NBC Sports presents three NHL games this week, highlighted by the Vegas Golden Knights' inaugural home-opener at 10 p.m. tonight, as Marc-Andre Fleury and the Knights play host to rookie Clayton Keller and the Arizona Coyotes at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Two of the league's biggest stars face off on "Wednesday Night Rivalry," when Sidney Crosby and the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins take on Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena at 7:30 p.m. on NBCSN.
Liam McHugh will anchor studio coverage on-site from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, as "NHL Live" surrounds the Golden Knights' inaugural home game. Pre-game coverage will include a feature on UNLV assistant hockey coach Nick Robone, who was injured in during the Las Vegas mass shooting, as well as an interview with Knights' defenseman Deryk Engelland. Coverage on NBCSN will also include pre-game ceremonies in Vegas prior to puck drop. Kathryn Tappen will host from Stamford with Jeremy Roenick and Anson Carter.
Alex Faust (play-by-play) and Emmy Award-winner Pierre McGuire ("Inside-the-Glass" analyst) call Knights-Coyotes. Five-time Emmy Award-winner Mike "Doc" Emrick (play-by-play), former NHL player, coach and general manager Mike Milbury (analyst), and McGuire will call the Capitals-Penguins' "Wednesday Night Rivalry" game from Capital One Arena.
The Golden Knights started their inaugural season with two road wins, including a 2-1 overtime win in Arizona on Saturday. James Neal scored the game-deciding goal in both of the team's wins, including the game-winner on Saturday. Neal's three goals this season rank tied for fifth in the NHL.
Through two games, defenseman Alex Goligoski leads the Coyotes in both points (3) and assists (3). Arizona dropped its first game of the season in Anaheim by a score of 5-4. Tuesday's contest marks the second of five games Arizona is slated to play against Vegas this season.
