Vegas trounced Vancouver in Game 1 and that trend will continue in Game 2. The Golden Knights have won 10 of their last 11 overall and five of their last six head-to-head against the Canucks. Vegas goaltender Robin Lehner came up with a big game in net with a shutout frustrating the Canucks, but it was also the Vegas defense that held the high-scoring Canucks to just 26 shots on goal. Final Score Prediction, Vegas Golden Knights win and cover the puck line 5-3.
