Episode 40 of the Knights Nation Podcast was supposed to be special. The 40th episode unfortunately comes after a tough season ending loss for our Vegas Golden Knights. This weeks Podcast is unique in that my intro is the only audio I will be adding and little to NO editing. 

I had a tough time deciding when and how I would record this episode. All the time and energy I spent this year on the podcast I could not generate the energy or drive to record this podcast until now. Yesterday would have resulted in an extremely angry podcast and nobody needs to listen to that. Just had to wait, calm down and relax. The fact I recorded this weeks episode outside in the backyard by the pool sure did help!

No segments this week well "Nacho Lady" did make a guest appearance in a sorta What the Puck segment at the end.

Podcast schedule will be inconsistent during this summer but I plan to be back with weekly episodes during the 2019-20 NHL season.

What’s On Tap:

Final week of the regular season and the Golden Knights have a Home game against Edmonton on Monday knight and Thursday against the Arizona Coyotes and finally end the season Saturday night in Los Angeles to take on the kings. All three teams we face are out of the playoffs. Vegas needs to be smart and get healthy and make sure we are ready for the playoffs. If that means giving guys rest so be it if it means getting tune up games for players like flower OK fine. I’m not going in depth on match ups with teams that this time next week will have cleaned out their lockers and have started their off season. They will be fun and exciting games for sure but please remember it is all preparation for the playoffs. If you see people out of the lineup rest is a good thing especially this time of the year. I know we had a chance at home ice against SJ if we would have won a few games but honestly I would rather be healthy. It’s the cards we were dealt.
