Despite Tomas Nosek being pulled from the midst of Tuesday night’s action due to a returned positive COVID test, the Anaheim Ducks and Vegas Golden Knights are still on for a re-match tonight at T-Mobile Arena.
Speaking of the NHL’s COVID-19 protocols, defender Alex Pietrangelo will return to the Golden Knights’ line up after being put on the protocol list on January 28. Defender Shea Theodore is considered day-to-day and likely will not play tonight.
