Golden Knights Gameday 2: The Golden Age: Lines and Notes vs Blackhawks



Vegas Golden Knights Chicago Blackhawks HOME

Welcome to the Golden Age, Vegas Golden Knights fans.

The currently undefeated Golden Knights (1-0-0, 2 points) will play their second game of the season on home ice against the Chicago Blackhawks (0-1-0, 0 points) at 7:00 pm.

After three years of absence, the Golden Carpet will make a return to Toshiba Plaza before the game starting at 3:30 pm. Fans can line up to meet players on their way inside T-Mobile Arena.

What to Watch For

Fashion Sense– First and foremost, we have to analyze who the best-dressed member of the Vegas Golden Knights is at the Gold Carpet. Paul Cotter says he will be wearing his fedora. William Karlsson no longer has the long hair. Which member of the VGK will dress the best?

Called up Cotter– Despite having a full-healthy forward group with Will Carrier back, head coach Bruce Cassidy will keep Paul Cotter in the lineup over Michael Amadio. He will be playing on a line with Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson, which is a huge test for the young forward.

Hello HagueNic Hague will make his season debut with the VGK after missing game one due to travel. The Golden Knights recently signed the former RFA defenseman to a three-year extension. Cassidy says there is, of course, concern with Hague being 100% ready for the season after he missed training camp.

“He’s going to have some work to do (catching up on systems) no matter when he goes in,” said Cassidy.

Goaltending– A thing to watch all season for the Golden Knights will be the team’s goaltending with Robin Lehner out for the season. Logan Thompson is expected to play against the Blackhawks. Cassidy stated Thursday that the team has a plan for the goalie rotation throughout the month of October.

I was a competitive runner and made the EXACT same mistake that ARIELLE did!
Unfortunately, I am suffering from permanent consequences.
I have modified my exercise program substantially.
Instead of 20 minute to two hour runs a day and one hour workouts in the gym, I am doing light weight lifting, running on the spot and exercises I learned at my retirement home for 33 minutes every day early in the morning.
I combine that with long walks.
I do get a MEDIUM ENDORPHIN HIGH rather than an EXTREME ENDORPHIN HIGH when I was competing.
I was a GUINEA PIG for a company that tried to cut costs for janitorial position for a VERY LARGE AREA.
MULTIPLE janitors should have been hired!
I developed SEVERE TENNIS ELBOW after 10 months of work.
The directions were VAGUE!
APPLY THE CREAM AFTER THE EXERCISE AND COOLING DOWN PERIOD!!,brands%20that%20contain%20methyl%20salicylate.
