Golden Knights outlast Capitals 6-4 in Stanley Cup Final opener

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

"I don't think anybody would've expected this, as an organization, as a whole, as a community", Harper told Scott Braun during an interview on NHL Network over the weekend, which ended with him saying "Go Knights Go". It will be interesting to see how much of a difference certain breaks make, too; while Game 1 and 2 feature the usual one-day break between contests, that's not uniform across the remainder of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final. The Capitals kept pace until they couldnt anymore. The two teams combined for 62 shots on goal, and the third period alone featured four goals. On one bench were the Capitals, who waited a long 20 years to get back to this stage, making their first trip to the finals with the superstar core of captain Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. To borrow from an old favorite, "Fight Club", the first rule of the Golden Knights Playoff Club is that there are no rules.

Holtby admitted he was a bit rusty in allowing five goals on 33 shots in Game 1 after historic back-to-back shutouts in Games 6-7 of the last round against Tampa Bay.

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. Reaves was on the ice again seven minutes later, when Nosek scored the game-winner with 10:16 to play.

Colin Miller, William Karlsson, Reilly Smith and Ryan Reaves also scored as the Knights claimed the series lead. But then it was Washingtons turn to respond. Capitals center Lars Eller will not sleep well after fanning on a feed in the slot with an open net with 43 seconds to go. He scored easily, tying the game 8:29 into the second period.

The team announced it will host a #VGKWorldwide scavenger hunt contest Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas for two tickets to Game 2 of the Stanley Cup FInal. On that same shift, Capitals left wing Andre Burakovsky was called for boarding in the offensive zone, gifting Vegas with an early man-advantage opportunity. But Washington seemed to push past its nerves and settle into the charged atmosphere. We've got you covered with how to stay on top of all the action. Its like a party.

City's population dipped just under 25000 previous year
Fort Worth surpassed Indianapolis, Ind., becoming the 15th largest city in the United States with a population of 874,168. Jacksonville was No. 13 on the list, gaining 11,169 residents between 2016 and 2017 for a total population of 892,062.


Despite blowing multiple leads earlier in the game, Vegas kept to form as they were able to protect their lead for more than ten minutes down the stretch.

While Capitals coach Barry Trotz skated his now-customary hot lap before practice at T-Mobile Arena, the Golden Knights had their usual standing-room-only crowd for practice at their training complex in suburban Summerlin.

CBS Sports reports it was a game that outdid the wildest pregame show yet in Vegas, with Buffer announcing the players following an intro that channeled "Game of Thrones" and included flying actors and a catapult.

Ovechkin will probably get his goals, which he didn't in Game 1 (he did nab an assist, though). Fleury finished that run with a 1.97 GAA, .933 save percentage and three shutouts - he has never finished a post-season with a GAA below two, SP above.930 or more than two shutouts since.
