The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Las Vegas Golden Knights will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at T-Mobile Arena.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (16-13-3): Phil Kessel extended his point streak to five games (four goals, one assist) after scoring his team-leading 15th goal with 12 seconds remaining in a 2-1 loss against Colorado on Monday. The 30-year-old has recorded at least a point in 25 of 32 games this season. Fellow forward Evgeni Malkin set up Kessel against the Avalanche to increase his point streak to six, during which he has two goals and five assists.

ABOUT THE GOLDEN KNIGHTS (19-9-2): Fleury isn’t the only former Penguin in this game, as alternate captain Deryk Engelland spent parts of his first five NHL seasons in the Steel City. The 35-year-old defenseman scored a goal early in the second period versus Carolina and has two points in his last four contests following a nine-game point drought. Reilly Smith scored in back-to-back contests to give him four points (three goals, one assist) in six games in December while fellow forward Erik Haula has three goals and as many assists during his four-game point streak.

Oddsmakers opened the Penguins as -110-moneyline favorites versus the Golden Knights, while the game’s total opened at 6.

Marc-Andre Fleury plans to turn it up a notch on Thursday when he leads the Golden Knights into T-Mobile Arena to face the team with which he won three Stanley Cups and spent the first 13 seasons of his NHL career. The 33-year-old enters the much-anticipated reunion with the Pittsburgh Penguins after returning from a two-month absence due to a concussion with 35 saves in Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Carolina.

“I still have a lot of friends on the team. That would be nice to see them, try to do good,” said Fleury, who was selected by Vegas in the expansion draft in June. “They’re a good team. The Cup champs, it’s a good challenge for our team. I’d like to do my part to beat them.” The Golden Knights have answered a three-game skid with a 4-0-1 mark to keep the heat on Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles. Pittsburgh, however, has dropped two in a row and three of four on the heels of a four-game winning streak. Matt Murray, Fleury’s understudy and eventual successor, was activated from injured reserve on Tuesday and will roll the dice as the Penguins open a three-game road trip in Vegas.

Las Vegas lost its last outing, a 3-2 result against the Hurricanes on December 12. Bettors who backed the Hurricanes at +151 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Penguins were a 2-1 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Avalanche. That made winners of bettors who got Colorado at +191 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.
