Las Vegas goes #nocaps before Cup Final

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

With a win, they would become the first expansion team in any of the four major US sports leagues - the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL - to win a title in their first season.

The Game 1 victor has won the last six Cups and 61 of 78 overall. The Vegas Golden Knights won both regular season matchups between the two teams. The Golden Knights uniformly criticized it as a late hit, while the rambunctious Wilson defended himself.

Here are some quick takeaways from Game 1.

The Eastern Conference champion Capitals hadn't given up this many goals in 29 games since March 18, but they hadn't seen anything like this charmed run by the upstart Knights.

Las Vegas goes #nocaps before Cup Final

And one thing the Capitals may be able to take advantage of is the historical tendency for first-time Cup contenders to have some early series jitters.

Tom Wilson gave Washington the lead again when his shot got caught under goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who backed the puck into his own net. It is Carlson's franchise-record 17th career postseason goal.

Unburdened by the pressure of the No. 1 ranking, the Capitals have been focused and purposeful. Vegas improved to 11-1 in the postseason when scoring first. Matter of fact, don't enter Game 1 expecting the contest to be all that embarrassing for either side because blowouts have been extremely rare to open the Stanley Cup final. Washington still played a strong offensive game and had chances to win, but never slowed the Knights.

Monday marked the first game for the Capitals in the Cup final since their only other appearance in 1998, when they were swept in four straight by the Detroit Red Wings. And while that would suggest the average margin of victory is only a hair more than one goal, most of the Game 1s in the best-of-seven era have ended in regulation.
