Unforgettable home opener for the Las Vegas Golden Knights

First responders take to the ice one-by-one, accompanied by members of the team. "To the families and friends of the victims, know that we'll do everything that we can to help you and our city heal".

Certainly, there will be great joy as Las Vegas and all of Southern Nevada celebrates the christening of its first major league professional sports franchise. Las Vegas was the largest metropolitan area in the US without one of the four traditional major professional sports, and Foley paid $500 million for a franchise to play at T-Mobile Arena, which was already under construction.

And, finally, before the puck officially dropped on a new era of hockey in Vegas, survivors from the shooting were invited onto the ice alongside players for a ceremonial kickoff to the game - and the league's latest expansion franchise.

The Golden Knights originally planned a giant ceremony to commemorate the beginning of the hockey season. The Knights have earned a couple of 2-1 wins, both on third period comebacks, one of which had to be settled in overtime. A Knights win certainly might not mean much in the bigger scheme of things, but the Vegas fans deserve any lift they can get right now. The Knights are off to a 2-0 start, and only two other expansion teams - the 1967 Los Angeles Kings and 1967 Oakland Seals - started 2-0. But they scrapped much of it, including a fan fest and their usual pregame ritual (which will resume for future home games), after Stephen Paddock opened fire indiscriminately on a crowd of country music fans listening to Jason Aldean perform at the Route 91 Harvest Festival Oct. 1, leaving 58 dead and almost 500 more injured. It was the least we could do for those people that went through that.

Like us, they'll need to remain, "Vegas Strong".

Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury said Engelland's words gave him goose bumps. But what was supposed to be a celebration of a first for a team, quickly taking second chair to the needs of a city. "But we'll try help the community and make them proud again with a win on home ice".

"We've been working on it for a few days", he said.

Engelland doesn't score many of them.
