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

It did not accomplish much and may leave Washington without its top-line right wing for Game Two.

The Stanley Cup Final is underway at T-Mobile Arena with the Capitals meeting the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.

In a town where you never quite know what you're going to see, the Stanley Cup final opener had just about everything you can imagine.

The Winnipeg-born Reaves scored the game-winner and series-clincher in Game 5 of the West final between Vegas and the Winnipeg Jets eight days ago.

But Karlsson jammed in his seventh shortside with 1:41 to send the teams to the locker rooms tied 2-2 following a frenetic opening 20 minutes.

Don't get him wrong, Bryce Harper is happy that the Washington Capitals are going to the Stanley Cup Finals. Their opponents are the Vegas Golden Knights, a team that has defied all expectations in its inaugural trip on the National Hockey League to post a record of 51-24-7 during the regular season, capturing the Pacific Division title. The Golden Knights uniformly criticized it as a late hit, while the rambunctious Wilson defended himself.

Vegas coach Gerard Gallant called the hit "real late and real hard" and said he felt Wilson deserved a five-minute major. Wilson was eventually assessed a two-minute penalty for interference, and many in the nation's capital were left wondering why Reaves' goal didn't receive similar scrutiny. He went off with Golden Knights forward David Perron, who came off the bench to cross-check Alex Ovechkin moments after the Wilson hit. "A lot of great players on that team as well".

"I haven't obviously slowed it down and looked at it, but I think he'd probably say he shouldn't have admired his pass, and I'm just finishing my check", Wilson said. The power forward sat out three games in the second round when he was suspended for a hit to the head of the Penguins' Zach Aston-Reese, breaking his jaw.

The Knights opened the scoring through Miller but their rivals took a 2-1 lead with two goals in 42 seconds from Connolly and Backstrom.

Washington's John Carlson scores a second-period goal past Vegas's Marc-André Fleury.

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).
