Nobody's mind was entirely on hockey during what should have been a celebratory night and a milestone for Las Vegas, which finally has its first franchise in the major North American pro sports.

With the win, the Knights became the first expansion team to start 3-0 and they now sit alone on top of the Pacific Division to open their seven-game homestand.

The Knights have had a nice start to their inaugural season, winning their first two games on the road. "Obviously, the city is still healing from the tragedy, and as players we're aware of that".

Hockey players are being led onto the ice by the real heroes. I wish those who did good would get center stage like last night all the 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 the very least to those watching, maybe it put some of the things we've all be arguing about recently into a different perspective.
