After a mostly drama-free playoff run, many were left wondering whether this Cup Final would have enough on-ice entertainment to match the compelling off-ice storylines. Back and forth they went, trading goals, rendering helpless the two best goaltenders of the postseason. LVMPD is honored to help with tonight's historic Game-1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. He poked the puck out of a right-side scrum to Erik Haula, and Haula set Miller up at the top of the right circle for a slap shot power-play goal 7:15 into the game. "A lot of lead changes", Knights defenceman Nate Schmidt said of Monday night.

"We didn't play our best game", Alex Ovechkin said. I think it's game speed, and I delivered it in good time.

Vegas head coach Gerard Gallant hasn't been bashful about giving the Bellemare-Nosek-Reaves unit their share of shifts, and that faith paid dividends on an evening that began with boxing ring announcer Michael "Let's Get Ready to Rumble" Buffer performing the introductions.

But boy was it fun to watch live, unless you were Braden Holtby or Marc-Andre Fleury. Yes, a catapult. It was the ideal way to launch a Stanley Cup Final that no one saw coming featuring the expansion Knights and the seemingly cursed Caps. With tickets ranging from $10,000 for the front row to $675 for the last row, there was boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather sitting on the glass and rapper Lil Jon entertaining the gold-clad masses outside.
