Vegas Golden Knights fans are clearly excited about their team's historic run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Some of the highest-profile Vegas fans flooded social media to celebrate after the Golden Knights became the first expansion team in NHL history to sweep a playoff series in its first season when they defeated the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 in Game 4 of the Western Conference First Round on Tuesday.

Carrot Top, the prop comedian who resides in Vegas, almost could not believe the Golden Knights victory. The Blue Man Group, also fixtures in the Vegas entertainment scene, perfectly symbolized the four-game series win by posting an incredible video on Twitter.
