Twitter reaction: Golden Knights honour Vegas with magical home opener


Hockey is certainly not top of mind for most Las Vegas residents after the horrific mass shooting that occurred at a country music festival Oct. 1, however the city’s new NHL team, the Vegas Golden Knights, played their first regular-season home game Tuesday night and did the city proud.

The expansion franchise improved to 3-0-0 on the season with a win over the Arizona Coyotes but that’s not what this night will be remembered for.

Golden Knights players got the red carpet gold carpet treatment prior to the game and fans flooded into the T-Mobile Arena eager to show their support.
