How to watch
Each team had led on two occasions in Game 1 with the score at 4-4 early in the third period. At the halfway mark of the final frame, the Golden Knights went ahead once again, and held on long enough to score an empty-netter in an entertaining 6-4 contest.
It was the third time in the post-season that Vegas kicked off a series with a win, and for the Capitals it means they are playing from behind, as they have at some point in every series so far.
Washington will try to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole; something they’ve already tempted fate with once in this post-season. Vegas can move to within two wins of a Stanley Cup should they be able to repeat Monday’s performance.
