Vegas vs Colorado: prediction for the NHL preseason match
Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas showed excellent performance last season and were one point shy of topping the Western Division standings. In the playoffs, the Golden Knights almost got eliminated in the first round but got a strong-willed victory over Minnesota with 4 wins against 3 defeats. The Knights were stopped by Montreal in the semifinals.
In the first preseason match, Vegas went against San Jose and were defeated with a score of 2:4. Goaltender Thompson acted unreliably and stopped only 85% of the shots. During the offseason, the main goaltender Fleury left Vegas and the Knights find it hard to replace him.
Colorado were the strongest in the Western Division last season. They finished top of the table and reached the quarterfinals of the playoffs. The Avalanche lost the quarterfinal series to Vegas with 2 victories against 4 defeats.
During the offseason, several players left the club, for example, the main goaltender Grubauer moved to Seattle, and one of the top scorers Saad moved to St. Louis.
The teams scored in each period in 3 head-to-head games in a row.
In 3 head-to-head matches in a row, Colorado scored first.
Vegas looked poor in the first game of the preseason. The team showed weak defensive play, and couldn't create enough scoring chances. Colorado remain one of the favorites in the West, and we will play their victory in the upcoming fixture.
