John Gibson (0-1-0, .857 SV%, 4.18 GAA) vs. Robin Lehner (1-0-0, .909 SV%, 2.00 GAA)
Expect the 27-year-old Gibson back in net for the Ducks Saturday. He allowed 4 goals on 28 shots Thursday but will continue to make the lion’s share of starts. He went 1-2-1 in four games against Vegas last season.
Lehner wasn’t overly tested Thursday but got the job done with only 2 goals allowed to Ducks LW Maxime Comtois within a four-minute stretch in the second period. He figures to have plenty of goal support all season.

Ducks at Golden Knights: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks
Golden Knights 6, Ducks 2
Money line (ML)
The GOLDEN KNIGHTS (-250) are a fine play with the odds representing an implied win probability of 71.43%. Vegas is a much better and more talented team up and down the ice. Twelve different players had at least 1 point Thursday, while Anaheim is much thinner in the talent department and is outmatched by Vegas on all four lines.
The Golden Knights had 24 scoring chances to 18 for the Ducks in the season-opener, according to NaturalStatTrick.com. Gibson is capable of stealing games for the cellar-dwelling Ducks from time-to-time, but not many of those will come against true Stanley Cup contenders like the Knights.
Against the spread (ATS)
Ncaa Hockey Vegas Odds Nfl Week 10
Get a better value with the GOLDEN KNIGHTS -1.5 (+115) by backing to win by at least 2 goals. The alternate line of -2.5 (+200) is also in play, though it may require another empty-net goal late in the game.
The Knights beat the Ducks twice by a 5-2 score last season with another win by a 6-5 count in overtime and a 4-3 loss.

Take the OVER 6 (-105). The Ducks don’t have a defensive line capable of shutting down the Golden Knights’ top forwards.
The two teams combined for 7 goals Thursday with just one power-play opportunity for either side. A less-disciplined effort should see a few more tallies in the rematch.
