Trading for forward Mattias Janmark on Monday will help — he should offer some middle six punch — but the Golden Knights already featured a championship roster.
Things got ornery fast, as Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves leveled Arizona defenseman Jordan Gross to the ice at 12:35 of the first period with a shoulder to the head.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25-of-27 shots Saturday but the Golden Knights fell to Minnesota 2-1.
That UNLV team was ranked No. 1 all season and had just one game decided by fewer than 10 points. Three of the NBA’s top 12 draft picks that year played for Jerry Tarkanian.
New defensive coordinator Gus Bradley needs what team doesn’t have — Mike Trout in shoulder pads.
The former UNLV basketball coach is retiring to Las Vegas, where he will watch son Kevin take over the Rebels program while trying to inspire a fan base.
It’s not just that the Knights defeated Colorado 3-2 in overtime Saturday. It’s how they won. Playing their way.
Kevin Kruger was among the first to enter the transfer portal when he transferred from Arizona State to UNLV in 2006, so he’s familiar with what has become a major pipeline for talent.
The hire by UNLV’s Desiree Reed-Francois is a gamble. When you hand the keys of a program to a coach who has never sat in the lead chair, unknowns outweigh certainties.
Kevin Kruger, who led the Rebels to an NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 while playing for his father, was named the program’s new head coach on Sunday.
It’s the most fascinating manner in which to watch the NCAA Tournament, existing among hundreds of fans cheering scores more than teams. March Madness had returned to Las Vegas.
Free agency officially commenced Wednesday, where the Raiders added needed help on the defensive line.
How things might play out for a very different March Madness in Indiana will be drama worth watching.
