Game 1 of Stanley Cup Final produces record TV ratings

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

In a thrilling series opener that saw Vegas and Washington trade chances, playing into the Golden Knights preferred run-and-gun style, Vegas earned a 6-4 win with depth scoring, two third-period goals from the fourth line and a third into an empty net. The 2011 Boston Bruins were the last team to rally after losing the opener when they beat the Vancouver Canucks in seven games.

The Golden Knights, who brushed aside the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks and the Jets to advance to the Cup final in a stunning first season, played just their 98th game in franchise history.

As the first period wound down in, Vegas' top line went on the attack with William Karlsson tying it 2-2 after a shot from Reilly Smith banked off the end boards and onto his waiting stick.

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.

"I thought again the officiating was outstanding tonight", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said.

"There were some swings, some momentum (shifts) on both sides", said Fleury, who came in with a.947 save percentage in the playoffs.

The first goal from Reaves was surely controversial.

"I'm very happy to be associated with the staff that I'm associated with", Kisio said. They were territorially dominant in a way unrealized by most other depth lines around the league and it created a bunch of unexpected scoring opportunities for a team that needed every goal it could get on Monday night.

Beyond those tweaks, it's simply likely that Fleury and Holtby will flat-out play better.

This is still not the end of things, trade deals like this are often of the "nothing is agreed until everything is agreed" type. But no formal deals have been struck, and China has denied that any figure was set during negotiations in Washington.

The back-and-forth action was fit for a show on the Las Vegas Strip.

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.

The Capitals weren't the only team to take issue with a hard check as Vegas was upset over Tom Wilson's blindside hit against center Jonathan Marchessault.

The Nationals have a day game in Baltimore on Monday, so Harper will be able to watch Game 1. If we said we'd be this far into the playoffs or even make the playoffs, we were lying. "I expect us to have a response".
