It’s a match-up Vegas Golden Knights fans have been waiting for. A revenge game vs the San Jose Sharks.
And it will be the home opener at T-Mobile Arena on October 2. It was the Sharks who knocked the Golden Knights out of the playoffs in the first round last season, after a controversial call led to a 5-minute major against the Knights Cody Eakin. The Sharks were able to school 4 times during their 5 minute power play and eventually won the game in OT. The Golden Knights were leading 3-0 when the penalty was called late in the 3rd period. The NHL later admitted the call was wrong.
The Sharks’ home opener will be against the Knights two days later.
The Knights and Sharks have met 21 times over the last two seasons, by far the most games the Knights have played against any opponent in their brief history.
