Avalanche vs. Golden Knights, Game 36: Lines, Notes & How to Watch

Published

on

The end of 2022 was not very kind to the Colorado Avalanche.

They hope 2023 starts better.

Coming off a tough 6-2 defeat to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Avalanche hope to bounce back in the last game of their three game home stand.

Although they lost, Saturday night marked the return of superstar Nathan MacKinnon. He didn’t factor into the scoring at all, but his presence in the lineup helped spread things out for the Avalanche and will no doubt improve their chances moving forward.

On Monday night, they’ll look to end their three game losing streak.

They will get a lineup boost, as veteran Darren Helm will make his season debut and Martin Kaut will return

The Vegas Golden Knights are coming off a 5-4 overtime win on New Years Eve over the Nashville Predators. They’re currently dealing with injuries of their own, much like the Avalanche, but sit atop the Pacific Division with 52 points.

This is the second matchup between the two teams this season.
