The Vegas Golden Knights are back in action and the Anaheim Ducks are set for a rematch against the first team they faced off against this season.

After taking a break due to an outbreak of COVID-19 on the coaching staff, the Golden Knights returned to sweep their series against the Los Angeles Kings this past weekend. Even without top defender Alex Pietrangelo in the lineup, they were able to secure both victories, scoring nine goals over the course of two games.

Scoring goals was a bit of an issue when these teams saw each other last — Anaheim scored just three goals total last time, losing 5-2 in Game 1 and 2-1 in overtime in Game 2. This wins this season have largely been tight games, within one goal. A high-powered team like Vegas presents a challenge, particularly if we’re to believe this team is meant to be competitive.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in tonight:
