After the Vegas Golden Knights/San Jose Sharks game Sunday night there was an incident involving a bomb scare. Police dogs smelled something suspicious in an outside locker which was believed to be a bomb. Security then investigated the package that was outside of SAP Center in San Jose.
Our very own Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now had to wait two and a half hours to leave the arena while everything was getting worked out. Thankfully, there were no explosions and at 10:30 pm a city of San Jose spokesman just told SJHN that SAP Center was “all clear” and that “nothing suspicious was located in the locker.”
Anyways outside of this incident, Sunday evening’s game against the Sharks went well for the Golden Knights. They defeated their Pacific Division rival 4-1 and snapped their three-game losing streak. Jack Eichel scored his first goal as a Golden Knight and Logan Thompson won his first NHL game.
Injury Update: Zach Whitecloud is back at practice in a full-contact jersey.
Vegas: Here are your six takeaways from Sunday night’s game. This may be a premature question but with Thompson do the Golden Knights even need Laurent Brossoit anymore as a backup?
The Eichel Tower- for those of you unfamiliar is a puck tower originally created by a Buffalo Sabres fan which has now been passed over to the Golden Knights fanbase thanks to SinBin Vegas. After a long drought, the Eichel Tower has finally resumed construction with career goal no. 140.
First one as a Golden Knight!
