#1 According to Vegas Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer the setting at Lake Tahoe for outdoor hockey was breathtaking. But who knew that the game was going to be delayed because the ice got slushing after the first period.

#2 How much does this put a dent on the trip for the Knights and the Colorado Avalanche as these two teams skated for a period and now will have to come back at 9pm local 12 midnight eastern tonight.

#3 Before today’s game between Vegas and the Colorado Avalanche DeBoer said the backdrop of the mountains and lakes were stunning but the temps really rised and who knew the ice couldn’t hold and the game would have to be moved to very late start.

#4  Lots of work went into constructing this NHL Tahoe series, the league built a rink on the 18th fairway gold course located at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort. At the 18th fairway it was surrounded by trees, snow covered mountain on the Sierra range like no other NHL experience before.

#5 Matt, does something like this put doubts in the minds of the NHL, the players and viewers at home that they would book another venue like Tahoe again?
