The NHL is back in action on Saturday as the Vegas Golden Knights will clash with the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. The Golden Knights are heading into this game after a loss to the Penguins with a score of 4-3. On the other side, the Flyers won their last game against the Senators with a score of 7-4.
Vegas Golden Knights Form
The Golden Knights played very well last season. They were able to surprise many in their first season in the NHL as they went all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. However, they did not have a good start this season as they already have 4 defeats and only one win. They were beaten by the Capitals and the Penguins and that may be expected. Yet, they could have done better in the game the Sabres.
It is still early in the season and we might see some improvement by the Knights in near future.
On the offensive side of the game, Vegas was the 5th best team in the league last season as they had an average of 3.27 goals per game. Nevertheless, they have scored only 2 goals so far this season and it seems that this is their main problem, although their defence is not that good either.
Philadelphia Flyers Form
The Flyers had a good start of the season as they beat the Golden Knights with a score of 5-2. However, that early promise went to the drain as they lost the games against the Avalanche and the Sharks. The defeat against the Sharks was bad as the end score was 8-2. They will aim for their first home win this season. It seems that their offence is inconsistent as they were very efficient in their wins with 12 goals scored and only 4 goals in their defeats this season. This team has a lot of potentials and they played well last season. The general expectation is that they will be in the mix for a playoff spot this season.
The Golden Knights are a good team but they have not been playing well in the opening part of the season. They lost the first game of the season against the Flyers at home and it seems that this defeat hit their confidence.
On the other side, the Flyers have a mixed success so far this season. However, they beat Vegas in the first game and that will give them a confidence boost to repeat the same performance. I expect that they will be able to get the first home of the season in this game. Go for the Flyers in this one.
