Vegas hockey team honors victims of shooting

Before the team's first home game, they honored the 58 victims of the Las Vegas shooting that occurred on October 1.

After a video, the team introduced alongside first responders and those who ran into harms way to help others, in many cases, total strangers. the ceremonial puck-drop?-- flanked by survivors of the shooting. then- 58 seconds of silence to honor the 58 victims who lost their lives, and during that, their names illuminating on the ice-- through that 58 seconds. not a single sound. not one drunk guy screaming for attention, not one audible conversation between distracted patrons. just silence. To the families and friends of the victims, know that we'll do everything we can to help you and our city heal. But they scrapped much of it, including a fan fest and their usual pregame ritual (which will resume for future home games), after Stephen Paddock opened fire indiscriminately on a crowd of country music fans listening to Jason Aldean perform at the Route 91 Harvest Festival Oct. 1, leaving 58 dead and almost 500 more injured.

Citigroup Inc (C) Q3 Earnings Beat, Despite Very Weak Fixed Income Performance
JPMorgan fared worse last quarter than rival Citigroup Inc C.N , which reported a 16 percent decline in bond trading on Thursday. While Citi's trading desks focus heavily on bond and currency trading, it was the bank's other trading desks that stood out.

But after years of work and months of anticipation, the NHL's 31st franchise is officially in business in this gambling mecca, albeit in muted circumstances.

Fleury said he was glad they had a chance to pay tribute. "Vegas is such a huge town, a lot of people living around here, but it didn't feel that way (after the shooting)". The players and coaches hope they can play a role in a return to normalcy.
