It’s not impossible, but the possibilities of it happening took a significant hit Monday night as the Vegas Golden Knights lost in regulation to the New Jersey Devils 3-2. We will look into what went wrong and what is going wrong with the Golden Knights on Tuesday.

The Golden Knights have five games remaining. Two at home, and three on the road. They will play the Washington Capitals at 7:00 pm on Wednesday. It should go without saying that is a must-win game.

The Vancouver Canucks have won six straight games and are now just one point behind the Golden Knights in the standings. Maybe it will be the Canucks who sneak into the third spot in the Pacific Division standings after all. They knocked off the Dallas Stars 6-2 Monday night.

The Stars and Nashville Predators are dueling it out for positioning in the last Wild Card spot. They are both tied with 91 points. Even though the Predators did not play Monday they passed the Stars in the standings for the firts Wild Card spot given the Stars number of game played and ROW wins.

As always stay tuned for more updates. Happy to break it down for you here at Vegas Hockey Now.
