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

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

Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals finally got over the hump when they beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final to secure a berth in the championship round opposite the sporting world's most unlikely fairy tale.

"With the Vegas Golden Knights poised to host Game 1 of their series against Washington on Monday, the City of Las Vegas is going all in against the Capitals' online rallying cry of "#ALLCAPS".

The NHL announced that Lil Jon will be performing at a free concert ahead of game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Vegas had outscored its opponents 10-0 in the first period at home during the playoffs, but the Caps got two goals.

But Fleury's struggles didn't matter because the Golden Knights' fourth line, which includes a Frenchman (Pierre-Édouard Bellemare), a Czech (Tomas Nosek) and a Canadian (Ryan Reaves), rode to the rescue. Marchessault would return to the game after passing the concussion protocol.

Braden Holtby made 28 saves for the visitors.

Hockey Night in Canada's Jim Hughson said it best after the show the Vegas Golden Knights put on before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. Midway through the second period, the Capitals and Golden Knights are tied 3-3.

Wilson delivered a blindside hit on Jonathan Marchessault with the puck nowhere near the Vegas centre in the immediate aftermath. Wilson has been suspended three times during the year and this was another questionable play. Vegas winger David Perron was also given a two-minute minor for offsetting penalties.

Now that we know the two teams that will compete for the Stanley Cup, the conversation regarding who should be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor can truly begin. "He looked fine at the end when he was yelling at me from the bench". Nicklas Backstrom then gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead with 4:37 remaining with his fifth goal of the postseason.

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

But the upstart Golden Knights have spent their entire inaugural season speeding past all expectations, and their first Final game didn't slow them down in the slightest. Of those 56 home teams to win Game 1, 48 have then gone on to win the Stanley Cup.
