Mark of McPhee all over Cup final

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

Tomas Nosek scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, and the expansion Golden Knights opened an improbable Final with a thrilling 6-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Monday night. After a largely forgettable first period, Washington found itself up 2-1 because of two goals on its first five shots.

Maybe he should get one if the Washington Capitals win.

And, frankly, there were some breakdowns that didn't result in goals.

Here are some quick takeaways from Game 1.

Washington's offense proved it could beat Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, as the Alexander Ovechkin-led attack struck the back of the net on four occasions.

It was the first time in the playoffs that the visiting team had scored a goal in the first period in Vegas.

If you were hoping that some bad blood would be established in the early going in this series, Game 1 delivered some of the ugly stuff.

That post was seen by a woman in Las Vegas who chose to start an online fundraiser for airfare and hotel accommodations so Keeli could attend a Knights practice to meet the team. An electric Vegas crowd ratcheted that energy up another level. "We're both hungry. This is going to be a beast of a series". The expansion team has had a remarkable first season and now finds themselves four games away from a championship parade on the Las Vegas Strip.

Just as it was in Game 5 against the Jets last round, it was the Golden Knights' fourth line come up large on Monday. We've got you covered with how to stay on top of all the action.

"They have good players and I like their logo", said Keeli. They still have some great talent and evolving talent but they have also bought in in a different way.

Consider how "The Flower" has responded recently to relative "off" nights.

Nosek was in the right place at the right time for the decisive goal.

Still, there are some reasons to expect additional lows with potential highs.

For a city that prides itself on entertainment, this game came as advertised. When you note how big a factor special teams has been for Washington in particular (17 power-play goals for, 16 against in 20 games; Vegas has given up and generated 10 PPG), that could offset schematic improvements.

The home fans didn't get to celebrate the one-goal advantage for very long.

Ovechkin will probably get his goals, which he didn't in Game 1 (he did nab an assist, though). Also scoring in the win was Colin Miller, which was his 3rd of the playoffs, William Karlsson which was his 7th and Reilly Smith, which was his 3rd. Depth players are already making their presences felt, so it's easy to see that both teams sport the sort of supporting casts you usually need to make it this far.
