Fans gather at Bandito's to watch Caps play in Stanley Cup Finals

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!

But it was a 25-year-old from the Czech Republic that fans at a raucous T-Mobile Arena were celebrating as the Knights inched closer to an improbable championship.

"I haven't obviously slowed it down and looked at it, but I think he'd probably say he shouldn't have admired his pass, and I'm just finishing my check", Wilson said. "That's what's exciting to me".

Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves for the Golden Knights. Goalie Braden Holtby has to be much, much better, particularly on his rebound control and ability to read the play behind his own net.

The Vegas Golden Knights have embraced the roots of their city and opened every game of their inaugural season with an incredible opening ceremony that has a very Vegas-y feel.

And so we welcome the Washington Capitals to the club. "We've got to come out with a better effort". This is just not right at all. "I expected (the pass) the whole time". The Vegas Golden Knights followed up with quite a show themselves, which has also been the norm this spring. "Nobody panicked and it paid off".

Alex Ovechkin was held to one assist and two shots on goal in the first Cup final game of his career. Tomas Nosek was +14/-3 and Ryan Reaves +9/-3.

"They work hard for us", Gallant said of his fourth line.

As a result of his generosity, around 100 Monumental employees flew to Vegas from Dulles Airport on Monday morning, arriving in time to watch Game One later in the day.

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

"I was saving them", Reaves said.

The Knights, not surprisingly, felt differently. "I never see him coming". It's a little late.

"And the horn sounds, and that takes care of the first!"




Added the bruising Reaves: "It's just Wilson doing what Wilson does". Carlson voiced his displeasure with officials while he headed back to the Capitals bench. There is certainly much to love about these underdogs and it's possible they still would have gotten this far with average goaltending. "We have more to our game".

"The Golden Knights army has vanquished the Kings, feasted on Sharks and grounded the Jets", the narrator began, referring to the teams Vegas beat to get to the Stanley Cup finals.

The extravaganza was capped off by boxing announcer Michael Buffer introducing the starting lineups.

It marked the first time the Golden Knights trailed at home in regulation in the playoffs, but it didn't last long, as Karlsson made it 2-2 less than three minutes later, putting in a shot from the right side of the net off Holtby's shoulder during a goal-mouth scrum.

"Oh, man. It was insane", Reaves said of the atmosphere.

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

"I kinda got some chills".

Washington jumped ahead 2-0 with a score from Nicklas Backstrom 42 seconds later.

After the game, NBC Sports analyst Mike Milbury went off about the "unforgivable" missed call. This game crushed the 5.5 O/U in the first 30 minutes.

"Lot of up and down".

Ten goals. Four lead changes. Let's ponder the arguments for and against such thoughts while realizing that we're unlikely to see many more 10-goal games.

Fleury has won three Stanley Cups, but even if he loses this one it could go down as his greatest performance.
