The NHL is back in action on Monday as the Vegas Golden Knights will clash with the Buffalo Sabres at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo New York. The Golden Knights started the season with a 2-1 win against the Wild, and the Sabres are off a 3-1 home win against the Rangers. Vegas was the better team last season as they won the two games against the Sabres.
Vegas Golden Knights Form
Well, where to start? The Golden Knights had a dream debut season last year as they went against all the odds to get to the Stanley Cup Finals. They were the surprise of the season and it was unfortunate not to win the Stanley Cup as the Capitals were too strong for them. The Knights started the season with a loss in the game against the Flyers. However, they were able to bounce back with a home win against the Rangers.
On the offensive side of the game, Vegas was on the 5th spot in the league in scoring last year at 3.27 goals per game and 8th spot in goals allowed at 2.74 goals per game.
Buffalo Sabres Form
The Sabres were one of the worst teams in the league last season. They had the fewest points last year and it seems that this season they will be in the bottom half of the table again. They are a talented team but they still need to grow in order to become challengers for a playoff spot. However, they played well in the last game as they beat the Rangers at home with a score of 3-1. This is a talented team, especially on offence. On the defensive side, Buffalo was on the 29th spot in goals allowed at 3.39 goals per game.
The Sabres are a team that has a lot of potentials. They have some young talented players but, they need to grow as a team. On the other side, the Golden Knights were the 2nd best team last season and they have made some good additions in the team this year. I expect a solid win for the Golden Knights in this one.
