Vegas Golden Knights Minnesota Wild HOME

The Vegas Golden Knights (31-15-6) and Minnesota Wild (23-23-5) have combined for a 4-0-0 post-All-Star break record. Monday’s meeting at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV marks the first of three meetings between the Golden Knights and Wild this season.

The Golden Knights have a 10-1-1 lifetime record and a 5-5-1 home record against the Wild.

The Golden Knights held an optional skate at 11:00 a.m. at City National Arena before their 7 p.m. puck drop against the Wild. Tonight’s lines for the Golden Knights are a bit up in the air.

“We should have 20 players ready to go.” Coach Bruce Cassidy on the sickness traveling through the team. “A few may come to the rink and we will find out (if they can play). But it just seems to be going through the team right now. Logan is definitely out, Hill starts and Patera backs up.

Jonas Rondbjerg, Mark Stone, and Zach Whitecloud missed Saturday’s practice due to illness. Rondbjerg participated in Monday’s optional skate, but Stone and Whitecloud did not.
