T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will play host to the first ever meeting between the Boston Bruins and the Vegas Golden Knights.
The Knights became the first ever NHL expansion team to start their inaugural campaign 3-0-0, and they enter this matchup with the B’s at 3-1-0.
The Bruins, meanwhile, are 2-2-0 after an impressive 6-2 road win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night. Young right winger David Pastrnak tallied a goal and an assist, while captain and No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara scored a goal and picked up two assists.
Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is injured and unavailable Sunday, so it looks like former Bruins first-round draft pick Malcolm Subban will start in net for the Knights. He was waived by the Bruins before the regular season.
Here are the projected lineups for both teams.
