At long last, the NHL Stanley Cup Finals are finally upon us. This series is between the Washington Capitals and the Vegas Golden Knights. Both teams were able to win clinch their spots in the Stanley Cup on the road in the previous series which should be a good indicator about how unpredictable this series might be. Since Vegas had more points during the regular season, it has been gifted home-ice for the series. However, the Capitals are used to winning on the road and will be looking to strike first in the franchise’s first Stanley Cup Finals appearance since 1998. Expect this game to be extremely competitive as both teams want to take a lead in this series.
Washington’s postseason success is due to its elite scoring depth which consists of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov. During the regular season, Ovechkin led the team in points with 87 and had an astonishing 49 goals in 82 games. During the playoffs, Ovechkin has continued to score regularly and has 12 goals in just 19 playoff games. Backstrom missed part of the playoffs due to injuries but has managed to average over one point per game in 15 playoff games. Kuznetsov has been phenomenal this postseason and leads the team in points with 24. If the Capitals plan on winning this game, all three of them will need to be at their best.
As for my prediction, I have to side with the Knights. Vegas has a tremendous home ice advantage and has used it throughout the whole season. Vegas went 29-10-2 at home this season and I expect the T-Mobile Arena to be rocking on Monday. I think that the game will be really close and low scoring but I think that Fleury will be fantastic again as he carries the Knights to a 1-0 series lead.
