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.
