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

Then you get fired and you're suddenly persona non grata because nobody wants to be seen to be too close to you in the organization.

The 5 + game misconduct for Interference was instituted for the very type of late blindside hit Tom Wilson just delivered.

Game 1 marked the first contest in the history of the 104-year history of the Stanley Cup Final to feature four lead changes. With its sellout crowd of hometown fans at deafening volume all night, Vegas put its usual speed and relentlessness on full display while overcoming that third-period deficit to win the opener of a matchup between two franchises seeking their first Stanley Cup titles. "I think we have another level to our game, that's the exciting thing". 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.

KLAS-TV reports that Lauren and Brad Sugars' girl was born May 18, the same day the Golden Knights beat the Winnipeg Jets to advance to the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

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

Holtby allowed five goals on 33 shots, but his defence didn't have an answer for how diligent the Golden Knights were around the Washington goal. Brett Connolly, parked in the slot with his back to the net, tied it with a between-the-legs deflection of a Michal Kempny shot from the left point that also ricocheted off the skate of Miller inside the left post.

Wilson has recently backed up his physical game by becoming an offensive asset to the Capitals and has 4 goals and 9 assists this postseason. Niklas Backstrom followed with his fifth goal of the playoffs into the right side of the net off a wraparound pass from Oshie.

But Vegas drew even before the period was up. Engelland hit a bounce pass in front of the crease to Reilly Smith, who finished with a wrister in the top-right corner.

Carlson almost made it 4-3 on a power play later in the period, but Fleury got the shaft of his stick on the puck before it caromed off the part of the net where post meets crossbar. That came only 1:10 into the third period, but the Knights responded a minute and a half later when Kempny missed a bouncing puck near Holtby's net and Ryan Reaves scored.

Hear the highlights below as called by John Walton and Ken Sabourin and on the Capitals Radio Network.

"I didn't like the fourth goal".

Marchessault, who later returned to the game, had this to say: "I saw the hit".
