VHN Daily: Brisson Scores in Olympic Debut, Coaching Moves

The Vegas Golden Knights are off for one week and as a result, I have the absolute banger of a song “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies stuck in my head.

This week, as any rest week is, the Golden Knights will look to take advantage and rest up their players. Jack Eichel, Alec Martinez, and Zach Whitecloud all remain out. Mark Stone joined the posse Wednesday as well with an upper-body injury.

But perhaps the most important thing the Golden Knights will look to do over this break is to forget about Wednesday night’s wet fart of a game they had against the Calgary Flames. Defensively the Golden Knights were a mess, giving up six goals and not helping out Robin Lehner at all.

Vegas: Here are eight takeaways from the Golden Knight’s loss Wednesday night. A number that Pittsburgh Sports Now’s Alan Saunders can’t seem to wrap his head around.

Fine, maybe I will change things up a bit! Zero takeaways from the Golden Knights Jack Eichel deal coming soon.

Beijing: Check this out from the Olympics. Golden Knights prospect Brendan Brisson scored in Team USA’s first game against China.

One more thing before we get into the rest of the league. With the state of Nevada’s new policies on masks, the Golden Knights have updated their mask policies for attending home games at T-Mobile Arena.
