Video: Relive Ryan Reaves’ heavyweight slugfest with Rangers’ McQuaid

It’s beautiful enough that the Vegas Golden Knights are in the midst of a seven game win streak which places them near the top of the Pacific division after a slow start to the first half of the season.

Marc-Andre Fleury is an All Star. Jonathan Marchessault should be one.

Hockey life in the desert is good.

What could make it any better? The Golden Knights’ slugger Ryan Reaves putting those damn hands on the New York Rangers’ Adam McQuaid for taking forward Max Pacioretty out of his skates earlier in the game, that’s what.

Yes, the hit is clean. Yes, it’s a part of hockey. But seeing Reaves, all 6’1″ 225-lbs of him, do his damn thing is simply an art in itself.

Oh, Reaves also has a career-high 8 goals this season. Icing on the cake.
