Who will survive to raise the greatest trophy in pro sports at the end of it all? Midway through the second period, the Capitals and Golden Knights are tied 3-3.
According to NBC, Game 1's overnight rating of 3.72 was up 7 percent vs. both last year's Stanley Cup Final Game 1 with Nashville-Pittsburgh (3.49) and 36 percent over 2016's Game 1 with San Jose-Pittsburgh (2.73).

"I'm definitely happy for the Caps", Harper said. Vegas's fourth line scored the final three goals of the game, and it started with Ryan Reaves's snipe over Braden Holtby's right shoulder a minute and a half after Wilson's goal. "A lot of times you feel like the game is going in one direction and then they score and we score".
"I don't think anybody would've expected this, as an organization, as a whole, as a community", Harper told Scott Braun during an interview on NHL Network over the weekend, which ended with him saying "Go Knights Go".
"We feed off the energy, we have been feeding off the energy all year", said Reaves.More news: USGS: No, don't roast marshmallows at the Hawaii volcano

All three of Vegas' third period goals came from its fourth line.
"For our group, it's not good enough", Marchessault said.
