  • Vegas Golden Knights will honor #VegasStrong for home opener

With the win, the Knights became the first expansion team to start 3-0 and they now sit alone on top of the Pacific Division to open their seven-game homestand.

"To the families and friends of the victims, know that we will do everything we can to help you and our city heal", he said.

Neal said Friday night he had tickets to last Sunday night's concert in Las Vegas, at which 58 people were killed and almost 500 injured, but decided not to attend.

The initial home game in franchise existence was supposed to be one big celebration of the long-awaited debut of major professional sports in Las Vegas. T-Mobile Arena was as loud as any venue I've been in during more than four decades of going to sporting events in Las Vegas. After a week, the Golden Knights have a 3-0 record and sit at the top of the Pacific Division after a trio of incredible games to start their historic year.

If the Knights didn't feel a strong connection to Las Vegas before October 1-and who could blame them if they didn't?

That may provide a little extra energy as the Knights look to sweep the home-and-home series with the Arizona Coyotes after they defeated them 2-1 in overtime Saturday at Gila River Arena.

Piazza hit a home run into the cold NY night at Shea Stadium in the Mets' first home game after the September 11 terrorist attacks for a late-game victory. 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.

Their performance hasn't been flawless by any means, but it's been held together by enough Marc-Andre Fleury saves and James Neal goals to catapult them into the national sports spotlight. "Obviously, the city is still healing from the tragedy, and as players we're aware of that". "We're playing for our city, for the tragedy that happened, for all the people that were here tonight and were affected by the tragedy".

Engelland said: "We've never had an experience like this". The events of the past nine days have taught them more about this place and its people than they might have gleaned in five "normal" years.

Forward Jonathan Marchessault said: "I think we're ready". Owner Bill Foley said in an interview after the first period that Engelland's speech was unbelievable.
