Vegas Golden Knights to host scavenger hunt for tickets

Vegas Golden Knights to host scavenger hunt for tickets

[T.J.] Oshie. What a great club they've got. Washington's Tom Wilson also flattened Vegas forward Jonathan Marchessault with a blindside hit that could reverberate through the Stanley Cup Final.

The Golden Knights, who beat the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks and the Jets to improbably advance to the final in a stunning first season, played just their 98th game in franchise history.

Marchessault spent time in the concussion quiet room but was allowed to return.

Game 1 marked the first contest in the history of the 104-year history of the Stanley Cup Final to feature four lead changes. And in those instances when overtime is needed to find a victor for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, it just so happens that those goals tend to come in the first extra frame.

Chance, the Golden Knights mascot, drove to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in a replica of KITT, the vehicle from the auto from the 1980s show "Knight Rider", only this auto was themed after everyone's favorite record-shattering expansion team. The game crossed its 5.5-point over/under midway through the second period and saw a combined 43 shots on goal by the second intermission. He went off with Golden Knights forward David Perron, who came off the bench to cross-check Alex Ovechkin moments after the Wilson hit. You know, the reason we're actually here.

Wilson, meanwhile, didn't feel he delivered a dirty hit on Marchessault. "I don't really have to talk more about it", Marchessault said. Two teams, the best in their respective conferences and divisions, will square off against one another with the sport's greatest prize on the line. "He looked fine in the end", Wilson said. "I believe it was a good, clean hit".

The Knights opened the scoring through Miller but their rivals took a 2-1 lead with two goals in 42 seconds from Connolly and Backstrom. Vegas could be in trouble should the rest of the series continue to be a high-scoring affair, because that would seemingly favor Washington.

As one might expect, historically speaking, the Golden Knights will enter Game 1 with a slight edge given they'll be hitting the ice at home.

Fleury may not have another game like this one, so Holtby and the Capitals' team defence better find their response or this could be a short series.

I remember one time actually losing a game against the Nuggets and leaving the arena in my uniform I was so mad. Coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala continues to have pain when running, so he's still listed as day to day.
