Washington Capitals' Tom Wilson defends hit on Vegas Golden Knights' Jonathan Marchessault

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

At the very root of things, though, Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final will be much like that of any other series that has come before.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights can pull off one of most improbable runs in USA sports history with a win over the Washington Capitals in the NHL Stanley Cup Finals.

Game two also takes place in Las Vegas, on Wednesday at 20:00 local time (Thursday, 04:00 BST).

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

Golden Knights fourth-liner Ryan Reaves added: "It was a late blindside hit like Wilson always does".

Like a No. 43 wrecking ball, the Capitals' frequent delinquent crashed the fun four minutes after scoring the what would have been the go-ahead goal, barreling into Marchessault's blind side.

Don't get him wrong, Bryce Harper is happy that the Washington Capitals are going to the Stanley Cup Finals. And in those instances when overtime is needed to find a victor for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, it just so happens that those goals tend to come in the first extra frame.

China slams U.S. warships in South China Sea as 'a provocation'
If anyone gets the natural resources in the Western Philippines Sea, South China Sea, he will go to war. Trump's cancellation of a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has put further strain on U.S.

A couple who survived the October shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival has named their newborn after one of the Vegas Golden Knights hockey players, saying the team has brought some positivity into their lives after the tragedy. The Golden Knights uniformly criticized it as a late hit, while the rambunctious Wilson defended himself.

Capitals fans felt even more aggrieved when officials minutes later had a lengthy deliberation to discuss a hit by Wilson on Jonathan Marchessault. Wilson was assessed a two-minute interference penalty on the play. "I don't know if you guys knew, but I told everybody I was going to save them for the playoffs". Two teams, the best in their respective conferences and divisions, will square off against one another with the sport's greatest prize on the line. "He looked fine at the end when he was yelling at me from the bench". "I believe it was a good, clean hit". The power forward sat out three games in the second round when he was suspended for a hit to the head of the Penguins' Zach Aston-Reese, breaking his jaw.

It's the 12th time in 16 playoff games this spring that the Golden Knights scored first. Nicklas Backstrom then gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead with 4:37 remaining with his fifth goal of the postseason.

Paul's status will loom large over Game 7, but it may not mean anything if the Warriors finally play up to their potential. The head coach says Paul's recovery is going well, but he's going to be listed as questionable for Monday's game.

Fleury may not have another game like this one, so Holtby and the Capitals' team defence better find their response or this could be a short series.
