Golden Knights take on white-hot Flames

After snapping a two-game losing skid in emphatic fashion - Friday's seven-goal outburst over the Arizona Coyotes -- the Vegas Golden Knights return home Sunday night to face the Calgary Flames with renewed confidence.

That said, the Flames and Coyotes are diametrically opposed, and not just because of the weather they generally experience in December. The Golden Knights were certainly full marks for their 7-1 win in Glendale, Ariz., but that was against the worst team in the Western Conference, largely owing to its poor defense.

The Flames, meantime, are atop the West standings, and are on an 8-1-1 run. They possess the stingiest defensive squad in the league, allowing just 2.0 goals per game.
