Vegas has been above average on offense in the playoffs so far as they come in ranked 6th in scoring at 3.06 gpg, while also ranking 9th in shots taken (31.7 spg) and 10th in power play conversions, converting on 19.2% of their chances.
The opening show ahead of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night was incredible.
Both coaches will get more familiar with each team as this series goes along, from additional video of their opponents' structure to a deeper understanding of which matchups to exploit and which ones to avoid. Using the crowd's pregame pulse to trampoline into games that, more often than not, end with them on top. We need to be faster in the defensive zone. "I'm sure the next game is going to be a better game".
Buffer, however, struggled with some of the names, and Washington captain Alex Ovechkin seemed annoyed with how long it went on, skating in circles along the blue line to stay warm.
Fleury entered the series with the best playoff goalkeeping stats, while Braden Holtby had a shutout streak dating back to Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final.
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. "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". Vegas also was guilty of blowing two leads, of 1-0 in the first and 3-2 in the second.
Nosek then put the Knights ahead after Shea Theodore kept the puck in Washington's zone, sidestepped a defender and fired a handsome cross-ice pass to the Czech forward, who buried a one-timer for his second goal of the playoffs.

Joshua Holt, American held hostage in Venezuela, arrives in Washington
American Joshua Holt, who has been jailed in Venezuela without a trial for two years, has been released, officials said today. Venezuela has since expelled a U.S. diplomat based in the capital Caracas for allegedly "conspiring" against the government.
Less than two minutes after Tom Wilson scored in the third period to give Washington a 4-3 lead, Golden Knights fourth-liner Ryan Reaves stole the momentum back for Vegas by tying things up. He now has three goals in the postseason.
It's an interesting group, this one organized by the Vegas Golden Knights.
All three of Vegas' third period goals came from its fourth line.
The wild scoring continued in the third with an own-goal by Fleury, who lost track of a rebound and kicked it backward into his net.
Reaves didn't score at all in his first 26 games after joining the Knights in a trade, but the rough-and-tumble forward broke through with the winning goal in the Western Conference finals clincher against Winnipeg. Marchessault had to leave following the Wilson hit but was cleared in the concussion protocol and returned.
"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.
"And the horn sounds, and that takes care of the first!" "I never see him coming". After falling to Fleury's champion Penguins in the past two postseasons, the Caps revamped their roster with youth and finally overcame years of playoff disappointment to reach their first Final in two decades. Just an incredible story, a team that hasn't even been around for one year - and to see where the Washington Capitals are after the first two games of the playoffs, losing both games at home, it's well-documented.
