Marchessault, who has 8 goals and 11 assists for the Golden Knights, eventually returned to the game. "We gave them too many chances". But Vegas regained the lead with a pair of goals by its fourth line, the first by Reaves when Kempny failed to clear the puck by the right side of the net, and the second by Nosek, who one-timed a crossing pass from defenseman Shea Theodore into the right corner of the net.

What? Okay. The NHL announced this weekend that Game 1 of the series will open with a free concert headlined by Lil Jon outside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Vegas Golden Knights beat Washington Capitals 6-4 in a dramatic opening game of the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final. Bellemare and Nosek are important penalty killers.

If this game was any indication, it's going to be a high-event series with plenty of offense and highlight-worthy action.

Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant will clearly be happy with the result, but he likely won't be to enthralled with what turned into a shootout Monday night.

That happened again in the opener against Washington.

William Karlsson answered back 1:41 from the end of the period to bring the Golden Knights level, while Reilly Smith and Carlson exchanged goals to make it a 3-3 game entering the final frame. "All they do is keep things simple and work hard". Just 342 days after the Knights selected the backbone of their first roster in the expansion draft, Vegas had another party on the Strip with its remarkable collection of castoffs.

The opener did have some controversy.

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 meeting between the two would be centered around, if all goes according to plan, the denuclearization of North Korea. Trump backtracked less than 24 hours later, saying on Friday that a meeting with Kim is still possible for June 12.

Initially, Wilson wasn't penalized for the hit, but after a confusing chain of events that involved a lengthy and unusual referee huddle, eventually got a two-minute minor for interference. The hit was shoulder-to-shoulder, but its late nature left the Golden Knights calling on the National Hockey League to discipline a repeat offender who's become a pariah in these playoffs.

"We know we didn't play our best", Backstrom said. The Vegas Golden Knights won both regular season matchups between the two teams. The hit is not expected to warrant supplemental discipline, since Marchessault head was not the main point of contact, but it was predatory nonetheless from a player who has already been suspended three games in these playoffs.

Suspended three games earlier in the playoffs for a unsafe hit, Wilson thought the contact was clean.
