Vegas Gossip

The Las Vegas Golden Knights qualified for the 2017-2018 Stanley Cup playoffs tonight after beating the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 at T-Mobile. The Golden Knights are the first expansion team ever to clinch a playoff spot in their inaugural season. The VGK are also the quickest expansion team to reach 100 points. It took the 1981-82 Edmonton Oilers three seasons to break 100 points with 111 points and the 1975-76 New York Islanders reached 101 points in their fourth season. Vegas actually has 103 points, with six games to go. By comparison, the 100-year-old Toronto Maple Leafs reached 103 points only once in the century, in their 2003-2004 season.

The elevated tram between the Mirage and Treasure Island has been taken offline and will be out of order till November at the earliest. Details are sketchy, but we’re told that the line is being “renovated,” so that it will be completely automated; though the cars are driverless, an employee apparently had to oversee its operation.
