Vegas Golden Knights Vs Colorado Avalanche Game Day Preview
We are taking this one outside! 2021 NHL Lake Tahoe outdoor series starts with the Vegas Golden Knights Vs Colorado Avalanche.
Vegas Golden Knights
Currently, the Vegas Golden Knights rank number one in their division standings. The match-up on Saturday will pit the two best teams in the Honda West division against each other. To match Colorado’s star power the Golden Knights have Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty and Shea Theodore, to name a few.
Although the Golden Knights have played 14 games this year, this will only be their fourth road game of the season. It will be interesting to see how each of these teams do when they are both effectively the away team in unfamiliar territory.
The game will be a battle of the goalies, as both Colorado and Vegas have two of the very best goalies in the NHL. Philipp Grubauer has a 1.64 GAA and .936 SV%, while Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has a 1.56 GAA and .937 SV%. They each have two shutouts.
The game on Saturday will be the first outing in four days for the Avalanche.
The Avalanche have only played 13 games this season thus far and place third in the Honda West division. However, they rank second in their division in points percentage, boasting a stellar .654%.
In one of the more interesting seasons in the league’s history, the Avalanche have so far been able to weather the COVID-19 storm on the ice. With Nathan MacKinnon leading the way with 15 points in 12 games and Cale Makar continuing his rookie season success, the Avalanche will be a formidable opponent, even outdoors.
The Colorado Avalanche lead their division in goal differential with a +14.
