Rumble in the Tundra, Golden Knights Game 73: Lines, Notes & How to Watch vs. Jets



Vegas Golden Knights Winnipeg Jets AWAY

The Vegas Golden Knights (39-29-8) have solidified their playoff standing after the first two games of their four-game Central Division road trip. They let one slip away against the Nashville Predators, allowing three third period goals, but still earned a loser point to pad their lead over the St. Louis Blues. However, on Thursday, the Golden Knights face the quiet giant of the Central, the Winnipeg Jets (44-22-6) at the Canada Life Centre.

The Stanley Cup playoff seeds are tight. Golden Knights currently lead St. Louis by six points for the final wild card but remain hot on the heels of the LA Kings for third place in the Pacific. The VGK trail by just one point but have played just one more game.

The Golden Knights were ready to end the longest points streak in the NHL this season. They pinned but couldn’t finish the Nashville Predators Tuesday. With a 4-1 lead in the third period, Nashville scored early, then scored two goals in 40 seconds after Golden Knights coach Bruce Cassidy lost an offsides challenge on the first goal, and Nashville quickly converted on the subsequent power play.

Nashville upped their points streak to 18 games.

The Golden Knights have been to overtime in two straight games (St. Louis, Nashville).

Winnipeg has stumbled lately, going 0-3-1, losing in OT to the Edmonton Oilers, 4-3.
