Goalies under siege in Game 1 shootout between Caps, Knights

Dejan Kovacevic

The 200 lucky full-time employees came from almost all of Monumental's departments, with priority given to those who work most directly with the Capitals affairs and based on seniority.

Wilson's account of the exchange didn't really line up with what the Golden Knights' forward had to say.

Fleury enters the Stanley Cup Final with a.947 save percentage that will be very hard to maintain, but he'll be among the all-time great performers if he can do it. Yes, Reaves was born in Winnipeg, but he's an American through and through and the next time he plays in the Olympics or World Cup, it will be with Team USA. Those players made the difference down the stretch as they accounted for three goals - one from Reaves and two from Tomas Nosek - all of which came in the third period to help seal the win for the Golden Knights.

The Nationals have a day game in Baltimore on Monday, so Harper will be able to watch Game 1. "Three more and I'll be more excited". We have a whole other level to our game. "I think we've been feeding off that energy all year".

Then Michael Buffer did the player introductions.

MacLellan choked up a couple of times talking about glory days with McPhee, when they won the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Championship together at Bowling Green. Generally speaking, both teams were fairly sloppy, which contributed to the 10-goal output.

The Golden Knights did that at the start of Game 1, taking the first five shots before Colin Miller netted a power-play goal from the right faceoff circle at 7:15. "And everybody knows what Vegas did in the first year is very special".

U.S. pauses new North Korea sanctions as officials try to reset summit
Since then, North Korea has rejected USA demands for it to unilaterally abandon its nuclear weapons programme. Optimistic rhetoric aside, the White House said Trump was ready to cancel the talks at any time.

Washington jumped ahead 2-0 with a score from Nicklas Backstrom 42 seconds later.

"It was an emotional game for everybody", Schmidt said. But Washington's 2-1 lead did not last long. And the Capitals aren't going to win anything if Alex Ovechkin is going to be limited to two shots and five attempts. Vegass top line with Smith, Jonathan Marchessault and center William Karlsson had connected for a goal in the last two minutes of the first period, too.

The game was also the most streamed game in National Hockey League history on 321,000 unique devices, up 67 percent from last year's Game 1 between Pittsburgh and Nashville.

Neither team was the favorite to get this far.

Part of that was because of the goaltenders.

For as well as he's played, Fleury's been susceptible to conceding goals on occasion, as Game 1 marked the fourth time this postseason he gave up four tallies. But neither was particularly sharp early on. Not only did he finish as a minus-3, but he also whiffed on a golden opportunity to tie the game in the final seconds in front of a wide-open net. "But some nights it's going to go that way". "I've got my Vegas Golden Knights". That set the stage for Nosek, who for one magical night became the latest hero in Vegas' unfolding history.

"I'm definitely happy for the Caps", Harper said.
