The Henderson Silver Knights defeated the Colorado Eagles in the shootout on Friday night at Orleans Arena. The win came during Head Coach Manny Viveiros’ first game behind the bench since being medically cleared to return to his full-time coaching duties since taking a leave of absence in December for cancer treatment.
