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

ABOUT THE PANTHERS (12-15-5): James Reimer has raised his level of play since No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo went down with another injury and allowed six goals in the first three games of the road trip on 93 shots. “He knows he needs to be good and step it up, and help this team get where we need to be,” Florida coach Bob Boughner told reporters. “He’s certainly done that in the last couple games.” Center Vincent Trocheck has posted three goals and six assists over the last seven games to tie left wing Jonathan Huberdeau for the team lead with 32 points.

ABOUT THE GOLDEN KNIGHTS (20-9-2): Marc-Andre Fleury has turned aside 59 of the 62 shots he has faced in two games since returning from a concussion that kept him out of action for almost two months. Forward Erik Haula has recorded three goals and four assists during a five-game point streak and former Panther Reilly Smith scored twice in his last three contests. William Karlsson, who has been kept off the scoresheet in three straight contests, and former Panther Jonathan Marchessault (one point, five games) lead the team with 26 points.

Oddsmakers opened the Golden Knights as -160-moneyline favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total opened at 6.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights looked as though they were beginning to fade when December began, but have answered with a six-game point streak as they prepare to host the Florida Panthers on Sunday. Vegas knocked off two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh 2-1 on Thursday for its fourth one-goal victory during an impressive 5-0-1 surge.

“It’s about the guys coming to the rink every day to get better,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “The guys know each other and they’re pretty confident. … As long as we keep competing and battling and working hard we’ll have a good opportunity to win games.” Gallant faces his former team for the first time since he was fired after an 11-10-1 start last season and told the Sun Sentinel, “I loved my time there. I loved my players there. I thought it was going real well. Obviously, other people had different thoughts.” The Panthers have struggled since Gallant was let go (36-41-15), but managed to pick up at least a point in five of the last six games (2-1-3) before Thursday’s 2-1 loss at Colorado. Center Aleksander Barkov takes a six-game point streak into Sunday’s contest after scoring last time out for Florida.

The Golden Knights were a 2-1 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Penguins. That made winners of bettors who got Las Vegas at -109 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Florida was a 2-1 loser on the road against the Avalanche. Bettors on Colorado at -106 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
