Capitals Vs. Golden Knights Live Stream

Monday marked the first game for the Capitals in the final since their only other appearance in 1998 when they were swept in four straight by the Detroit Red Wings.

Tomas Nosek scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, and the expansion Golden Knights surged past the Capitals for a 6-4 victory on Monday night. Alexander Ovechkin, captain of the Capitals, will try to play spoiler to the Golden Knights' fantastic playoff run as he heads into his first Stanley Cup final since joining the league in 2005-06.

One of the most impressive things about this Golden Knights team is their ability to suffocate the opposing team's offensive attack - just ask the Winnipeg Jets - and that was on display early in Game 1.

Seven minutes later, Golden Knights defenceman Shea Theodore found Nosek with a wonderful cross-ice pass for a backdoor goal.

History will remember Colin Miller scored the first Stanley Cup Final goal in franchise history when he gave the Golden Knights an early 1-0 lead 7:15 into the opening period.

There they were, Tom Wilson and Ryan Reaves, trading punches in the third period - on the scoreboard, of all places - in this heavyweight title bout. Vegas winger David Perron was also given a two-minute minor for offsetting penalties.

Wilson delivered a blindside hit on Jonathan Marchessault with the puck nowhere near the Vegas centre in the immediate aftermath.

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. "We know what type of player he is out there..." "It looked good to me".

Wilson was suspended for three games in Washington's second-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins for a hit that broke the jaw of Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese. Goaltender Braden Holtby wasn't the first-round starter but seized the job and shut out the Lightning over the last 159 minutes and 27 seconds of the East final.

It was the first time the Knights had trailed at home in regulation in the play-offs but they levelled through Karlsson. But Washington rebounded to take a 2-1 lead with two goals in the span of 42 seconds.

As the score would attest, offense wasn't in short supply in Game 1.
