Vegas Golden Knights vs Boston Bruins Game Preview 12/5/2022

By

The Vegas Golden Knights head to Boston for a matchup with the Bruins. Puck-drop between the two teams is scheduled for 7pm EST.

The Golden Knights enter this contest with a record of 18-7-1 and are leading the Western Conference at the moment. Boston enters with a record of 20-3 and will be looking for another home victory. The Bruins are currently on a NHL-record, season opening winning home streak of 15 games.

Despite this, the Golden Knights enter the matchup with a league best 23 points on the road. This should be a heavyweight fight between two of the top teams around the NHL.

It’s a return for the Golden Knights head coach Bruce Cassidy, who led the bruins for six seasons. He becomes a visitor for the first time and emotions will be running high for him.

Vegas will likely need to take down the Bruins without the services of their leading scorer, Jack Eichel. He is a game-time decision with an injury and during morning skate, didn’t feel all that great according to Cassidy.

Prediction: Boston Bruins 4, Vegas Golden Knights 3 (OT)

This has the makings of a back and forth contest. I lean towards the Bruins grabbing another home win here. I like them to squeak out a overtime win tonight.
