The Golden Knights’ gold-and-grey-on-black helmets are everywhere.They’re on T-shirts and hats worn by mall patrons J.T. Brown Jersey Womens , on jerseys of moviegoers, on stuffed animals, on mugs and on bumper stickers deep in suburbia. Bars far from the city’s tourist-driven areas show the games on TV, and watch parties have become a regular activity.The arena rocks when the expansion team that has taken the league by storm appears on its home ice. A city that for years longed for a major sports franchise has truly embraced the Knights.”It’s so much different live than it is on TV. It’s a whole different experience,” said David Santangelo, a Las Vegas resident who is a season ticket holder and longtime hockey fan. ”People fall in love with it. So many people I talk to at work are saying that they didn’t know it was so exciting. People are really starting to learn about it now.”Santangelo, who was wearing a Knights jersey, was among hundreds who attended a party Monday in downtown Las Vegas to watch Game 3 of the Knights’ second-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks. The Golden Knights have a 3-2 series lead after a 5-3 victory over San Jose on Friday night.For years, questions were raised over whether the tourist-driven city with a long history of hosting big events could support a big league team night after night. Gambling and a relatively small market size steered major franchises elsewhere. Before the Knights dropped the puck, there were naysayers even though initial ticket demand was high.Average game attendance at T-Mobile Arena is now 18,042. Tourists and comped high-rollers have surely caught games. So have tennis greats Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf Tomas Plekanec Jersey Womens , rapper Lil Jon, poker pro Daniel Negreanu and slugger Bryce Harper before baseball season started. But defying some of those early predictions, it’s been regular residents and their children who have filled the stands game after game.The crowds bode well for the NFL’s Raiders, who are due to move to Sin City in 2020.The Knights – who were 200-1 at many sports books to win the Stanley Cup before the season began – proudly declare themselves Vegas Born. Their success on the ice has certainly influenced attendance, but it may also have to do with the city’s desperate need for fellowship around the time the season opened.The Knights’ home opener in October came only a few days after the city suffered the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The team retired jersey No. 58 during its final home game of the regular season to honor the victims. A banner with 58 stars was hoisted into the rafters. The victims’ names were also projected on the ice.”I think because all the players are from different places and Las Vegas is a melting pot of people from different places, it’s just really brought community together to have our own team,” said fan Angel Ashby. ”This is a Vegas-born team. It isn’t from somewhere else.”Ashby had rooted for the Colorado Avalanche, but got rid of the jersey when the Knights arrived. She and her friends rotate hosting watch parties.The energy has existed at the arena from the beginning, but has progressively gotten louder with the success that followed. For the playoffs, the team has expanded the pregame festivities to include a huge knight’s helmet that is lowered from the rafters in front of the Vegas bench. The Golden Knights enter the ice through the front of the helmet.Some players toss pucks to their young fans before the game and some children in attendance will get sticks from select players after every game. And the popularity has spilled over from T-Mobile Arena to City National Arena, the team’s practice facility. There Tomas Tatar Jersey Womens , the Vegas Golden Knights Skating Academy has grown from less than 100 kids to nearly 1,000 seven months after its inception.Todd Pollock, vice president of ticketing and suites, said he did not expect the level of support the team has experienced in its debut season and wondered what took so long for Las Vegas to get a major franchise. The team had planned a three-day campaign for season-ticket packages for next season, but the organization canceled after the first day due to an overwhelming response.”What we’re seeing collectively this year absolutely, positively, I don’t think I could have scripted it any better than the way it’s currently playing out,” said Pollock, who worked in the same capacity with the Los Angeles Kings and the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.— BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand has a knack for the net in overtime. A lucky bounce helped him get another winner for the Bruins on Sunday.Marchand scored 4:03 into the extra period after his shot deflected off an opponent’s skate, extending Boston’s points streak to seven games with a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche.Patrice Bergeron left the puck at the top of the right circle for Marchand, who skated into the slot and inadvertently used Matt Calvert’s skate to get the puck past goalie Semyon Varlamov.Marchand extended his franchise record with his 14th career overtime goal.“We got a lucky bounce Tom Kuhnhackl Jersey Womens , and we’ll take it,” Marchand said.John Moore also scored and Jaroslav Halak made 35 saves for the Bruins, who improved to 4-0-3 in their last seven.Boston (31-17-8) moved one point ahead of rival Montreal for third place in the Atlantic Division and trails second-place Toronto by a point.“It was a needed point for us,” said Halak, who snapped a personal five-game skid. “The standing in our division, it’s tight, and it’s going to be a race until the end so we need to keep getting points right now.”Nathan MacKinnon scored his 29th goal for Colorado, tying Gabriel Landeskog for the team lead. Varlamov had 33 saves as the Avs lost their seventh in a row (0-3-3) but earned a point with a third straight overtime loss.“Tonight’s just a wrist shot that happens to hit our guy’s foot and changes direction,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said.Colorado (22-22-11) fell 4-3 in OT at Washington on Thursday before losing by the same score Saturday against the Islanders in New York.“This is kind of the luck we’ve been having with it,” Bednar said. “We’re working on it, we’re watching video on it Anthony Beauvillier Jersey Womens , guys are paying attention to what we’re saying and defending hard 3-on-3.”Bednar called his team’s three-game points streak “a huge step forward,” but the sentiment differed inside the Avs’ locker room.“It’s just not good enough,” Varlamov said. “We’ve got to find a way to win in overtime.”The Avalanche sit four points out of the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.MacKinnon gained control of the puck in the corner before charging the net and beating Halak high on the glove side for the game’s first goal with 32.1 seconds left in the first.Boston tied it on Moore’s goal nearly four minutes into the second. The veteran defenseman’s wrist shot from atop the left circle found its way past a screened Varlamov for his third goal of the season.MacKinnon’s perfectly-timed exit from the penalty box during a Bruins power play midway through the period resulted in a breakaway, but he hesitated and jammed the puck against Halak’s blocker.Moore nearly scored another when he dumped the puck into the Avs’ zone, only to have it take a wild bounce off the glass and zip past an unsuspecting Varlamov with 24.1 seconds left in the second. The referees waved it off, saying the puck went out of play after hitting the curved glass next to Boston’s bench.NOTES: Boston improved to 8-1-2 in the second of back-to-back games this season. Colorado dropped to 3-3-2. … The Avs had won four straight against the Bruins and were 12-2-1 in their previous 15 games in Boston. … Bruins RW David Pastrnak’s seven-game points streak (four goals, seven assists) was snapped. … Avalanche D Ian Cole (upper body) was sidelined a second straight game after his hit on Washington’s Evgeny Kuznetsov on Thursday evoked a bloody fight with Capitals RW Tom Wilson. … Boston D Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) was out for a second straight game but will skate Monday and could return Tuesday against Chicago. … Colorado D Mark Barberio (head) missed his sixth game in a row and C Vladislav Kamenev (shoulder) his 25th. … Bruins D Steven Kampfer re-joined Providence of the AHL on a conditional loan before the game.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.Bruins: Host Blackhawks on Tuesday night.__
