With the NHL pausing the 2019-20 regular season on March 12 due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus, is taking stock of each of the League's 31 teams.
Today, a look at three memorable moments for the Vegas Golden Knights at the pause:
Sure, it's a piece of cake for a professional hockey player to make five shots in a row from center ice, but a fan? Ruben Lopez did just that, burying five straight during the second intermission of the Vegas Golden Knights' 1-0 win against the New York Islanders on Feb.15, with each shot winning him an even better prize, ending with $30,000.
He was the first winner of the contest in Vegas' three seasons in the NHL. Even the Golden Knight himself was pumped up, tackling Lopez to the ice.
Sometimes to solve a problem, you just have to think it out and use the materials you have around you. That's what some Golden Knights did to retrieve their soccer ball after it got stuck in the rafters prior to their 6-5 overtime win against the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 13.
The Golden Knights family lost someone special when John Baratta, a flagship season ticket holder with a unique look and goal celebration, died of a heart attack March 2. Vegas honored Baratta before its next 中国体彩官方app game, a 3-0 win against the New Jersey Devils on March 3.
