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

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

"But we're not going to blame that one on the officiating tonight".

Ryan Reaves scored arguably the most significant goal in the Vegas Golden Knights' 6-4 win over the Washington Capitals on Monday night.

Going up against perhaps the most intriguing National Basketball Association game of the season, a Game 7 in Houston, the NHL got everything it could have wanted from its Stanley Cup opener: Ten goals born from free-flowing hockey on the game's biggest stage. It should also not raise any eyebrows that Tom Wilson of the Capitals, the man who apparently can not be rehabilitated, drilled a star forward who was nowhere near the puck. Vegas' team speed, as it has all year, threw Washington for a loop. Yes, Reaves was born in Winnipeg, but he's an American through and through and the next time he plays in the Olympics or World Cup, it will be with Team USA.

Tomas Nosek, the former Detroit Red Wings winger whom Vegas plucked in last summer's expansion draft, improbably scored the game-winner in the middle of the third period, then added the clincher with an empty-net goal in the final seconds.

All as Elvis impersonators watched from the front row.

They know. They're members of the club, too. "I think fans got their money's worth".

Liverpool's goalkeeper had the worst Champions League final imaginable
Real Madrid also lost a player a few minutes later as Carvajal pulled up injured and was replaced by Nacho Fernandez. The Egyptian hurt his left shoulder as he went down in a challenge with Sergio Ramos in the 25th minute.

No, the Capitals' problems run deeper than that. "They're guys that work hard every game, every practice". He cleaned up a loose puck after it bounced around near the net on that play. Not on this night, when it seemed as though which team had the final shot would win.

Three wins away from the craziest Cup victory imaginable. Back on May 1, with Vegas leading its second-round series against the Sharks two-games-to-one and the Capitals and Penguins even at one game apiece, Harper tweeted, "Could you imagine a Golden Knights vs. Capitals Stanley Cup?" "Thanks God for that, otherwise I wouldn't be here. We haven't seen a championship or even a final in so many years", said Barber. "It's not like the craziest recipe ever". Could have avoided it easily and chose not to, instead drilling a key player and sending him off for concussion protocol.

"I never saw it coming", Marchessault said. Being able to say that I come from Las Vegas, a lot of people looked at it kind of weird when I was younger, thought I lived in a casino, and didn't really have a real house to live in. It's playoff hockey, there's going to be big hits, it's a contact sport.

After a lengthy pregame ceremony that featured player introductions by longtime boxing and pro wrestling ring announcer Michael "Let's Get Ready to Rumble" Buffer, Vegas opened the scoring at the 7:15 mark when Miller rifled a shot from the right point just inside the right post, ending a 166:42 scoreless string by Holtby.

Both struggled Monday, and whichever recovers faster will give his team an enormous advantage. "We've got to be better". We have a whole other level to our game.
