Knights defenseman and Las Vegas native Deryk Engelland spoke eloquently to the fans, vowing that the Golden Knights "will do everything we can to help you and our city heal".

Who would become our Mike Piazza?

The toughest challenges are still ahead for Vegas, but this has been one incredible start to their first season as an National Hockey League franchise.

You couldn't ask for a better way to launch a franchise.

On Tuesday, October 10, the #Las Vegas Golden Knights had their home opener at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The players fed off the energy and put on a performance years in the making.

Of course as the days progress that option will diminish and as time goes by we will continue to reassess our searching options. A crocodile reportedly tried to drag Peter Rowsell, 19, from a tent by his foot at Palm Creek in the Northern Territory.

Numerous capacity 18,000 in attendance joined in singing the "Star-Spangled Banner" before Engelland - a longtime Las Vegas resident - spoke to the crowd. "We are Vegas strong".

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. 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. The night provided New Yorkers a brief pause from the pains of their tragedy.

Hockey fans arrived on the Las Vegas Strip in the crisp desert afternoon, gathering in jovial groups outside the rink. Vegas could've lost 20-0 and it still would've been a good night. because a sports team did it's part to bring people together, lend a helping hand, and did it with class.

That says something about the quality of people in the organization.

The ceremonial puck drop was then conducted by people who survived the Las Vegas tragedy. The truth is they had no tie to the community until Oct 1.

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. "I couldn't be more happy than to get one tonight". We've got to get ready to go. "I thought the guys did a hell of a job". They're already the talk of the league thanks to their dramatic victories, and their plucky spirit that has made them feel like a living, breathing NHL team in record time. Somehow they are 3-0, including two come-from-behind wins.
