Matt might be onto something, especially if you were to ask Duke of the Golden Knights. He may be from Canada originally, but now he can pinpoint the moment he truly considered himself a Las Vegan, he said. "It's unfortunate to say, but it was after that Sunday evening," Duke said, and you know he's talking about the shooting. "To just be able to heal with everyone and recover with everyone, it brings you together and makes everything feel like home."
Like Las Vegas, the Golden Knights will continue to move forward. They will win, as they did against the Coyotes. They will also lose, sometimes, as they learned three days later in their game against the Detroit Red Wings. Either way, they'll do it hand in hand with the community they've injected with some hope. If you have doubts, come to church at the T-Mobile Arena. There's plenty of faith to go around.
