With Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight, we embark on a journey that will end with either the first Stanley Cup for the Washington Capitals or a win for the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.

The Golden Knights have become a rallying point for Las Vegas natives, just as the Capitals' first trip to the Stanley Cup finals in 20 years has brought D.C. sports fans together. But as Reaves looked for his teammates to celebrate, Capitals head coach Barry Trotz was looking towards the officials for a penalty call on the Golden Knights' forward.

John Carlson leads defensemen in playoff scoring with three goals and 16 points, including 10 points on Washington's fearsome power play, and he leads the Caps with an average ice time of 25:59.
