Golden Knights Game 56 Preview vs. Predators: Theodore Could Return Plus Projected Lines, Notes, Keys to the Game, and How to Watch



Vegas Golden Knights Nashville Predators HOME

The Vegas Golden Knights (32-17-6) take on the Nashville Predators (28-25-2) on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. This is the second leg of a back-to-back for the Golden Knights, who defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-0 on the road on Monday afternoon.

This is a great spot for the Golden Knights to bank points against a team they have handled well in the past. The Golden Knights are 10-5-1 lifetime and 4-3-1 against the Predators in T-Mobile Arena.

The Golden Knights are hoping to have Shea Theodore back in the lineup Tuesday night. Theodore last played on Nov. 22 and has 18 points in 20 games this season.

The Golden Knights held an optional skate at 11:00 a.m. before Tuesday’s puck drop.

It appears Mason Morelli will appear in his second NHL game tonight.  Grigori Denisenko was sent to the Henderson Silver Knights.  Jack Eichel was moved to LTIR to create cap space to activate Theodore.

Key to the Game

Pedal to the metal! The Golden Knights held leads at home last week against the Minnesota Wild and Carolina Hurricanes and failed to get any standings points. Monday was a different story, the Golden Knights got a lead and knew what to do with it against the Sharks. The Golden Knights need to keep their foot on the loud pedal if they get a lead against the Predators.
