With the Pacific Division title and a playoff spot, the Vegas Golden Knights have had fans in awe.

Upcoming stories from the Vegas Golden Knights vs. Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs at T-Mobile Arena. The ones that did get through, he made some spectacular saves, going from side to side on a couple of attempts.

Kings starter Jonathan Quick only played 17 games for his club last season due to injury. The Kings, meanwhile, are looking to prove they are more than just a wild card team during this postseason run, and maybe even regain the glory of 2014 and 2012. "I know the swings that you go through, good and bad".

The Kings, who entered with a combined 928 games of playoff experience, outhit the Golden Knights, 68-59.

The cries of Vegas' size and strength shortcomings are certain to get a second wind when the Kings inevitably trip up the Golden Knights at some point in the series. An experienced Los Angeles Kings group, led by Hart Trophy contender Anze Kopitar, isn't going to be anxious about facing the division's top team.

The Golden Knights opened as -155 favorites (wager $155 to win $100); the total is at 5.5 goals, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.
