Golden Knights' epic intro for first Stanley Cup Final game

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

Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom, center, of Sweden, celebrates his goal on Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, left, during first period in Game 1 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals Monday, May 28, 2018, in Las Vegas.

The party just off the famed strip where there's a casino or a street performer at almost every turn started with a concert by rapper Lil Jon and continued with on-ice player introductions from famed ring announcer Michael Buffer. Their story still carries a ring of impossibility, but they're close to adding a real ring to every hand in the dressing room full of self-described "Golden Misfits", as their T-shirts say. "That's what's exciting to me".

Three wins away from the craziest Cup victory imaginable. Deryk Engelland chipped in with two assists. If we said we'd be this far into the playoffs or even make the playoffs, we were lying. "So we made a proposal that I didn't think would work, and it didn't work because our guys like Schmidt".

Nosek's victor at 9:44 of the final period came after Vegas defenceman Shea Theodore moved down the boards and put his wide-open teammate's second goal of the playoffs on a silver platter at the side of Holtby's net. This is just not right at all. "I expected (the pass) the whole time". The Golden Knights uniformly criticized it as a late hit, while the rambunctious Wilson defended himself.

"It's amusing how life goes", McPhee said Sunday in Las Vegas. "Nobody panicked and it paid off".

Ryan Reaves is best known as a fighter.

"They continue to prove everybody wrong and be a marvellous team".

Carlson hit his second post of the night a few minutes later on Fleury before Smith came right back and found iron at the other end. Marchessault has eight goals and 11 points in 16 playoff games. "He's just gotten quicker and he's gotten stronger, and I think that's a testament to his commitment to the game".

The Knights, not surprisingly, felt differently. A big body presence; the mobility that we haven't seen from him probably since he's been in his first three years in the league.

Vegas entered Mondays game with a 10-1 record when scoring first.

"I was saving them", Reaves said. "That's the way it went.at the end of the day it's the win that's most important". It included a narrator describing how the west was won, a golden knight on skates taking out a group of skaters with red capes representing the Capitals and even a catapult launching CGI cannon balls at the opponents.

A drum line with flashing lights pumped up the crowd during breaks, while Canadian-born professional fan Cameron Hughes danced and hurled T-shirts into the stands.

The Vegas Golden Knights made sure they left an impression with theirs, however excessive it may have been.

"Oh, man. It was insane", Reaves said of the atmosphere.

Throughout her career, Patrick made eight appearances in the Indianapolis 500 and finished in the top 10 during six of those. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.

Carlson tied the game at 3 on an exquisite give-and-go with T.J. Oshie at 8:29 of the second period.

"I kinda got some chills".

Sorry if this has been said, but those Connolly and Backstrom goals were the first the Caps have ever scored in the first period of a SCF game.

Per NBC, Monday night's game was up 7 percent from Predators/Penguins previous year and up 36 percent from Sharks/Penguins in 2016.

Before each game, the Golden Knights do what Vegas does best, they put on a show. "A lot of lead changes", Knights defenceman Nate Schmidt said of Monday night. "We just have to forget about it and bounce back (in the) next one".

"For me, I thought my puck-handling was not great tonight", Holtby said.
