Not much was expected of the Vegas Golden Knights entering their inaugural season. They were constructed out of other teams’ castoffs. Now half way through the NHL’s regular season, the Golden Knights find themselves in first place in the Western Conference. They have the second best record in the entire NHL.

They have eight players with 20 points or more and rank third in the league in team offense. They’ve had four different starting goaltenders due to injuries. The Golden Knights have still managed to stay competitive. Seems the underdog status suits Vegas well.

Tampa Bay was expected to be good in 2017-18. At press time, the Lightning are +600 favorites to take home the Stanley Cup this year. They’ve been basically unstoppable at both ends of the ice. They rank first in goals for per game and second in goals against per game.

Add in two of the most lethal offensive players in the league, in Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov, and you have the top team in the NHL. Don’t miss this epic matchup Thursday night.
