Wild face Knights, looking to add to push for playoffs

Two of the hottest teams in the NHL collide on Thursday night when the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights travel to Saint Paul, Minn., to play the Minnesota Wild.

It's the fourth game of a five-game road trip for the Golden Knights (39-24-8, 86 points), who decided to fly home for a day-and-a-half after completing a back-to-back sweep of Calgary (5-3) and Edmonton (3-2 in OT) on Monday night before flying back to Minnesota after practice on Wednesday.

Defenseman Shea Theodore scored the game-winner at 2:13 of overtime to defeat the Connor McDavid-less Oilers and improve Vegas to 11-2-0 over its last 13 games.
