Unbeatable: The Vegas Golden Knights instantly connect with their new hometown

Unbeatable: The Vegas Golden Knights instantly connect with their new hometown

Tonight, Vegas showed what it was made of.and we don't mean our hockey team.

The Golden Knights went on to score three more times in the period to take a commanding 4-1 lead after the first 20 minutes of regular season National Hockey League action in Las Vegas. He hopes to follow the Golden Knights in addition to his Maple Leafs. But to those who say the anthem should not be sung before sporting events, I'll offer this-- those few minutes have given some of the most powerful moments that i can remember.

Fans cheer after a goal during the Vegas Golden Knights first season home game at T-Mobile Arena Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017.

The Knights face the Coyotes again this evening and with any luck will be the first expansion team to win its first three games. Previous year I ponied up for quarter-season tickets when the unnamed team was doing a ticket drive, last week I purchased Center Ice, and last night I attended the inaugural home game.

Midway through the trading day, shares were down more than 4% to $36.60, within a buck and a half of their 52-week low. The telecom company blames tough competition, the impact from hurricanes and stricter credit standards for customers.

One by one, the Knights' public address announcer introduced some of those police officers, fire fighters, EMTs, doctors and nurses, who took the ice side-by-side with players. The Knights have earned a couple of 2-1 wins, both on third period comebacks, one of which had to be settled in overtime.

"Like all of you, I'm proud to call Las Vegas home", Engelland said before the game. But a fan festival was cancelled, and numerous high-profile festivities scheduled for the opener have been delayed until the Golden Knights' second home game on Friday, when the Detroit Red Wings visit. "It's going to be for the people of Las Vegas". "Obviously, the city is still healing from the tragedy, and as players we're aware of that".

Engelland doesn't score many of them. I wish those who did good would get center stage like last night all the would be a refreshing change from some of the things we see and hear nowadays. but the reality is that sometimes it seems to take the worst to see us at our best, and sports offers us the platform to highlight the the very least to those watching, maybe it put some of the things we've all be arguing about recently into a different perspective. It was the least we could do for those people that went through that.
