The Vegas Golden Knights will play game three of a four-game road trip Saturday afternoon against the Detroit Red Wings. The VGK will play at Little Ceasars Arena, one of the newer arenas in the NHL. The Golden Knight's own Gary Lawless asked members of the team their thoughts on the arena.

"It's cool even with it being a new rink; they have a lot of stuff on the walls that show what they have done. I was pretty fortunate to play at the Joe (Joe Louis Arena) my first couple of years, so that was definitely special," said Golden Knights defenseman Shea Theodore.

LCA is at the top of my list in terms of the arenas I want to visit the most. It's a shame I was too young to ever experience Joe Louis.

Elsewhere in the NHL, Bruins broadcaster Jack Edwards has apologized for some of his comments, Brady Tkachuk had an eventful night, and the Golden Knight's defense is at a loss without Alex Pietrangelo.
