Despite all the crazy rumors going around about what was going on in the bubble cities of Toronto and Edmonton, Vegas Golden Knights forward Nicolas Roy speaks positively about the experience even if it was not easy at times.
“These are difficult times, especially for families. It's really a lot of sacrifice for the players, but in our team, everyone was up for the challenge. We wanted to go all the way, ”he said during his appearance on the JiC show on Tuesday.
Even though Vegas lost to the Stars in the Western Final, the mood remained positive throughout the process.
“There was a group of veterans who decided to organize activities. There were poker tournaments, sometimes movie nights, and obviously we watched a lot of matches from other series. ”
The one who has 28 games of experience in the regular season and especially 20 games in the playoffs returned to the thorny record of goaltenders, while head coach Peter DeBoer often alternated between Robert Lehner and Marc-André Fleury.
“It didn't bother us. We put that aside and focused on what we could control. We were confident no matter which of the two was in goal. ”
