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

The legendary Las Vegas ring announcer added some local flair to player introductions before Monday's series opener, sending them off with his famous "LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE" roar.

The Vegas Golden Knights beat Washington Capitals 6-4 in a dramatic opening game of the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final.

On and off the ice, the first ever Stanley Cup final game in Las Vegas was just about as wild as you'd expect. Vegas had outscored its opponents 10-0 in the first period at home during the playoffs, but the Caps got two goals. And it turns out that a Game 1 victory for the home team has often led to a Stanley Cup victory for the club with home-ice advantage, as well.

Don't get him wrong, Bryce Harper is happy that the Washington Capitals are going to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Wilson's account of the exchange didn't really line up with what the Golden Knights' forward had to say. Vegas winger David Perron was also given a two-minute minor for offsetting penalties. "I remember everything", Marchessault said after the game.

Now that we know the two teams that will compete for the Stanley Cup, the conversation regarding who should be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor can truly begin. Two teams, the best in their respective conferences and divisions, will square off against one another with the sport's greatest prize on the line.

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. "He looked fine in the end", Wilson said.

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.

Capitals goalie Braden Holtby was on a pretty good roll entering the championship series, having blanked the Tampa Bay Lightning in the final two games of the East final.

It's the 12th time in 16 playoff games this spring that the Golden Knights scored first.

Notes: The victor of Game 1 has lifted the Cup 78.2 per cent of the time since the best-of-seven format was introduced in 1939 (61 of 78). Brett Connolly and Nicklas Backstrom scored 42 seconds apart in the first period to put the Capitals ahead 2-1.
