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

The legendary Las Vegas ring announcer added some local flair to player introductions before Monday's series opener, sending them off with his famous "LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE" roar. "Two years ago I was walking around Ann Arbor kicking stones and couldn't get a job". The two teams combined for 62 shots on goal, and the third period alone featured four goals. "But I thought we had a good response most times". Never separated by more than one goal until the empty netter.

As Vegas and Washington undergo their final preparations for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, dig in to the historical impact of a Game 1 victory and what history might be able to tell us about what to expect as the two teams open the final. Vegas got three goals from its fourth line, all in the third period. Brett Connolly put the Capitals on the board with 5:19 remaining in the first after redirecting a point shot from Michal Kempny.

Buoyed by the goal, the Capitals regained possession after the re-start and brought it back to their offensive zone. And, hilariously, the "Welcome to Las Vegas, Nevada" sign was photoshopped to have lower-case letters - even though the real sign remains unaltered.

With Mourinho eager to bolster his defence this summer, United are now tipped to be one of his most likely destinations. Manchester United's first signing of the summer? United defender Matteo Darmian, meanwhile, is interesting Juventus.

"I think for us we're just keeping things simple, working hard and winning battles", said Reaves, who scored the series clincher against Winnipeg on May 20 to send the Knights to the final. From MacLellan to captain Alex Ovechkin, star center Nicklas Backstrom, goaltender Braden Holtby and management staffs on either side, this final in many ways is a validation of McPhee's philosophy, knowledge and career.

The Capitals pressed late with Holtby on the bench, but Lars Eller flubbed a golden opportunity on the doorstep with Fleury at his mercy before Nosek sealed it with three seconds left. Engelland hit a bounce pass in front of the crease to Reilly Smith, who finished with a wrister in the top-right corner. Midway through the second, Carlson passed from the blue line through a defender's legs to Oshie.

Carlson almost made it 4-3 on a power play later in the period, but Fleury got the shaft of his stick on the puck before it caromed off the part of the net where post meets crossbar.

Houston Rockets: The whole season comes down to Game 7
But the Warriors rallied in the second quarter, cutting the Rockets' lead to single digits thanks in large part to Kevin Durant . He's excited to play basketball, whether it's Game 2 of the regular season, or Game 6 of the Western Conference finals .

The Capitals are 8-2 on the road in the postseason; Vegas is 6-1 at home.

There they were, Tom Wilson and Ryan Reaves, trading punches in the third period - on the scoreboard, of all places - in this heavyweight title bout.

"We're a good defensive group, but we weren't tonight", Marchessault said.
