Tonight in net confirmed for COL is Kuemper and expected is Lehner for VGS. Kuemper has not had the season he had hoped to this point. He comes in with a 2-2 record, 3.51 GAA and a 89.4 SV%. Tonight should be a good night for him to get back on track. VGS comes in beat up badly! They Are without Stone, Pacioretty, Martinez, Tuch, and Whitecloud. They will continue to struggle until they get healthy. COL has also struggled this season and they have not started how they expected to. MacKinnon is back and starting to get into the swing of things again. I expect COL to figure out their groove tonight and hand Vegas their 5th loss. Another thing to keep in mind with this game is that these two have quickly become rivals. Expect COL to give this game everything they got. For our Player Highlight tonight we will take a look at Mikko Rantanen. Rantanen is one of the best forwards in the league! He finished last year with 66 points of which 30 were goals. He has started this season out strong even though the Avs have not. So far this season he has 5 points in their 5 games. A major part of Colorado’s success will be hinged on Rantanen’s play. He has a great matchup tonight against Vegas who is shorthanded. Look for Rantanen to finish the game tonight with at least a point.
