Golden Knights last ones standing after Wild West shootout

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

With none of the customary caution or high-pressure effects often shown by teams and players in their first game on the NHL's biggest stage, Vegas and Washington jumped right into an up-tempo thriller. Well, science is a liar sometimes, and that added wrinkle went out the window when the two teams that went the distance were the two teams that looked least likely at the beginning of the second round. Capitals first-line right wing Tom Wilson put his team ahead 4-3 just 70 seconds into the third period.

The Capitals are 8-2 on the road in the postseason; Vegas is 6-1 at home.

The Golden Knights, who will make their championship debut on Monday in their first season in existence, entered the NHL's 2017-18 campaign with 500-1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup.

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

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Las Vegas.

Carlson almost made it 4-3 on a power play later in the period, but Fleury got the shaft of his stick on the puck before it caromed off the part of the net where post meets crossbar. The hit was shoulder-to-shoulder, but its late nature left the Golden Knights calling on the National Hockey League to discipline a repeat offender who's become a pariah in these playoffs.

"Let's get ready to rumbleeeeeee", Buffer bellowed, his signature call barely audible in a raucous T-Mobile Arena as he introduced the starting lineups to kick off the Stanley Cup Final that was never meant to be.

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.

"I expect us to have a response, we have more to our game", said Caps coach Barry Trotz. Ovechkin (12 goals, 22 points) carried them against Tampa Bay, supported by playoff scoring leader Kuznetsov.

The Game 1 victor has won the last six Cups and 61 of 78 overall. The 2011 Boston Bruins were the last team to rally after losing the opener when they beat the Vancouver Canucks in seven games.
