On Wednesday night, the Vegas Golden Knights are hosting the Nashville Predators, who you may recall from winning the best regular season record in the Western Conference and then getting relentlessly shredded by the internet for their decision to pat themselves on the back about it.
The Golden Knights, too, decided to rib their opponents. Their pre-game hype video features the infamous Predators banner in question, and then declares that the “regular season” Western Conference champions are here to battle.
Perhaps that’s the problem with such a banner, is that when last season’s regular season Western Conference champions meet the team that actually made the Stanley Cup final from the West, well, you’ve handed them a chirp on a platter.
We have a little back-and-forth, now, after the Preds mocked the Golden Knights’ pregame show when Vegas visited the Bridgestone Arena last October.h/t Twitter/JesseGranger_
