Keeler: If Nazem Kadri can’t start Avalanche-Vegas series, Knights forward Ryan Reaves shouldn’t, either. Not after what he did to Ryan Suter.
Cheap-shot artist? Ryan Reaves is a cheap-shot Monet. A doyen of the dark arts. A man who works in brutality the way other virtuosos toil in paints and clay. The maestro was in rare form Friday night. Four minutes into the second period of a Game 7 victory over Minnesota, with the Golden Knights up 2-1, Reaves, the burly Vegas forward, got behind Minnesota’s Ryan Suter at the edge of the Wild’s crease.
