Golden Knights open tough road stretch against Capitals

After a disappointing eight-game homestand that saw them win just three times, the Vegas Golden Knights begin arguably their most daunting road trip of the season Monday night against Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.

The Golden Knights take a three-point Pacific Division lead with them on a trip that also includes games at Carolina, Florida and two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay. Together the four teams are a combined 60-16-9 on home ice.

"It's exciting," said Vegas forward Keegan Kolesar. "You want to play the best teams in the league. You want to play the best players in the league and see where your team matches up and how you play against them. For us to reach our goal, the Stanley Cup, we're going to have to go through teams like this."
