  • NHL Stanley Cup: Vegas Golden Knights close to beating 500-1 odds

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

Tomas Nosek scored two goals, including what proved to be the game-winner with 10:16 remaining in the third period, to lead the Vegas Golden Knights to a wild 6-4 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final on Monday night. The Golden Knights had not lost on games when he drove the auto to the rink as of Monday, and it's been quite the sight around Las Vegas.

But Vegas came right back 1:31 later when Reaves, who scored the series clincher in the Western Conference final against the Winnipeg Jets, banged home his second.

The Golden Knights were the last ones standing on Monday night.

With the score tied 4-4, Wilson laid out Marchessault at open ice, which stirred the Vegas bench.

Marc-André Fleury had a rare off evening in his remarkable playoff run with the extraordinary expansion Vegas Golden Knights. The game crossed its 5.5-point over/under midway through the second period and saw a combined 43 shots on goal by the second intermission. "I remember everything. It was a late hit", Marchessault continued. Wilson has been suspended three times during the year and this was another questionable play. "I don't know if you guys knew, but I told everybody I was going to save them for the playoffs".

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. He's also been scrutinized on two other occasions this postseason, narrowly escaping punishment from the NHL's Department of Player Safety.

"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. "I have an away white, so looking forward to that".

After Miller scored the Knights' first goal on a power play and ended Holtby's scoreless streak at almost 167 minutes, Washington calmly surged ahead later in the first period with goals 42 seconds apart.

As one might expect, historically speaking, the Golden Knights will enter Game 1 with a slight edge given they'll be hitting the ice at home.

The Game 1 victor has won the last six Cups and 61 of 78 overall.
