Surprising Golden Knights Are Lighting It up in Sin City

The Vegas Golden Knights continue to defy the odds in their expansion season and can improve on a Western Conference-best record with a home win over the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-2 in Golden Knights last seven games.
  • The Rangers are 2-5 SU in their last seven games coming off a win.
  • The Golden Knights are 8-1 SU in their last nine vs teams with winning records.

Vegas owns the league’s best home record at 17-2-1 SU and is riding a nine-game point streak which has seen the team go 8-0-1 over that span. In fact, the Golden Knights hadn’t lost in regulation since November 28 vs Dallas before falling to St. Louis on Thursday. Jonathan Marchessault, who leads the team with 39 points, has points in eight of his last nine games, including six goals and seven assists.

The Rangers are no slouch either, as they’ve gone 6-2-2 SU in their last 10. Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist made 38 saves before stopping all three attempts he faced in the shootout to record his 424th career victory in a 2-1 win in Arizona on Saturday. Each of New York’s last five road games have gone to overtime, with the club going 2-0 in OT and 1-2 in shootouts in that span.

The UNDER has been profitable in Rangers games of late, evidenced by the UNDER going 5-1 in New York’s last six games.
