It started promising, but didn't finish that way for the Golden Knights.
After Tomas Hyka scored the first goal in Golden Knights history to give Vegas a 1-0 lead on Los Angeles 1:15 into Tuesday's Rookie Camp game, the Kings roared back to score four straight goals.
Although Keegan Kolesar got one back for the Golden Knights in the third period, it wasn't enough in a 6-2 Kings win.
Here are three quick hits from Tuesday's game.
We'll have more reaction from the locker room later this evening.
1. Logan Thompson acquitted himself well
The free agent goalie that was invited to Golden Knights Rookie Camp started for Vegas and wasn't flawless.
He played about half the game, and didn't surrender a single goal.
Thompson left with the Golden Knights ahead 1-0, before Jiri Patera took his place. Patera was in net for all six Kings goals.
2. Keegan Kolesar lived up to his billing
The power forward from the Seattle Thunderbirds, who was acquired from the Blue Jackets via trade over the summer, both scored a goal and got into a fight.

Along with the theme of firsts, Kolesar's fight was the first fight in team history.
3. Score Was Misleading
It's not quite like a baseball spring training game, where teams start their veterans and put in their prospects for later innings.
Nevertheless, the Golden Knights came out strong, outplayed the Kings in the first period and remained tied 1-1 through two periods.

An old cliché in hockey is that you have to play a full 60 minutes. The Golden Knights didn't do that.
But for a team just starting out, a solid 40 minutes provides something to build on heading into tomorrow's rematch with the Kings at 1:00 PM.
