NHL Announces 2018 Stanley Cup Finals Will Open With Lil Jon Performance

The Vegas Golden Knights took another step in their unlikely quest to win the Stanley Cup, beating the Washington Capitals 6-4 in a Game 1 thriller.

Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night in Las Vegas.

It's an interesting group, this one organized by the Vegas Golden Knights.

Reilly Smith gave the Golden Knights their second lead of Game 1 when he beat Holtby 3:21 into the second period. The Golden Knights, resilient as ever, knotted the game at two goals apiece on William Karlsson's goal just before the first intermission.

That post was seen by a woman in Las Vegas who made a decision to start an online fundraiser for airfare and hotel accommodations so Keeli could attend a Knights practice to meet the team.

Las Vegas city officials are embracing Stanley Cup fever by refusing to use capital letters on the city's official Twitter account in a playful shot at the Vegas Golden Knights' opponent: the Washington Capitals.

Next Star Wars Story will reportedly feature Boba Fett
In the meantime we will have to settle for the latest Star Wars film, Solo: Star Wars story which is now in theaters. Boba Fett made his 1980 big-screen debut in The Empire Strikes Back, the second Star Wars movie ever released.

"I think he might has been a little surprised by it", said Wilson, who was suspended for three games in the second round for a hit against Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese.

But Vegas came right back 1:31 later when Reaves, a fourth liner who scored the series clincher in the Western Conference final against the Winnipeg Jets, banged home his second. It was the best overnight rating for a Game 1 Final since 2015 when Chicago-Tampa Bay did a 4.23 rating.

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.

While the top lines contributed in some fashion, the offensive production in Game 1 primarily came from role players, like Vegas' Nosek, who finished off the victory with a pair of third-period goals. Nor should it be a surprise that a pivotal goal in the game was scored as the direct result of a blatant cross-check right in front of a referee. "I'm sure Barry (Capitals coach Trotz) is not too happy with that game and I'm not too happy with that game, but the bottom line is we won the game, so we're going to be a lot happier than they are".

With Andre Burakovsky sitting in the penalty box for boarding, the Golden Knights struck first when defenceman Colin Miller blasted a screened shot on power play that goalie Braden Holtby probably never saw. The Golden Knight reached his fake sword to his real neck and mimed a slow slash, showing he was ready to slay his enemies, one by one.

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