How to watch today's Vegas Golden Knights vs Anaheim Ducks NHL game: Live stream, TV channel and game info

The final day of the NHL regular season brings us a matchup between a pair of Pacific Division foes on the ice in Sin City as the Vegas Golden Knights (45-28-8, seventh in the Western Conference) play host to the Anaheim Ducks (26-50-5, 14th) on Thursday night.

The Ducks are set to close out another disappointing campaign on Thursday night as they fell to 2-7-1 in their last 10 games after losing 3-1 on the road to Los Angeles on Saturday night. They sit seventh in the Pacific Division, 52 points behind leaders Vancouver. Their playoff dreams ended long ago.

Vegas, meanwhile, won their third game on the bounce with a 3-1 success over the Chicago Blackhawks at home on Tuesday night. The Golden Knights were third in the Pacific Division on Wednesday, 11 points behind leaders the Canucks. They are one point ahead of the Kings for the final guaranteed playoff spot, so a win or a Kings defeat would seal the deal.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch the game, including what TV channel to watch it on, streaming details, and more.
