Dec. 8 at Vegas Golden Knights
The Dallas Stars will enter Sin City on the second Wednesday of December and we expect a large spotlight. We’re talking a potential ESPN Wednesday Night Hockey type of spotlight. The puck is slated to drop at 7 pm CT.
The Stars play the Knights for first time on November 27th in Dallas. However, we are underlining the December 8th contest because the Stars will be in hostile territory. We believe Vegas remains the team to beat in the Western Conference. And, if Dallas wants back into the Stanley Cup Finals, they must be capable of beating the Knights in Vegas.
Vegas experienced an interesting offseason, having traded Marc-André Fleury to Chicago and Ryan Reaves to the Rangers. The Fluery deal freed up some cap space needed to bolster their offense. The Reaves trade remains somewhat of a head-scratcher because he represented their bruising style of play that has provided so many playoff series advantages.
Blackout Dallas could not be any more excited to see the Stars square off against a more finesse Golden Knights roster. Did we mention Dallas will have 6-5, 207-pound Jani Hakanpää with them?
