Golden Knights last ones standing after Wild West shootout

Kragthorpe Utah fans are jumping on the Vegas Knights’ bandwagon and why not? But remember they pursued us first NHL Announces 2018 Stanley Cup Finals Will Open With Lil Jon Performance

After Marchessault sent a pass to the wing, the Vegas Golden Knights forward admired his pass. Wilson nailed Marchessault from the blind side, causing the forward to go the quiet room.

An outdoor pre-game concert by Lil Jon, an elaborate on-ice show that would put Medieval Times to shame, and introductions performed by Michael Buffer made for a unique introduction to the Cup Final. Overall, franchise's making their first appearance hold a 10-16 record since 1939.

As one might expect, historically speaking, the Golden Knights will enter Game 1 with a slight edge given they'll be hitting the ice at home.

Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson defended his controversial hit on Vegas Golden Knights winger Jonathan Marchessault in the third period of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, saying it was "a good clean hit" in "playoff hockey".

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. He's also been scrutinized on two other occasions this postseason, narrowly escaping punishment from the NHL's Department of Player Safety. "I remember everything", said Marchessault, who went through concussion protocol but returned to finish the game.

They played so well that cameras caught Reaves singing along perfectly to Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher while sitting on the bench late in the game.

Gallant employs his fourth line for key face-offs in the defensive zone.

"We're going to look to go to Game 4 in D.C. next Monday night".

As the score would attest, offense wasn't in short supply in Game 1. I trust myself. I play the game hard. "We just have to forget about it and bounce back (in the) next one".

Down a goal early in the third period, Reaves and Nosek scored to give the Golden Knights the lead for good.

Nosek, who had just 15 points and seven goals in 67 games during the regular season, scored his second and third goals of the playoffs.

Colin Miller, William Karlsson and Reilly Smith scored early goals before Nosek added an empty-netter for the Knights, who are three wins away from one of the most improbable championships in recent North American team sports history.
