After a week filled with returning players and coaches, the Vegas Golden Knights have an interesting upcoming schedule. They take on the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday at home at 7:00 pm. They then have a six-day break before they face the Pittsburgh Penguins. This gap is a result of the team’s two games against the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers getting postponed due to COVID-19.
