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

The Vegas Golden Knights' incredible inaugural season isn't slowing down in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Capitals pressed late with Holtby on the bench, with Lars Eller flubbing on a wide-open net, but were unable to find an equalizer before Nosek sealed it.

After the game, there was plenty of chatter about Wilson's hit on Marchessault, and some discussion about possible supplementary discipline. Thus, since the 1939 final, the average goals per game in Game 1 is 5.64, with the home side averaging 3.36 goals to the road team's 2.28 goals.

William Karlsson answered back 1:41 from the end of the period to bring the Golden Knights level, while Reilly Smith and Carlson exchanged goals to make it a 3-3 game entering the final frame.

Vegas's Tomas Nosek scores the game-winner past Washington's Braden Holtby in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday. "The atmosphere is just a Vegas atmosphere".

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

Initially, referees Marc Joannette and Wes McCauley missed the play. Wilson served a minor for interference after officials deliberated on the penalty for several moments, perhaps considering something more harsh. "I don't know if you guys knew, but I told everybody I was going to save them for the playoffs".

Wilson was suspended for three games in Washington's second-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins for a hit that broke the jaw of Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese. With its sellout crowd of hometown fans at deafening volume all night, Vegas put its usual speed and relentlessness on full display while overcoming that third-period deficit to win the opener of a matchup between two franchises seeking their first Stanley Cup titles.

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. "I have an away white, so looking forward to that".

But his shutout streak was halted at 166 minutes and 42 seconds when Vegas defenceman Colin Miller scored on a screenshot early in the first period to open the scoring. Vegas could be in trouble should the rest of the series continue to be a high-scoring affair, because that would seemingly favor Washington.

Notes: The victor of Game 1 has lifted the Cup 78.2 per cent of the time since the best-of-seven format was introduced in 1939 (61 of 78).
