Tom Wilson laid out Vegas' Jonathan Marchessault with a huge, late hit

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

Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves for the Golden Knights. We need to be faster in the defensive zone. On three occasions, the overtime victor has been scored within the first two minutes, and the latest single-overtime victor was an absolute buzzer-beater, coming when Mike Bossy scored with two ticks remaining in the first overtime of Game 1 in the 1982 Stanley Cup final. The good news for the Capitals should they manage to down the Golden Knights in Game 1, though, is that the past two road teams to steal a game to kick off the final - the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks and 2012 Los Angeles Kings - have gone on to win the Cup. Gallant called Wilson an "old-school player" but said, "for me, it was a late hit". LVMPD is honored to help with tonight's historic Game-1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. In the West final, on several occasions, the Golden Knights had an ability to respond with goals shortly after the Jets scored. Wilson was assessed a two-minute interference penalty on the play. Wilson is already considered a repeat offender; he was forced to sit out two preseason games following a late hit on St. Louis Blues rookie Robert Thomas and was suspended for the first four games of the regular season after boarding Blues forward Sammy Blais.

Now that we know the two teams that will compete for the Stanley Cup, the conversation regarding who should be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor can truly begin. With a win, they would become the first expansion team in any of the four major USA sports leagues - the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL - to win a title in their first season.

Marchessault spent time in the concussion quiet room but was allowed to return.

"I saw the hit. I remember everything", Marchessault said after the game.

Wilson, meanwhile, didn't feel he delivered a dirty hit on Marchessault.

Capitals goalie Braden Holtby was on a pretty good roll entering the championship series, having blanked the Tampa Bay Lightning in the final two games of the East final. Brett Connolly and Nicklas Backstrom scored 42 seconds apart in the first period to put the Capitals ahead 2-1. Vegas could be in trouble should the rest of the series continue to be a high-scoring affair, because that would seemingly favor Washington. But first, they'll have to catch the speedy Golden Knights.

The Game 1 victor has won the last six Cups and 61 of 78 overall.
