Washington hosts Vegas after Wilson’s 2-goal game

Capitals stretch their winning streak to six with a 5-2 win over the Golden Knights

Capitals stretch their winning streak to six with a 5-2 win over the Golden Knights

It's an interconference clash on the ice in the Motor City.

Mark Stone (eight goals, 10 assists) and William Karlsson (four goals, 12 assists) have been standout playmakers for Vegas and will pace the offensive counter for the visiting Golden Knights.

The Vegas Golden Knights fell to the Washington Capitals, 5-2, on Saturday night at Capital One Arena. The teams have prevailed in all four meetings between the teams with the road team prevailing in each contest.

However, in the last game between Vegas and Washington, it was the Golden Knights that skated away with a 5-3 win on the road. Vegas is 16 in scoring with 2.94 goals per game this season.

Last year, Scott launched Astroworld Festival with the gimmick that he didn't announce the lineup until the day before. More and more, Manson is being cited as an inspiration for modern rappers like Lil Uzi Vert .

Fleury allowed four goals on 33 shots but made a spectacular save on T.J. Oshie on a 5-on-3 Capitals power play in the final minutes. Vegas is tied for ninth in the league with the man advantage as they convert 21.7 percent of their power play chances this season.

Are the Golden Knights worth betting on as the +115 underdogs? Vegas was outshot by a 13-7 margin in the opening period against the Maple Leafs but neither teams lit the lamp in the opening stanza. Washington's 4.00 goals per game average is tied for first in the league with the Nashville Predators. That left the game 0-0 after two periods of play. Vegas Golden Knights left wing Erik Haula (56) celebrates his goal with center Jonathan Marchessault (81) defenseman Nate Schmidt (88) and left wing James Neal (18) during the third period of an NHL hockey game, Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 in Ottawa, Ontario.

Marc-Andre Fleury (27.6 saves per game) has been the main choice in the net for Vegas. The over is an overwhelming -120 favorite, likely because 12 of Washington's last 17 games this season have resulted in over outcomes. It was his sixth goal of the season, and he capped the opening tally with his signature bird celebration for the first time this season. Meanwhile, backup goalie Malcolm Subban is 0-1-2 with a goals against average of 3.29. The Red Wings are led in points and goals by winger, Anthony Mantha who has 17 points and in goals with 10 on the season for the Red Wings. On the other hand, its penalty kill is rated eighth overall, and it's successfully killed off 85.7 percent of all penalties.

The Red Wings put together a surprisingly solid game and handed Boston a second straight regulation defeat on Friday night. In the final frame, Nicklas Backstrom scored two goals to lead Washington to the 5-2 win. In the second period, the Red Wings were outshot 12-10 but both teams scored once to leave them up 3-2 after two periods. The team has had to kill penalties for 11.0 minutes per game over its last five home outings. Detroit is scoring 2.17 goals per game and allowing 3.89 goals per game. Jimmy Howard is expected to be in net in this contest.
