Golden Knights Gameday

Golden Knights Gameday 10: Hallows Eve: Lines and Notes vs Jets

Published

on

Vegas Golden Knights Winnipeg Jets HOME

It’s Halloween eve, and the Vegas Golden Knights (7-2-0, fourteen points) play the Winnipeg Jets (5-3-0, ten points) Sunday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. The Golden Knights haven’t officially announced any festivities for Halloween, but if you are in the festive spirit, wear your appropriate Halloween costume to the game!

This is the last Golden Knight’s home game until Nov. 12, as they will be on a five-game road trip starting Tuesday against the Washington Capitals.

After missing Friday’s game due to illness, Keegan Kolesar, who practiced Saturday, will likely return. The Golden Knights did not hold practice today, with today’s game being at 5:00 p.m. As a result, we will have to wait until warmups to find out who the team’s starting goaltender will be against the Jets.

What to Watch For

Start Time: The Golden Knights play their second straight game at a unique time Sunday. For Friday’s Nevada Day game, they played at 3:00 p.m. Today they play at 5:00 p.m. Head coach Bruce Cassidy spoke Saturday on how this could have an effect on players’ preparation for the games.

“I think 5:00 is an odd time. Guys typically prepare meetings in the morning, skate, and have a little nap, and then it’s 7:00. So 5:00 can screw up your day, huh? So it’s the same for both teams, so we’ll see how it plays out,” said Cassidy.

Goalie Duel: The health of Laurent Brossoit and Logan Thompson’s 29-save shutout Friday has moved the Golden Knight’s goaltending story along in an interesting way. There is a chance Adin Hill could play Sunday and get a start.

Despite the injury news regarding Robin Lehner, the Golden Knight’s inexperienced goaltending duo has been just fine. They lead the league in save percentage currently with a .940 sv%.

Blocking Shots: A thing that is flying under the radar is the Golden Knight’s ability to block shots early on this season. Under Cassidy’s systems, they are forcing players to the outside and making life easier on both Hill and Thompson.

Alec Martinez (39) is currently second in the league in blocked shots, behind only David Savard (40). Brayden McNabb is seventh with 24 in nine games.

“We’ve grasped the systems pretty good early. Defensively we’ve been pretty good,” said Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb.

The GOLDEN KNIGHTS are LOOKING GOOD!!
As are NEW JERSEY and BOSTON!!
I am sure that NAZEM KADRI is wishing that he were traded to the DEVILS or the BRUINS right now!!
I am wondering how many hockey fans know that the original name of the LAS VEGAS hockey club was going to be: THE BLACK KNIGHTS??!!
Almost 100% of NHL hockey players are millionaires ( I think that EVANDER KANE with his gambling problem is an exception).
I will be one in 2027 DESPITE:
ONLY a $420,000 lifetime gross income for 40 years (1987-2027)!!
Only about 60% of that is EARNED GROSS INCOME!!
NO INHERITANCE or LOTTERY VICTORIES!!
LESSON: Get an EXCELLENT financial planner EARLY!!!!
It would be interesting to point out that my lifetime gross income is what is 60% of what an NHL hockey player would make for just ONE year at minimum wage!!
A GREAT milestone for JOHN TAVARES!!
400 goals is like hitting 700 home runs in baseball!!
ALBERT PUJOLS from the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS would not be able to beat my 45:53 10KM run for males 230 pounds + BUT I could NOT even hit ONE home run in the MAJORS!!
I did hit about 15 home runs in SOFTBALL for the PURE TOUCH SERVICES (carpet and upholstery cleaning) for AUGUST of 1990 and 1991!!
I got the MVP both years!!
Sorry folks.
the PURE TOUCH SERVICES COMPANY in KITCHENER, ONTARIO.
A HAT TRICK OF DISALLOWED GOALS FOR ONE TEAM????!!!
This MUST be a FIRST!!!!!!!!!!
The LEAFS are now 2-1-2 against the THREE best teams in the league!!!
11-5-5 overall!!!
SUNDIN was GREAT!! SANDIN will be GREAT!! SYNDIN, SONDIN, SINDIN, SENDIN and SAINDIN will be GREAT later on!!!
MARNER: Just another FIVE games for consecutive points and he will have the record for most consecutive points for games for a MAPLE LEAF!!

BORJE SALMING RIP.
How many people remember the sign at MAPLE LEAF GARDENS: BORJE WILL NEVER BORE YA!!??

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 go 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.
ARIELLE used BENGAY (33% METHYL SALICYLATE) whereas I used KALAYA (11% METHYL SALICYLATE).
The directions were VAGUE!
DON’t USE THIS MEDICATION WITH A HEATING PAD should have been replaced with: DON’T APPLY BEFORE HEAVY EXERCISE!!
APPLY THE CREAM AFTER THE EXERCISE AND COOLING DOWN PERIOD!!

Now that the NFL CHARGERS have left SAN DIEGO, I believe that it makes more sense for the SHARKS to move from SAN JOSE to SAN DIEGO and join the PADRES!!
BTW, what about KANSAS CITY, PITTSBURGH, CINCINNATI and ST. LOUIS joining the NBA??!!
BOSTON in the NFL??!!
HOUSTON, MILWAUKEE, BALTIMORE, CINCINNATI and (rejoining) CLEVELAND and KANSAS CITY in the NHL??!!
