Knights seek to rebound against desperate Avs

After a stretch that saw them suffer just one loss over 11 games, the Vegas Golden Knights head into Wednesday night's contest against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver on the heels of back-to-back defeats.

The Golden Knights dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to the Detroit Red Wings at home on Saturday night, and followed that up with a 3-1 loss at the red-hot St. Louis Blues on Sunday night.

Although well-secured for third place in the Pacific Division, Vegas (42-28-6, 90 points) blew a chance to close to within four points of slumping San Jose, which has lost six straight and hosts the Golden Knights on Saturday night. With the division-leading Flames (101 points) likely out of reach, the Sharks (95) and Knights will likely face each other in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, with the better record determining home-ice advantage.
