The rivalry between the San Jose Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights grows intense by the minute. Bad blood is evident amongst the players especially after last season’s postseason display as the Sharks knocked off the Golden Knights in seven games.
Forget about the Los Angeles Kings being a rivalry. The dislike between San Jose and Vegas will be on full display with the NHL scheduling back-to-back contests between the Pacific Division combatants. Expect these two teams to be jockeying for the division title throughout the year.
Preseason is generally a chance for coaches and management to gauge players in the organization to see who could potentially be a valuable asset in the lineup down the line.
