Surprising Golden Knights face daunting task vs. Blues

(TSX / STATS) -- LAS VEGAS -- The expansion Vegas Golden Knights have been the feel-good story of the first two weeks of the National Hockey League, winning five games and trailing the first-place Los Angeles Kings by just one point in the Pacific Division standings.

Now comes a real litmus test for Gerard Gallant's squad, which hosts the Central Division-leading St. Louis (6-2-0) on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena. Three nights later, the Chicago Blackhawks (4-2-2) pay a visit.

Vegas enters the two-game Western Conference showdown with a glossy 5-1-0 record. However, upon closer inspection, the Golden Knights have defeated just one team with a winning record, the Dallas Stars (4-3-0). Three of the wins came against the Arizona Coyotes (twice) and Buffalo Sabres, who have a combined one victory between them.
