VIDEO: Las Vegas game highlights – a Frozen Fury primer

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the Kings made their Las Vegas debut.

They say the first time is always the most special. In this case, it rings even more true because it was the first time an NHL game had been played outdoors.

Caesar’s Palace, made famous by huge boxing matches in the 80’s was the site for a game between the NY Rangers and the LA Kings back on September 27, 1991.

The blueshirts went up 2-0 and then…well, just watch the video…
