Fourth line leads Golden Knights to thrilling Game 1 win over Capitals

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

Fourth line leads Golden Knights to thrilling Game 1 win over Capitals

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.

With Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight, we embark on a journey that will end with either the first Stanley Cup for the Washington Capitals or a win for the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.

In Las Vegas, sportsbooks will take an estimated cumulative loss of $5 million to $7 million if the Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I remember everything. It was a late hit", Marchessault continued.

"I was saving them", Reaves said, tongue planted firmly in cheek. They honk at me.

In addition, the Vegas Golden Knights will host road game watch parties in the Valley.

Somewhere, we imagine Michael Knight (or David Hasselhoff) is smiling. Washington still played a strong offensive game and had chances to win, but never slowed the Knights. "We just have to forget about it and bounce back next one". Even the winning coach, Gerard Gallant, said it was a game that both he and counterpart Barry Trotz would not be happy watching again. Yes, a catapult. It was the ideal way to launch a Stanley Cup Final that no one saw coming featuring the expansion Knights and the seemingly cursed Caps. Referees Wes McCauley and Marc Joannette missed a blatant cross-check by Reaves on John Carlson on the sequence he scored.

Then, moments later, Tom Wilson, who has a reputation of playing on the edge, took a run at Jonathan Marchessault in the neutral zone and delivered a bone-jarring hit that really got under the skin of the Vegas players.

The couple originally had Austin in mind as their daughter's name, but chose to go with Riley - named after Knights player Reilly Smith.

The hit happened well away from play and Marchessault was left shaken on the ice, later heading down the tunnel to follow concussion protocol.

"It's late and I hope the league does something about it", Reaves said. "I'm just finishing my check", Wilson said.

The Golden Knights said the clues will be revealed on the team's Twitter account starting in the afternoon.
