Boston Bruins at Vegas Golden Knights NHL Matchup

Two teams that have advanced to the Stanley Cup Final during the past two seasons, each one coming up short, square off on Tuesday night when the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins face the Vegas Golden Knights in Las Vegas.

Both the Bruins, who lost 4-1 to the St. Louis Blues in Game 7 of the finals in June, and the Golden Knights, who fell in five games to the Washington Capitals in 2018, are off to 2-0 starts and among the favorites to be playing for the Stanley Cup again next spring.

Vegas garnered some revenge by opening the season with two convincing wins over the San Jose Sharks, who eliminated the Knights in seven games in the first round of last year’s Western Conference playoffs.

Boston, which is opening the season on a four-game road trip that will conclude at Colorado on Thursday, followed up a 2-1 victory at Dallas with a 1-0 win at Arizona on Saturday.
