As eight matches are around the board for Tuesday night the NHL is set with another night of action. One would be between the Vegas Golden Knights that are undefeated and the Boston Bruins. These two teams have started off strong, but one will have to take their first loss of the season on October 8. The puck is set to drop at 10:00 PM Eastern time.
Boston has started the season off at 2-0, which includes them. The Bruins needed a rough finish to last year as they created it all the way to the Stanley Cup before falling to the St. Louis Blues in seven games. Boston appears to be on a mission early this year to prove they are outstanding, and theyre able to keep it going with a road win in this match.
The Golden Knights are to start out the season. Vegas is tied with the Edmonton Oilers and the Anaheim Ducks for the top place in the Pacific Division. The Golden Knights and with the San Jose Sharks have played with, but were able to find revenge after last seasons playoff loss. Vegas will seem to pull off their second home win.
The Bruins and the Golden Knights are season favorites to make it on the years Stanley Cups and theyve backed it up with play that is great to start out the season. I expect both of these groups to come out fast on Tuesday as they try and maintain their winning streaks going. This is supposed to be one of the best games.
Boston and Vegas met during last season. The Bruins hosted the very first game of the season and were able to take a comfortable 4-1 win off with them. The Golden Knights hosted the next game of this season, which was much nearer. The two teams needed a six round shootout to determine the winner, but David Backes scored the winner to give Boston a 3-2 win.
The Bruins have won their first two games in low scoring affairs. Brett Richie and Danton Heinen scored to give Boston a 2-1 win against the Dallas Stars in their first game. Brad Marchand needed the Bruins sole goal in the game. Jaroslav Halak posted a 35 shot shutout in their game to assist Boston achieve 2-0.
The Golden Knights opened their season with home and a home . Vegas took the first game 4-1 in their home ice. The Golden Knights then went on to win 5-1 in San Jose in their game. Tomas Nosek and reilly Smith direct Vegas in goals with 2 each, while Mark Stone has a goal and three assists to lead the Golden Knights in things.
The Bruins particular teams have been away to a good start this season. Boston has been in a position to score one of the six power play opportunities up to now. The Bruins have killed off all five of them and have allowed their opponents five power play chances. The Bruins needed year to a strong power play and penalty kill.
Vegas power play has been off to a start this season. The Golden Knights have managed to net one power play goal. Vegas penalty kill on the other hand has been dominant. The Golden Knights have killed off most of the energy plays against them. I dont anticipate this to last, and I believe that the power play of Boston has a great opportunity.
Its still early, although neither of those teams have set up the very best power play numbers this season. Powerful offensive forces can be put up by both groups though, which makes me think they could get moving against every other. Neither the Bruins nor the Golden Knights have allowed a power play goal, which will eventually come to a conclusion.
Tuukka Rask will be the starting goalie for Boston on Tuesday night. Rask has earned a .966 save percent because hes stopped 28 of the 29 shots hes faced. Last season, he had a save percentage of .912 along with a 2.48 GAA as he put up a list of 27-13-5. Rask closed down the Stars crime in his first starthe will have to cease Vegas crime that is hot.
Marc-Andre Fleury will likely begin in this matchup between the pipes for the Golden Knights. Fleury has stopped 55 of the 57 shots he has confronted on the season for a .965 save percent. Fleury ended final season. In these games, he earned a save percentage of .913 along with a GAA of 2.51.
As their clubs have gotten to 2-0, Both of these goalies have been away to hot starts this year. Both goalies have met lots of times night, and that I anticipate another matchup on Tuesday. Both of these goalies have put up stats this year and last year, therefore it ought to be a fantastic battle.
I believe that the Bruins have a good opportunity to get their offense going in this game and earn a big win. Boston has just scored three times this year, which is low for the offense the Bruins have. Both of these teams have done well so far and lots of it stems from the number. I believe the offense of the Boston is more inclined to break through on the Golden Knights defense, providing the advantage to them.
BetOnline has Vegas. This means that the Golden Knights will win this match around 56.5% of their time. I think this game ought to be closer to even. The Bruins have been doing just as well this year and I presume that they have a excellent chance to pull the upset on the road .
