I haven't posted since last year, so let's jump straight into what's happening around the Vegas Golden Knights and the greater NHL.
Vegas Golden Knights
2022: The best Vegas Golden Knights moments of 2022.
Vegas: The Golden Knights allowed the Nashville Predators to force overtime, but were able to regroup and win in overtime on New Year's Eve.
Postgame: Nicolas Hague stepped up with a depleted Golden Knights defense, scoring a "Hagerbomb" in overtime for the winner.
YT: We tried a new angle in the 60-Second Golden Knights Recap. Let us know if yinz like it visually/audio-wise.
Silly: A compilation of #ExpressiveMarkStone. Here's to more of Stone's reactions in 2023!
Another Look: No word yet from the NHL regarding Brayden McNabb's hit on Mark Jankowski. McNabb got a game misconduct for the hit but could receive additional discipline from the NHL's Department of Player Safety. Again, no word yet.
Looking back on the hit, while McNabb has a good reputation for laying clean (but big) hits, this one is a little high and was called correctly. Given McNabb's good reputation and that he is not a repeat offender, I doubt he will get a suspension, which is huge for the VGK's injured defense. Stay tuned.
Clip of the Day: Let's see that Haguerbomb in overtime once more.
