Stadium: T-Mobile Arena (Paradise)

Vegas Plays Worse at Home
Usually, home teams are more dangerous in their arena than on the road. Golden Knights is a rare opposite example. Peter DeBoer's team lost only 5 out of 16 matches on the road. At home, Vegas fell in 9 out of 20 games. Interesting statistics, most likely explained by the peculiarities of the city. In Las Vegas, no one wants to travail, including local hockey players.
The home match with the Rangers will be the 4th for the Knights. The beginning of the period turned out to be successful – Vegas beat Anaheim 3:1. Then the Golden Knights lost in overtime to Winnipeg 4:5, and Nashville eventually left Nevada altogether with a 3:2 win in regular time.
Overall, the Golden Knights still top the Pacific Division standings and the entire Western Conference. The team looks powerful. However, only a high-quality performance in the playoffs will be an indicator of the season's success for Vegas.
Rangers is Now a Contender
Having rebuilt the game, Gerrard Gallant immediately achieved more than acceptable results with the Rangers. Gallant's former team, the Rangers, leads a solid Metropolitan Division by the match with Vegas. New York is the third, behind Florida and Tampa Bay in the East.
The Rangers have three wins in a row. The New York team beat Tampa Bay twice. First, away in a shootout, then at home with a shutout by Igor Shesterkin. After these landmark victories, the Rangers also beat Edmonton. 4:1 - the Oilers did not cause any problems to the Rangers.
Expert Betting Tips
The Rangers still have to manage without Artemi Panarin, even though they are coping with the absence of one of their main strikers. Fortunately, New York has one of the best forwards in the NHL. Vegas has more severe problems, given that the Knights cannot count on two top forwards at once in the upcoming match - Stone and Pacioretty. This is another reason the Golden Knights won't beat the Rangers here. After Carolina, the second-best visiting team of the East will come to visit the Knights, who are weakly performing at home—also headed by former Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant. Prediction: the Rangers are likely to win.
