Vegas needs two things if they want any shot at this series: a hot start, which will in turn keep the crowd engaged, and a world-class performance from Marc-Andre Fleury. "We've overcome a lot of adversity, and this is just another task". The Caps went up 4-0 on a John Carlson goal 15:23 into the second period.

The Golden Knights wrap up a storybook year, advancing all the way to the final in their first year of existence.

Schmidt tied it when his wrister from the high slot hit the skate of Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen and caromed through Holtby's pads. The goalie had no way to defend the play - the goal was credited to Perron as the puck skidded off his body - but a Washington challenge for goaltender interference failed and the game was tied again.

Vegas' Brayden McNabb took a penalty just 11 seconds later, and Ovechkin set up in his customary spot in the left faceoff circle to put Nicklas Backstrom's cross-ice pass into a sliver of open net.

Forwards (12): Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, William Carrier, Cody Eakin, Erik Haula, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, James Neal, Tomas Nosek, David Perron, Reilly Smith, Tomas Tatar and Alex Tuch.

The Golden Knights pulled Fleury for an extra attacker with 2:04 remaining.
