Washington Capitals' Tom Wilson defends hit on Vegas Golden Knights' Jonathan Marchessault

Washington Capitals' Tom Wilson defends hit on Vegas Golden Knights' Jonathan Marchessault

"A lot of times you feel like the game is going in one direction and then they score and we score".

Vegas Golden Knights fans who were unable to purchase tickets to a Stanley Cup Final game against the Washington Capitals still have a chance to secure tickets!

The Winnipeg-born Reaves scored the game-winner and series-clincher in Game 5 of the West final between Vegas and the Winnipeg Jets eight days ago.

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

But Fleury's struggles didn't matter because the Golden Knights' fourth line, which includes a Frenchman (Pierre-Édouard Bellemare), a Czech (Tomas Nosek) and a Canadian (Ryan Reaves), rode to the rescue.

Game 1 marked the first contest in the history of the 104-year history of the Stanley Cup Final to feature four lead changes. Marc-Andre Fleury had 24 saves to pick up his 75th career playoff victory, just two behind Mike Vernon for seventh on the all-time list. And no matter what the past indicates, the Golden Knights and Capitals will be who ultimately decide their own future.

Wilson delivered a blindside hit on Jonathan Marchessault with the puck nowhere near the Vegas centre in the immediate aftermath. Wilson served a minor for interference after officials deliberated on the penalty for several moments, perhaps considering something more harsh. "We know what type of player he is out there..."

As incensed teammates flocked to Wilson, Marchessault headed to the locker room under his own power. The two teams combined for 62 shots on goal, and the third period alone featured four goals.

Wilson has already been suspended three games this postseason for an illegal check to the head of Pittsburgh Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese and his reputation will factor into whether or not the league decides to take further action on the hit. "He looked fine at the end when he was yelling at me from the bench". Goaltender Braden Holtby wasn't the first-round starter but seized the job and shut out the Lightning over the last 159 minutes and 27 seconds of the East final.

The Knights opened the scoring through Miller but their rivals took a 2-1 lead with two goals in 42 seconds from Connolly and Backstrom.

But first, they'll have to catch the speedy Golden Knights.

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.

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