The Vegas Golden Knights are one of the top teams in the Western Conference, specifically the Pacific Division. On Saturday, they took on the Buffalo Sabres, who are near the bottom of the Atlantic Division. The Golden Knights were hoping to hold onto second place in the Pacific Division after the Edmonton Oilers jumped them with a win over Seattle. Unfortunately, that was not the case as the Sabres took over from the beginning and sealed a huge victory over the Golden Knights. It was a rare blowout for the defending Stanley Cup champions.
