Vegas home opener a sombre tribute to Oct. 1 victims, first responders
"To the families and friends of the victims, know that we'll do everything that we can to help you and our city heal".
The explanation is that I love sports, don't have a hockey team, and visit Las Vegas enough to apparently pass the test at the Golden Knights adoption center.
The initial home game in franchise existence was supposed to be one enormous celebration of the long-awaited debut of major professional sports in Las Vegas. Las Vegas was the largest metropolitan area in the USA 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.
The players still walked a gold carpet into the arena before the game, cheered on by those early-arriving fans lining the walkway.
Tremendous amounts of class shown by the @ArizonaCoyotes, who stayed on the ice to salute Las Vegas with the @GoldenKnights. The Golden Knights defeated the Coyotes 2-1 in overtime.
After a moving tribute to the victims, the first responders and the survivors, the Knights scored four goals in the first 10:42 en route to the historic win at T-Mobile Arena, which displayed "Vegas Strong" on the boards and "When things get dark, Vegas shines" on its facade.
The Knights, like all expansion teams, weren't expected to be competitive in the first year.
Now they play their first home game under some very unfortunate circumstances. "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". The players and coaches hope they can play a role in a return to normalcy.
Engelland said: "We've never had an experience like this. But we'll try help the community and make them proud again with a win on home ice".
Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was among several players who experienced anxious moments on October 1. Many of them-- hockey, football, baseball, basketball players-- good people, who do good with their time and their money. not overpaid spoiled selfish jerks like the broad brush some paint all athletes with, though I'm sure some of those exists too.
"We've been working on it for a few days", he said.
The home opener was the biggest milestone yet in the quest of owner Bill Foley, whose pursuit of an expansion franchise gathered steam in late 2014.
