Chicago Blackhawks Vs Vegas Golden Knights Live Streaming, Predictions, And More
By Keith Schultz
The Chicago Blackhawks are making their first trip to Las Vegas to play a hockey game, when they face-off against the Golden Knights tonight.
Normally when you are facing an expansion franchise you think it’s an easy 2 points and a chance to pad your offensive stats, but this expansion team is a little different from other teams that were constructed in the past.
The Vegas Knights were built on defense and goaltending, and just enough offense. The problem with their goalies is that they keep getting hurt. Both Marc Andre-Fleury and Malcolm Subban have been placed on injured reserve so the Hawks will be facing a goalie they have never seen before.
The Chicago Blackhawks goalies have also been very strong on a nightly basis early on this season. Corey Crawford has a .945 save percentage, and a 1.86 goals against average through 7 starts which tops the NHL. With the Hawks struggling a bit on offense they will need Crawford to continue to be solid in between the pipes.

It would be nice to see the Hawks jump out to a quick lead against the Golden Knights so they could dictate the play instead of the game turning into a boring defensive struggle. The question for every fan base this season will be did their team have too much fun on the road before game night in Vegas.

My Predictions are a little out of whack so we won’t relive my Coyotes predictions so I will just start fresh with tonight’s game. I think this will be a pretty tight low scoring affair with the Hawks scoring a late third period goal for a 3-2 win.
Three Stars Predictions
#3 Star- James Neal-1 Goal
#2 Star- Brent Seabrook -2 Assists
#1 Star- Patrick Kane 1 Goal 1 Assist
