Golden Knights hit the road for 4 games
By Tom Spousta/Las Vegas Review-Journal
The Golden Knights enjoy one of the NHL’s most raucous home ice advantages, but the road has been filled with pitfalls and potholes so far this season.
They are 7-11 away from the confines of the fortress known as T-Mobile Arena, and those struggles need to be addressed this week if the Knights want to continue their climb in the Pacific Division standings during a four-game road trip begins Wednesday in New York.
All four games are against Metropolitan Division teams with a combined record of 54-49. The Knights face the New York Islanders (14-11), followed by the New Jersey Devils (10-13) on Friday and the second of four back-to-back scenarios in December with the New York Rangers (14-13) on Sunday and Columbus Blue Jackets (16-12) on Monday.
Expect center Paul Stastny to return after missing two months with a lower-body injury. He’ll likely skate with the third line with Ryan Carpenter, Oscar Lindberg and Tomas Nosek as he’s worked back into the lineup.
And will the road swing present a chance to give Marc-Andre Fleury a game off? Fleury leads NHL goaltenders in starts (28) and is one of only two goalies to own all of his team’s victories (a league-best 17).
The Knights return to begin a four-game homestand Dec. 20 against the Islanders.
