Daily Nuggets: Golden Knights HUGE Game 3, Bruins to Blow it Up?
GMs have been fired, and coaches have been removed. The NHL off-season is off to a roiling start, and the Boston Bruins might well dismantle the greatest regular season team in history. The NHL trade rumors are percolating in Boston. The Vegas Golden Knights face a critical Game 3 tonight in Edmonton, and the NHL Draft Lottery will reveal which team gets the coveted first-overall pick and phenom, Connor Bedard.
I hope you’ve been enjoying my coverage of the Vegas Golden Knights, we’re about set to announce our permanent replacement. Though I’m enjoying Vegas so much, I might never leave. The National Hockey Now network is also set to announce a few more new cities, too.
Vegas Golden Knights:
John Fogerty may have said it best. There may not be any earthquakes or lightning, but after a couple of games, there are bad moons rising for the Golden Knights.
They MUST split in Edmonton. Stopping the Edmonton power play wouldn’t hurt, either.
