-12-1 2. 62 GAA) has lost his last three starts where he gave up 10 goals. Adin Hill (10-3-1 2. 61 GAA) may be in between the pipes to face the Red Wings and in his last two starts he has only given up three goals. New pads, who dis ✨ pic.
