Three F-16 jets from Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas flew over T-Mobile Arena for the first flyover for an indoor NHL game in the United States after Carnell Johnson performed his rendition of “O Canada” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Tweet from @NellisAFB: But seriously, back to hockey as @GoldenKnights take to the ice tonight in Vegas, and here’s how Team Nellis supports our Knights…that and we can’t let the @RCAF_ARC show us up.(The F-16 in VGK colors is purely coincidental)#GoKnightsGo #StanleyCup #weretheonlyjetsinvegas pic.twitter.com/DRiZxEUL6q

The flyover came after a golden knight took down a jet. When a duel broke out between the home knight and a jet character, the jet showed some impressive flying skills, but the knight won by slicing a projection of the plane in two.

The show continued the tradition of amazing performances before first home Stanley Cup Playoff game of each round. Before the duel, a hunter took down each of the six previously eliminated Western Conference teams with flaming arrows.
