Opening night in Las Vegas became emotional for the Vegas Golden Knights and their fans in attendance. The Knights played their first ever home game Oct. 10 dedicating their opening ceremony to all affected by the Oct. 1 mass shooting. The ceremony had each Knights player enter with a Las Vegas first responder and then observe a 58 second moment of silence — a second for each victim. Knights player Deryk Engelland, who is an Edmonton native living in Las Vegas, gave a speech before the game reminding the city they will always be “Vegas Strong.” The Knights went on to win with a score of 5-2 becoming the first ever expansion team to win their first three games.
