Two cities, divides by 270 miles, connected by so much more. Different in so many ways, but often linked in the national consciousness.

For a long time, starting when the Kings ushered NHL hockey into Las Vegas by playing outdoors at Caesars Palace in 1991, this was a Kings town.
But now this is a Knights town.
