The team rolled over the Los Angeles Kings in four quick games. Then the series comes to D.C. for two straight.

Vegas entered Mondays game with a 10-1 record when scoring first. But I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and I support the Golden Knights. The 2011 Boston Bruins were the last team to rally after losing the opener when they beat the Vancouver Canucks in seven games. "He's just gotten quicker and he's gotten stronger, and I think that's a testament to his commitment to the game".

Fleury has been the story of these playoffs, but the sheer shock about Vegas' success has overshadowed just how good he's been. Here's the full playoff bracket as well, showing each team's road to the Stanley Cup Final. Simply put, the goal Reaves scored should not have counted.

There would be a hockey game inside T-Mobile Arena - at least eventually - but not before a performance fit for Las Vegas, if not so much a league known for its modesty.

Boston is one of the NHL's Original Six, but we've always been dubious of the claim that its fans are among the most passionate or knowledgable. A new franchise, in their inaugural season, has made history with every game they play.

Aside from Brodeur and Hasek, the other three to get five shutouts are Giguere, Miikka Kiprusoff and Nikolai Khabibulin.

Chances are, as this series goes along, the energy will ebb and flow.

The one to rival this run is actually his first trip to the final, when the young Penguins were defeated by the Detroit Red Wings. After a largely forgettable first period, Washington found itself up 2-1 because of two goals on its first five shots.

On a night when Sin City provided a glitzy, entertaining, over-the-top show for all the hockey world to see, a member of the supporting cast played the hero's role in a wild final act.
