OK Daily: Golden Knights Lead the Western Conference, COVID Quarantine Reduced



Vegas Golden Knights

The Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Los Angeles Kings last night in a high-scoring affair. With the win, the Golden Knights are now first in both the Pacific Division and in the NHL’s Western Conference.

The NHL announced today that through the new guidelines from the CDC, isolation time for COVID-19 can be reduced to five days if allowed by local health authorities. This could mean that the Golden Knights could get back Evgenii Dadonov, Alex Pietrangelo, Brett Howden, and head coach Peter DeBoer back sooner than expected.

Pittsburgh: The Penguins will not play until at least Sunday night but they have been using this time off to get healthy. Evgeni Malkin, Bryan Rust, and Jake Guentzel could all return soon.

For the first time this season, the line of Rust, Guentzel, and Sidney Crosby could finally be reunited.

Boston: It looks like Tuukka Rask is inching closer to a return to the NHL and the Boston Bruins. Rask will likely start in the American Hockey League with the Providence Bruins.
