Golden Knights Have Not Lost Back-to-Back Games In Over A Month

The Vegas Golden Knights saw their eight-game winning streak snapped in their most recent outing but that should not be too concerning for the expansion team. The Knights have not lost consecutive contests since they dropped three straight from November 28 to December 1. The upstart Knights will look to start a new winning streak when they visit the struggling Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Blackhawks’ last 5 games at home.
  • The Golden Knights are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against the Western Conference.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Golden Knights’ last 6 games.

The Blackhawks certainly don’t look like their once dominant selves, as they are currently last in the stacked Central Division. However, it is their play against better-quality competition that is an issue, with the ’Hawks posting a SU record of 5-17 in their last 22 games vs teams with a winning record.

An explosive offense has propelled the Knights to the second-best record in the NHL. Since the beginning of December, the Knights are averaging 3.6 goals per game over a stretch of 15 games, including scoring four or more on eight occasions. Journeyman center Jonathan Marchessault has been the driving force, as the top-line center has notched six goals and nine assists in that span.
