The Las Vegas Golden Knights are set to host the Edmonton Oilers on Friday in NHL Playoffs action. The Golden Knights will have to make due without the services of defenseman Alex Pietrangelo, who has been suspended for a late game slash on Leon Draisaitl.
The slash happened in the waning seconds of the Oilers’ 3-1 Game 4 win over the Knights and left Draisaitl writhing on the ice in pain.
On Thursday, Pietrangelo was officially suspended for Game 5, via the NHL Department of Player Safety.
