Knights Nuggets: The Monday after the Super Bowl needs to be a national holiday

Start off your morning by reading up on some news and notes from Vegas and around the NHL.

Let’s go over some news and notes:

- The Golden Knights lost their fourth straight game the other night and people are starting to get pretty nervous. [KOI]

- The second period hasn’t been too kind to the Golden Knights recently, and that’s killed them. [Las Vegas Review-Journal]

- If the Knights end up losing Kelly McCrimmon to the new Seattle franchise (or another team), the backup plan is simple — just clone him! []

In other news...

- The Penguins traded Derick Brassard, who helped beat the Knights in his debut with the Panthers. Because of course. [Litter Box Cats]

- Florida probably has a lot more planned in terms of trades, though. The next few weeks will be very interesting. [The Athletic]

- You may want to get a box of tissues before you watch this. Well done, Maple Leafs.
