Tuesday night is the first home game for the Vegas Golden Knights.

It's going to be more than just a game, though. The game is going to have a very emotional start.

One of the survivors and organizers of the Route 91 Country Music Festival will lead the national anthem. This will be part of a 15-minute ceremony before the game. The coach and players say it's meant to honor the victims and first responders.

Last week, the team visited several victims in the hospital. They're hoping they can give Las Vegas something to be happy about.

"You go home and you just, you think about, you try to process what you saw and what you heard. It's tough. There's no other way to describe it," said Luca Sbisa, a team member.

So far the team is undefeated. Tuesday night they take on the Arizona Coyotes.
