1. Good: Golden Knights holding tough despite missing key players.
It's no secret that the Las Vegas Golden Knights have had their share of bad luck this season. It almost seemed like it was piling on at one point. In fact, between Marc Andre Fleury going on the Covid-19 reserve list, Robin Lehner dealing with ongoing concussion issues, and Alex Pietrangelo out with pectoral problems, it felt like the team was doomed to implode. Of course, they did to a degree, dropping three of their last ten games, but they minimized the damage in a way that few other teams would have been able to.
Furthermore, the Golden Knights are still division leaders and still have one of the most unstoppable goalie combinations in the NHL. It's going to be very hard to take this team down in the playoffs.
