Golden Knights fans are excited to see the team head into Round 2 of the playoffs in a series against the San Jose Sharks, after their 4 game sweep of the Los Angeles Kings.

That excitement spread to Mayor Carolyn Goodman's office at City Hall downtown, where Goodman was considering some creative ways to support the Knights and beat the Sharks.

She joked she initially thought the city should muzzle all the sharks at Vegas aquariums, but in the end she chose a more humane option.

In a tweet, she says after talking with a local radio station, she would announce the color teal, the team color of the Sharks, would be banned in Las Vegas.

As for a punishment, Goodman joked maybe people could be put in a stockade, or they could have get Golden Knights hats or face paint.

But the #NoTeal trend is already getting a lot of buzz on social media, and Goodman hopes it turns into enthusiasm for the Knights game Thursday.
