Tonight’s Action

Colorado Avalanche at Vegas Golden Knights

Watch: 10 p.m. ET, NHL Network

Odds: Knights -110, Avalanche -104 || O/U 6

Pick: Colorado always plays the Knights tough, but Vegas is difficult to beat at home (8-1-1). Goaltending has been strong for both teams. Don’t overthink this one: take the Golden Knights at a discount and the under.
