Golden Knights eye sweep of Ducks, tie for first in West

The Vegas Golden Knights can move into a first-place tie in the West Division if they can complete a sweep of their back-to-back with the host Anaheim Ducks on Sunday afternoon.

Vegas, which has a five-game winning streak, already has swept nine two-game back-to-backs this season. The Golden Knights enter Sunday's game coming off a dominating 4-0 victory over the Ducks on Friday night and trail first-place Colorado by two points.

Both Vegas and the Avalanche have played 43 of their 56 regular-season games and have 30 victories apiece, the only two teams in the NHL to hit that win mark. But with Colorado in a COVID-related pause until at least Thursday, the Golden Knights, who return home to play San Jose on Monday and Wednesday, are in position to take over the top spot.
