NHL Announces 2018 Stanley Cup Finals Will Open With Lil Jon Performance

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

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.

Tomas Nosek scored two goals, including what proved to be the game-winner with 10:16 remaining in the third period, to lead the Vegas Golden Knights to a wild 6-4 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final on Monday night.

The Vegas Golden Knights' incredible inaugural season isn't slowing down in the Stanley Cup Final.

One of the most impressive things about this Golden Knights team is their ability to suffocate the opposing team's offensive attack - just ask the Winnipeg Jets - and that was on display early in Game 1.

Game 1 marked the first contest in the history of the 104-year history of the Stanley Cup Final to feature four lead changes.

Nosek was in the right place at the right time for the decisive goal.

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

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson finds himself in the spotlight once again after another controversial hit.

"All the fans recognize the vehicle", Marchessault said. But after conferring with linesmen Matt MacPherson and Jonny Murray, they called Wilson for a two-minute interference penalty. You know, the reason we're actually here. With a win, they would become the first expansion team in any of the four major US sports leagues - the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL - to win a title in their first season.

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. I mean, where does it end? He said he'll leave it to the league to make any further decisions regarding Wilson, who was suspended for three games in the second round for a head shot against Pittsburgh Penguins rookie Zach Aston-Reese. "He was yelling at me from the bench". Brett Connolly and Nicklas Backstrom scored 42 seconds apart in the first period to put the Capitals ahead 2-1.

Washington's John Carlson scores a second-period goal past Vegas's Marc-André Fleury.

But first, they'll have to catch the speedy Golden Knights.

Notes: The victor of Game 1 has lifted the Cup 78.2 per cent of the time since the best-of-seven format was introduced in 1939 (61 of 78).
