It was also the highest-rated game ever on an NBC network in the Washington, D.C., market with a rating of 16.0. Giving up nine goals between them seemed unlikely but that's exactly what happened Monday night as both goalies were screened relentlessly, caught out of position at times and left out to dry on occasion by defensemen trying to keep up with two swarming offenses.

I didn't think it was possible for Vegas to be any less predictable this season, but then came Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Vegas Golden Knights, who at one point held 500-to-1 odds to win the Stanley Cup, are your Western Conference champs in their inaugural season. It was an egregious missed call by the officiating crew.

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.

"Keeli just kept her seat and a lady beside us tried to give us a towel and Keeli. kindly said no", Brown said with a laugh. "It's not going to go flawless every night".

"Sometimes, I go to my office and wait for my wife, Linda, to hoot and holler if we score an empty-net goal or something like that". It happens. It'll happen again at some point in my career.

Not only is Beagle thankful to McPhee for taking a chance on him, but he also believes in the moves made to try to bring a championship to Washington well before now, even if they didn't work out perfectly. "I wasn't recognizing the type of forecheck they were having, and I made the wrong decision on a few occasion". That said, those gaps in the schedule may, conversely, make it that much easier for the Golden Knights to maintain their often-relentless style.

Rebounds have continued to haunt Holtby, who fell to 12-7 in the playoffs.

The Knights opened the scoring at 7:15 of the first when Miller buried his first with a power-play blast that beat a screened Holtby, but the Capitals equalized at 14:41 when Connolly tipped his fifth between his own legs.

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Vegas, and the Caps have a lot to be encouraged about.

Vegas Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury and Tomas Nosek celebrate their team's 6-4 win over the Washington Capitals in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final at T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, on May 28, 2018.
