Total of the Week - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #21 Tuesday 10* Top Play OVER the total in New Jersey Devils vs Vegas Golden Knights @ 7:05 ET - Tough goaltending situation for each team here because they are in a back to back and they are extenuating circumstances with the back to back for each team. The Devils had to use both goalies last night because their starter was so ineffective that tonight's planned starter MacKenzie Blackwood had to come in to try and salvage the night. As it was New Jersey still got crushed last night and now their in a situation where they used both netminders last night. As for the Golden Knights, Marc-Andre Fleury's return to the team is imminent but their prized netminder is mourning the loss of his father and that is why he has had time away from the team. Malcolm Subban was in goal last night and that means options tonight would be a mourning Fleury, a tired Subban, or Garrett Sparks. Note that the latter netminder has struggled but could be called upon here and you can see why all three options are concerning for the Golden Knights. I like the over here because I am sure that the Devils will respond on home ice here after the 7-1 shellacking they took last night but I am also sure that the Golden Knights are going to score plenty following their 4-1 win over the Rangers in New York last night. That said, there should be plenty of goals tonight with both teams likely to struggle to keep the puck out of their own net. Vegas has scored 4 goals in each of its past two road games. The Devils have scored an average of 5 goals per game in their past 3 games against the Golden Knights. 10* OVER the total in New Jersey
