It’s Stanley Cup Final rematch night, folks, as the Capitals take on the Vegas Golden Knights at Capital One Arena.

Plenty of chances both directions in the first, but it took a Caps power play in the final minute for Nicklas Backstrom to find Evgeny Kuznetsov for the redirection in the crease. It’s 1-0 Washington after one.

One more note to keep an eye on: Brooks Orpik was hurt on a hit by Vegas’ William Carrier, and left the ice. We’ll keep an eye on him.

Second period ahead...
