Betting Analysis For Vegas Golden Knights at Carolina Hurricanes
Vegas Golden Knights Betting Stats & Analysis
The Vegas Golden Knights took on the Washington Capitals last night in a matchup of two of the league’s best teams. The story of this game was the goaltending from Robin Lehner, who was able to stop all 34 shots on goal and post his first shutout of the season.
The Golden Knights got their lone goal in the second period from Michael Amadio. Only his fourth goal of the season would be good enough to be the game-winner.
The Golden Knights currently have eight players on their injured reserve list. A major injury that the team is dealing with is their veteran Max Pacioretty, who is out until the middle of February with a wrist injury. He is responsible for 12 goals on the season.
One positive for the Golden Knights is they are only dealing with two positive COVID cases.
Chandler Stephenson is having, by far, the best season of his career. Stephenson is leading the team in total points with 38, scoring 12 goals and assisting on 26 others. While he is leading the team with 38 points, that is also the most points Stephenson has acquired in a single season in his career, and they are not even to the All-Star break. The Golden Knights have eight other players with 20 or more total points.
Robin Lehner has been the main goaltender for the Golden Knights. He has a record of 17-11 and is giving up 2.85 goals per game.
After the shutout last night, it will be interesting to see if Lehner gets the start again tonight or if Laurent Brossoit gets the call. He has a record of 8-3-1 and is only giving up 2.78 goals per game.
Carolina Hurricanes Betting Stats & Analysis
The Hurricanes were playing great hockey going into their game Saturday night against the Devils. Both teams got on the board early as the score after the first period was tied 2-2.
The Devils would take the advantage after the second period at 5-4. The third period saw the Devils add two more goals and ultimately take the victory 7-4.
Carolina is in a good spot with their injury report as they only have two players listed. Teuvo Teravainen is currently listed as questionable for tonight’s game with a lower-body injury.
He did not play on Saturday to give his body some rest, so the Hurricanes have to be hopeful he will suit up tonight. Jordan Martinook is listed as out due to COVID.
Sebastian Aho is once again leading the Hurricanes in points. He has recorded a team-high 42 points, with 17 goals and 25 assists. Aho has recorded points in seven of the last 10 for the Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes offense is currently the fourth-best in the NHL, averaging 3.58 goals per game.
Frederik Anderson has been the main goaltender for the Hurricanes this season. He has a 21-6 record and is only giving up 2.03 goals per game.
Anderson has been the catalyst for this team and a big reason why the Hurricanes have been successful this season. On pace for one of the best seasons of his career, Anderson needs to keep up this pace if the Hurricanes are going to make a run in the playoffs.
