Vegas still knows how to put on a show.
As they have done all throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Vegas Golden Knights put on a wild pregame spectacular, touting their triumph over their Western Conference foes and preparing to do the same to the Capitals.
This time around, the pregame show including a Capitals "attacker" coming down from the ceiling.

After the wild on-ice special effects chased away the other skaters, the Golden Knight performer took out his counterpart.
And that was just for starters.
Magician Criss Angel and rapper/producer Lil Jon, a Vegas mainstay, rang the opening siren.
Legendary announcer Michael Buffer did the lineup introductions, and Gladys Knight was on hand to sing "God Bless America" during first intermission.
Who knows what they will do for an encore in Game 2.
