"When people think that we cannot do something, it's always nice to … it's another layer where you can gain energy or another challenge."This is a mismatch in many ways.The Golden Knights led the NHL in wins (40) and goal differential (plus-67) during the regular season, tying for the lead in points (82) with the Colorado Avalanche.
