WATCH: Golden Knights opening night pre-game ceremony honoring Las Vegas heroes

Pre-game ceremony at T-Mobile Arena.

Pre-game ceremonies Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena for the Vegas Golden Knights home opener honored first responders in the Oct. 1 Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting that killed 58 and wounded more than 500.

After a stirring pregame video with stark images of Las Vegas and its heroes, the Golden Knights took the ice for pregame introductions, each accompanied by a member of the medical and law enforcement communities. The Coyotes lined up behind the Golden Knights while the sold-out arena roared.

And then the arena illuminated the victims' names on the ice in gold while counting 58 seconds of painful silence.
