With a 1-0 win in over the LA Kings first ever playoff game on Wednesday, the NHL’s expansion-team extraordinaire Vegas Golden Knights continue their miracle season. While technically not the first expansion team to reach the NHL playoffs, they’re the first to do so in the modern NHL expansion era, which began in 1991.
At 7/1 odds to win the oldest trophy in sports, their casino neighbors have also made them one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup–definitely a first.

Having filled T-Mobile arena at 103% during the regular season, it’s been high demand since October when #VegasBorn was born. Whether or not the Knights are still playing in the June desert heat, the season has been more successful than anyone could have imagined. While Vegas is technically the 5th expansion team to qualify for the playoffs, they’re certainly the best. While neither the Whalers, Nordiques or Oilers made it out of the first round, they were also not truly expansion teams. They’d been competing in the World Hockey Association for years. Additionally, after the NHL- WHA merger, 16 of 21 teams qualified for the playoff, which made it hard to not qualify.
