LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Even though there isn't a Golden Knights game tonight, VGK can clinch a playoff spot.

The NHL said the Golden Knights could be the first team to clinch a playoff berth if the Ducks beat the Kings in any way. The Golden Knights have made the playoffs every season since 2017.

Currently, Vegas leads the West Division with 66 points, two points ahead of the Avalanche.

The Ducks play the Kings Tuesday at 7 p.m. The Golden Knights next game is Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. against the Sharks.
