I’ll be honest, given that I just moved here a few months ago, this is my first ever Nevada Day. From what I understand, it’s a simple holiday where Nevadans celebrate the state’s admission into the Union. I’m just curious why there is no Pennsylvania Day or other state days, for that matter.
The day will be jam-packed with hockey from both the Silver and Golden Knights. The Silver Knights play at 11:00 a.m. against the Colorado Eagles, and the Golden Knights play the Anaheim Ducks at 3:00 p.m.
Both teams will be wearing special jerseys as a part of Nevada Day and also for first responders day. Fans are encouraged to wear white as the Golden Knights will be wearing their road jerseys at home against the Ducks.
