Vegas hockey team honors victims of shooting

Vegas hockey team honors victims of shooting

"We are Vegas Strong", said Engelland.

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.

The Golden Knights are his team, this was their first home game and they became the first expansion team in National Hockey League history to start 3-0-0 with a 5-2 victory against the Arizona Coyotes. (Tonight) is not about us: "It's about honoring and remembering the victims, and supporting the families and recognizing the first responders".




Golden Knights players, coaches and personnel then escorted first responders from the scene of the shooting onto the ice in advance of Tuesday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

The name of every victim was shown on the ice. The Knights have earned a couple of 2-1 wins, both on third period comebacks, one of which had to be settled in overtime. 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.

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. They gave this community an awesome display, everything from a classy pregame production to a well-played hockey game. However, it is scheduled for 15 minutes, and fans who are planning to attend are urged to arrive well ahead of the 7:30 p.m. scheduled puck drop. I saw real appreciation as I watched, and I think that human side of players stretches far beyond tragedy. It's going to be emotional for us, but we know they're going to do a great job memorializing those people and helping everyone move forward. I wish those who did good would get center stage like last night all the time.it 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 best.at the very least to those watching, maybe it put some of the things we've all be arguing about recently into a different perspective. We've got to get ready to go.
