How will the Red Wings stack up against Vegas?

Vegas has reached the playoffs in each of their four seasons in the NHL.  This season should also include a deep run in the playoffs and possibly their first Stanley Cup Championship.  The Golden Knights may even be better this year than they were last year when they won 40 of 56 games.  Look for Vegas to sweep the two game series with the Red Wings.
