William Karlsson and Alex Tuch rolled up in style for their last day of work in 2019.

The Vegas Golden Knights forwards drove into T-Mobile Arena in a Battle Wagon for their New Year's Eve matinee against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.

Karlsson drove, with Tuch riding shotgun, in the Old West-style uncovered wagon that had Golden Knights logos on the front and side and the name "Battle Wagon" on the back.

It wasn't quite as cool as Jonathan Marchessault's Lamborghini or Chase the Gila Monster's Batmobile from the 2018 Stanley Cup Final but it certainly is right there.

If Tuch or Karlsson needed the wagon souped up -- say, to reach 88mph and launch into 2020 or beyond -- they also were in luck. 
Actor Christopher Lloyd, best known as Emmitt "Doc" Brown from the "Back to the Future" trilogy was on hand to crank the siren ahead of the third period.

The siren generated much less power than 1.21 gigawatts.
