Las Vegas (15-14-1-1) at Fresno (20-10-2-2)
Jan. 23, 2020 Fresno, CA Gateway Ice Center Thursday: 7:15 pm
Stream: Black Dog Hockey
$10: Walk-ups only
Las Vegas will be eager to get themselves out of the five-game slump they are currently in. But they will need to get by the Fresno Monsters, at Gateway Ice Center, who have only lost two games at home.
Adding fuel to the fire, the Thunderbirds have been shutout in their previous two games. Having said that, Fresno is also looking to bounce back from two losses. Las Vegas is already fresh off a trip from Fresno when they played there two weeks ago.
In those games, Fresno successfully defended home ice with a pair of wins essentially starting the five-game slump for the T-Birds. They were able to put up six goals against the Monsters despite losing their top four scorers in a recent trade.
It will be a different feeling as this time the game won’t be at the flashy Selland Arena.
