The Vegas Golden Knights lead the Stanley Cup Final against the Washington Capitals, one game to none. Follow along here for updates on Game 2, starting at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
The Vegas Golden Knights and Washington Capitals played one of the most exciting hockey games all year in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, and they’ll renew hostilities for Game 2 on Wednesday. The game is set for 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN (live streaming via NBC Sports and fuboTV) from T-Mobile Arena.
The first meeting between the two teams was a fun one, and almost entirely out of control. That seems to be what Vegas is going for with their over-the-top (and great) introductions, and Game 1 delivered on the hype. Michael Buffer did his thing, and then the Knights did their thing.
Braden Holtby and Marc-Andre Fleury both made their share of saves in the first meeting, but both also allowed plenty of goals. For the first time in a long time, both goalies looked very beatable, and the five goals allowed by Holtby is something he surely won’t forget going into Game 2.
Tomas Nosek had two goals for the Knights, with all of William Karlsson, Ryan Reaves, Reilly Smith, and Colin Miller notching goals in the game as well. One of them was an empty-netter near the end of regulation, so it was more like a 5-4 victory, and was a very close outing.
Vegas has the home-ice advantage, and they’ll be hoping for a less exciting game overall on Wednesday — they’d like to not allow four goals themselves, after all.
Below is all you need to know to watch the action on Wedensday.
