In true show-stopper form, Las Vegas pulled out all the stops for its first home game of the Conference finals.
Golden Knights center Jonathan Marchessault arrived in style ahead of Wednesday’s Game 3 matchup against the Jets when he pulled up to T-Mobile Arena in a gold Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.

Marchessault went on to score twice, including a goal in the first 35 seconds, for the second straight game to help the team secure a 4-2 win as Las Vegas took a 2-1 series lead.
Before the puck dropped, the Golden Knights put on an epic pregame show that featured a drumline and a sword fight on the ice.
