January 19th, Vegas Golden Knights @ Florida Panthers, 7:30 PM
After Calgary, Florida has an entire week off before the Vegas Golden Knights ride into the BB&T center for the first time on the 19th of January. Vegas boasts the best record in the Western conference with an incredible 60 points in early January.
This could definitely be considered a revenge game for the Panthers. When the teams first met on December 17, Florida blew an early two-goal lead, and lost 5-2. Also, it was Vegas that took Reilly Smith and Jonathan Marchessault, as well as former head coach Gerard Gallant.
It would be very nice for the Cats to emphatically prove that they have moved on from those three losses against MIN, DET, and CBJ, by beating the Knights in Sunrise. One glimmer of hope is that Vegas has been good but beatable on the road with a record of 11-8-1 as visitors this season.
