LAS VEGAS — The expansion Vegas Golden Knights have said they want to help their city heal from last week’s mass shooting that killed 58 people. They began to deliver on that promise in their first regular-season home game.
Motivated by a moving pregame ceremony honoring victims and first responders, the Golden Knights struck for four goals in the first 10:42 on their way to a 5-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes.
The Golden Knights’ 3-0-0 start has provided a much-needed distraction to a city overwhelmed by the sadness of last week’s tragedy.
They are first NHL expansion team to start a season 3-0.
