'These players are allowing us to stick our chests out': Kelly Kisio enjoying ride as pro scout for Golden Knights

Deryk Engelland added two assists.

The names on the scoresheet for Washington were more noticeable than Vegas' scorers, as Nicklas Backstrom, John Carlson and Tom Wilson scored, as did Brett Connolly. We just tried to outwork who we're playing against and it worked.

Holtby was beaten for five goals, with the sixth being an empty-net tally from Tomas Nosek late in the third period. "I expected (the pass) the whole time". But I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and I support the Golden Knights.

Washington went up 4-3 just 70 seconds into the third when Fleury accidentally kicked Wilson's deflection into his own net for the big winger's fourth. Less than two minutes later, physical fourth-line forward Ryan Reaves punched a puck in from point-blank range to tie the game for Vegas. Nosek and Pierre- Edouard Bellemare were a plus-3. "Really happy for them - and really proud of this team we have in Vegas".

Carlson hit his second post of the night a few minutes later on Fleury before Smith came right back and found iron at the other end. "And that's when I decided to make the video and post it to Twitter".

The Knights, not surprisingly, felt differently. "I never see him coming".

Di Maio met Mattarella informally on Sunday to try to find a solution, a source close to the president said. The head of the far-right League party responded with fury.

Neither team was the favorite to get this far. "I think we have another level to our game, that's the exciting thing". "That's the way it went.at the end of the day it's the win that's most important".

The Capitals ended up falling to the Golden Knights 5-4.

CBS Sports reports it was a game that outdid the wildest pregame show yet in Vegas, with Buffer announcing the players following an intro that channeled "Game of Thrones" and included flying actors and a catapult.

A drum line with flashing lights pumped up the crowd during breaks, while Canadian-born professional fan Cameron Hughes danced and hurled T-shirts into the stands. The two goals also marked the first time Vegas had allowed a goal in the first period at home during the 2018 playoffs.

"Oh, man. It was insane", Reaves said of the atmosphere. "We're going to fix that in our game". "I think fans got their money's worth".

"You could nearly tell this game was meant to be, especially all the things and the storylines that have come about", Schmidt said. The previous best was a 12.6 rating which was from Game 7 of the eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay.

The Golden Knights pulled away in the third period, but the Capitals left the ice with the belief they could steal Game 2 at T-Mobile Arena. "A lot of lead changes", Knights defenceman Nate Schmidt said of Monday night. "For us, you just saw guys expand their roles and be able to become players in this league that we all thought we could be". Barry Trotz is one of the NHL's great defensive thinkers, while Gerard Gallant's team showed that they can grind through a low-scoring series against Los Angeles, so expect adjustments.
