Preview Of Wings/Golden Knights

03/23/2019 at 3:55pm EDT

from Danny Webster at NHL.com,

Vegas goalie Malcolm Subban will make his fourth consecutive start in place of Marc-Andre Fleury, who is out with a lower body injury. He is 3-0-0 with a goals-against average of 2.00 and a .923 save percentage in his past three starts, including his first NHL shutout in a 5-0 win against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

Golden Knights forward Max Pacioretty will not play after sustaining a lower-body injury against the Jets. He is day-to-day.

The Red Wings have lost 13 of their past 16 games (3-10-3) and are playing the third game of a five-game road trip. Jimmy Howard will start in goal.

Players to watch

Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin has no points in his past four games after scoring 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) in his previous 14.

Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault has seven points (four goals, three assists) in the past three games, and is one point from 200 in the NHL.

They said it

"They got a very good hockey team. They're probably as deep a scoring threats as there is in the league in terms of goal scorers." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill

"It doesn't matter this time of the year. Obviously home-ice advantage is a big thing in the playoffs. … We just want to play the right way right now. It doesn't matter who we face." -- Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
