Washington at Vegas

1.5 units on Vegas -140 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.57) RESULT: WIN
Vegas has started to regain the magic of its incredible inaugural season and it has won five of its last six games and Marc-Andre Fleury has been spectacular in recent outings while William Karlsson looks to score a goal in his fifth consecutive game, which would match the longest streak of his career. The Golden Knights have killed off 14 of their last 15 power plays and tonight they face the team that beat them to win the Stanley Cup, which gives them a huge motivational edge. Washington snapped a seven-game winning streak and blew a 5-1 lead in a 6-5 loss at home to Anaheim on Sunday. Braden Holtby was the victim of all six goals to raise his goals-against average to 2.94 and his save percentage now is .910. Fleury owns a .913 save percentage and 2.38 GAA and he hasn't allowed more than three goals his last seven starts. Vegas is 42-18 its last 60 home games and it has won five straight after scoring two or fewer goals its previous game. Play the Golden Knights.
