Nobody does entertainment like Vegas, and the Golden Knights are no exception. As expected, they even raised their game for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The franchise, participating in its first playoff series in its first year of existence, produced an awe-inspiring introduction show featuring a duel, a lantern-toting hype man, the Blue Man Group and more before Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round against the Los Angeles Kings.
The intro was part-Medieval Times, with a showdown between the victorious Vegas knight and his Los Angeles counterpart, and part-concert, with The Drumbots providing a beat.
It was all touched with a very Vegas flair.
The team even unveiled a 20-foot, 2,375-pound helmet - that dropped from the ceiling -- for the team to skate through while entering the ice.
They capped the intro with an appearance from Vegas mainstays the Blue Man Group and former NHL player and current TV analyst Jeremy Roenick cranking the siren.
All this before the show everyone paid to see even began.
