Golden Knights win Game 1 of Stanley Cup Finals

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

Vegas will host Game 2 on Wednesday night. But I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and I support the Golden Knights. The concert will begin on Monday at 3:00 p.m. PST before game starts. The league has benefited from long series, close games and compelling storylines - culminating with Alexander Ovechkin and the long-suffering Capitals against the expansion Golden Knights in what is basically the dream matchup for a casual hockey fan.

The Golden Knights, who beat the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks and the Jets to improbably advance to the final in a stunning first season, played just their 98th game in franchise history.

According to the Washington Post, employees who were gifted the unexpected trip were not only given a free seat on one of the two planes that Leonsis chartered, but would also be provided a room in the Excalibur for one night in addition to a ticket to Game One or Game Two of the Stanley Cup Final.

This is the Capitals second trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. The following are highlights from the call. That said, those gaps in the schedule may, conversely, make it that much easier for the Golden Knights to maintain their often-relentless style.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Reaves said he offered to fight the 6-4, 218-pound Wilson several times during games between the Penguins and Capitals earlier this season but his invitation was not accepted. "He's got every right to be this angry at officials who missed it". Ovechkin (12 goals, 22 points) carried them against Tampa Bay, supported by playoff scoring leader Kuznetsov.

"And the horn sounds, and that takes care of the first!"

"I am not a first liner, no", a grinning Reaves said after the game. But the bottom line is we won the game so we're going to be a lot happier than they are. Their work ethic is just BEYOND compare.

An expansion team on a jaw-dropping run, an opponent that started the season with perhaps its lowest expectations in years, a superstar finally getting his first chance at glory, a head coach left at curb 18 months ago and a city that connected with its new club after an unspeakable tragedy.

Colin Miller lit the lamp first, beating Braden Holtby 7:15 into the first period on a power play and securing a 1-0 lead on the home ice.

Indeed, a first-time NHL champ will be crowned next month after a Final between two teams that arrived at hockey's ultimate destination from very different directions. The Capitals twice came back after the Golden Knights grabbed the lead, going in front 4-3 early in the third period. We're at the point now where even if the Golden Knights lose to Washington in six or seven games, Vegas' goalie could still be named playoff MVP.

Vegas defeated Washington in both meetings during the regular season, including a narrow 4-3 victory over the Capitals on February 4 in Capital One Arena.
