Game Notes: Playing out the Season and Trade Talk

When you are out of the playoff race players look for different things to motivate them.

GDB 72.0 Wrap Up: Kosk-and-in, Oilers lose 6-3 in Vegas

I love watching the Vegas Golden Knights. They are one of the best stories in sports the past couple years and should be talked about way more.
