History was made in more ways than one on Tuesday night when the Golden Knights opened up their home schedule with a win over Arizona 5-2.

The Knights scored 4 goals in the first period, including two more from James Neal, giving him five on the season.

With the win, the team improved to 3-0-0 becoming the only expansion team in NHL history to win their first three games.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was in town for the game and told us why he’s proud to be the first Major League sport to house a franchise in Las Vegas.

Game 4 of the Cubs and Nationals series was rained out as Las Vegas sluggers Kris Bryant and Bryce Harper will battle on Wednesday in a potential closeout game for Chicago.
