Stanley Cup: Golden Knights take wild Game 1

Golden Knights' trusted 4th line ride to rescue in wild Game 1

Golden Knights' trusted 4th line ride to rescue in wild Game 1

As Vegas and Washington undergo their final preparations for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, dig in to the historical impact of a Game 1 victory and what history might be able to tell us about what to expect as the two teams open the final. It's going to be a lot of fun, it's going to be a great series, it's going to be hard-fought. Along with Ovechkin's quiet night, Evgeny Kuznetsov - who scored a whopping 24 points in the first three rounds - also had just one assist. "When you play my physical style, you're going to have that reputation".

Before the Capitals could put a shot on net in the second period, Vegas regained the lead.

Most of the Capitals' early shot attempts flew wide of the net, and Marc-Andre Fleury only had to make two saves in the first 15 minutes. We know what type of player he is out there.

When Devante Smith-Pelly blocked a pass in the defensive zone but botched the clear, Shea Theodore collected the puck and sent it to Nosek at the side of the net, and the fourth-line winger slapped it past Braden Holtby.

This was a game fittingly played in the only hockey arena with an actual rollercoaster in its front yard at the New York, New York Casino.

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. "I think the league's going to take care of it".

Golden Knights' trusted 4th line ride to rescue in wild Game 1

"Both teams want the Cup really bad", Reaves said, "so the bad blood is going to start real quick".

"He'd probably say he shouldn't have admired his pass and I'm just finishing my check", he said. He was under scrutiny in the first round for a charging penalty against Alexander Wennberg and the Columbus Blue Jackets in Round 1, while avoiding punishment for a high hit on Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin in Game 2.

The electric atmosphere around T-Mobile Arena started two hours prior to the late-afternoon start time, with Lil Jon revving up the crowd in a packed plaza outside the rink before a pre-game spectacle on the ice with actors portraying a knight and his archers defeating an invading army - in this case, the Capitals. "I haven't slowed it down (on video)".

The Eastern Conference champion Capitals hadn't given up this many goals in 29 games since March 18, but they hadn't seen anything like this charmed run by the upstart Knights.

Entering the Stanley Cup Final, the Golden Knights ranked second in goals-against average (1.80) and the Capitals were second in scoring (3.47 goals per game). This game crushed the 5.5 O/U in the first 30 minutes.

"The fans got their money's worth tonight", Schmidt said.
