LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The Vegas Golden Knights are coming off perhaps their worst performance of the season Monday at Philadelphia. Marc-Andre Fleury will be in net tonight as the Knights hope to finish off this road trip with a win.

The Knights (6-4-0) started out slow against the Flyers (3-3-1), falling behind 5-0 before losing 6-2. Goalie Oscar Dansk made his first start for the Knights this season. Reilly Smith took the team lead in goals with his 7th of the season, Mark Stone leads in points with 12 (6G, 6A).

The Chicago Blackhawks (2-3-1) have struggled early in the season and the Knights hope to take advantage of that. A win tonight would put the Knights at 2-1 on this road trip. They return home Friday for an afternoon game against the Colorado Avalanche (7-1-1). It’s a 3 p.m. start at T-Mobile Arena to honor Nevada Day.
