Golden Knights escort first responders, honor Vegas victims at home opener

Survivors of the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival stand on center ice as police fire and medical personnel line up in front of the Vegas Golden Knights and the Arizona Coyotes in Las Vegas Nevada Golden Knights escort first responders, honor Vegas victims at home opener

The Golden Knights introduced their players alongside a member of the medical or law enforcement communities that responded to the massacre.

Names of the 58 victims were also displayed on the ice before the game.

Embracing the theme Vegas Strong, the team opened their Tuesday night game against the Arizona Coyotes with a tribute video that showcased the love, generosity and resilience of the city.

T-Mobile Arena had no ads on the boards around the ice for the opener. Both teams then lined up, one behind the other, at one of the blue lines as several survivors of the October 1 shooting stood at center ice during the national anthem.

It was an emotional night in Las Vegas on Tuesday as the NHL's expansion Golden Knights honored the victims and first responders of the recent shooting that killed 58 people just prior to their first-ever regular season game in Las Vegas.

The ceremonial puck drop was then conducted by people who survived the Las Vegas tragedy. "I met my wife here". To all the courageous first responders that have worked tirelessly and courageously through this whole tragedy, we thank you. My kids were born here, and I know how special the city is. "We're the Las Vegas team and this is going to be the first event following the massacre". 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". I'll take (goals) when I can get them.

With two early goals, James Neal became the first player with a goal in a franchise's first three games since Billy Harris (1972 Islanders).
