The Boston Bruins have lost their last two games, but they will look to get back in the win column Thursday night against the struggling Vegas Golden Knights.
Boston has picked up a point in each of its last five games (2-0-3) but is coming off a shootout loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night.
The Golden Knights have allowed six goals in each of their past two games, both of which were losses.
These teams met earlier this season, a 3-1 win for the Golden Knights, but Vegas likely will start Maxime Lagace between the pipes, as both Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban are out with injuries.
Tuukka Rask will start in net for the B’s. Rask allowed two goals on 25 shots in the 3-1 loss to Vegas on Oct. 15.
