In Las Vegas, sportsbooks will take an estimated cumulative loss of $5 million to $7 million if the Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

T-Mobile Arena was only quiet for a few seconds before the tying goal from Reaves, who cross-checked Carlson to the ice an instant before the puck unexpectedly bounced to him for an uncontested shot. Either is a fun result, and if the whole series is as bonkers as the first period, we're in for a hell of a ride.

Bellemare, who didn't have a point, was 6-4 on faceoffs and a plus-3 while playing just under 12 minutes. "When you play my physical style, you're going to have that reputation".

"I never saw it coming", Marchessault said.

KLAS-TV reports that Lauren and Brad Sugars' girl was born May 18, the same day the Golden Knights beat the Winnipeg Jets to advance to the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

Now that we know the two teams that will compete for the Stanley Cup, the conversation regarding who should be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor can truly begin.

Witnesses told the Associated Press that Seaman threw a basketball at the attacker and then tackled him while he was distracted. Noblesville, which is about 20 miles (32 kilometres) northeast of Indianapolis, is home to about 50,000 people.


Nosek clinched it with an empty-netter with 2.7 seconds remaining. "I didn't make the play, I was a little late, but whatever".

The hit happened well away from play and Marchessault was left shaken on the ice, later heading down the tunnel to follow concussion protocol.

"I think the league is going to take care of it", Marchessault said.

Precocious wing Tatum shook off a slow start to score 15 points on 7-for-13 shooting with three rebounds and two assists. The Cleveland Cavs beat the Boston Celtics 87-79 in game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals.


"Both teams want the Cup really bad", Reaves said, "so the bad blood is going to start real quick".

Wilson has been under the microscope during Washington's playoff run, serving a three-game suspension for a devastating hit on Zach Aston-Reese of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round.

"I have a very fond respect for George", Wilson said. He went off with Golden Knights forward David Perron, who came off the bench to cross-check Alex Ovechkin moments after the Wilson hit. "I haven't slowed it down (on video)".

Rockets lose ailing Chris Paul, vow to dig in for Game 6
Replacing Paul's point production and defensive work will require greater effort from Rockets standouts Gordon, P.J. When questioned about the team's inconsistencies of late, Green replied with: "You'd be a fool not to believe me".


But his shutout streak was halted at 166 minutes and 42 seconds when Vegas defenceman Colin Miller scored on a screenshot early in the first period to open the scoring. The legendary Las Vegas ring announcer added some local flair to player introductions before Monday's series opener, sending them off with his famous "LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE" roar. On three occasions, the overtime victor has been scored within the first two minutes, and the latest single-overtime victor was an absolute buzzer-beater, coming when Mike Bossy scored with two ticks remaining in the first overtime of Game 1 in the 1982 Stanley Cup final. "The fans have been great, and they brought it tonight".
