13 Action News talks to a man his daughter who share what it was like to see their favorite team -- Vegas Golden Knights -- play hockey at T-Mobile Arena.

Madison and Jason were able to see Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs thanks to Tommy Ippolito, general manager of Hyde Lounge at the arena. He often gives tickets to fans who wouldn't be able to go otherwise.

Last year, Madison lost her mom to a sudden heart attack. The father and daughter have bonded through watching the Knights play.

Ippolito's generosity didn't end with the game though.

The 9-year-old girl was able to meet her favorite player -- Marc-Andre Fleury -- at City National Arena on Saturday.
