The Vegas Golden Knights rough go with injuries and players being placed in COVID-19 protocols has led to a lot of movement between the players. I’m sure some of these players didn’t think they’d get an opportunity, little lone a starting job.

The Vegas Golden Knights are back tonight after getting two days off. The Knights are coming off a good win against the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning. With that win, the Knights are going to be ready to come out and get another win tonight as they take on the Buffalo Sabres.

The struggle the Knights have had this year is consistency. Seems like if the goalie isn’t playing top notch, then we lose. However, with this game there should be some extra motivation from the locker room given the nature of this game.

For those of you who don’t already know, the Vegas Golden Knights had made a big trade early on this season to acquire a superstar by the name of Jack Eichel. That trade was a big move by McCrimmon and the rest of the Golden Knights front office. However, it came at a price.

In order to acquire a superstar as talented as Jack Eichel, you have to give something up as well. So with that being said, the Vegas Golden Knights had traded away Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs.

Tonight, Tuch and Krebs will return to T-Mobile Arena as they look to get their revenge on the Golden Knights. But for now, let’s take a look at some of the injured players status’ prior to the game.
