Knights, Predators to tangle in final game before break

The Nashville Predators and Vegas Golden Knights both head into an eight-day break following Wednesday night's game in Las Vegas. And with both teams involved in mini-slumps, a victory at T-Mobile Arena would make the time off a lot more enjoyable for one of them.

That's particularly true for the defending Western Conference champion Golden Knights, who are just 2-3 in their last five games, including rare regulation home losses to San Jose and Minnesota. Vegas, which going into Tuesday's action was seven points behind first-place Calgary and one point behind second-place San Jose in the Pacific Division, embarks on a difficult four-game East Coast road trip after the break.

Nashville, which is 2-4 in its last six games, could move into a tie for first place with Winnipeg with a victory, although the Jets will have four games in hand when they return to action after the All-Star break.
