The Washington Capitals landed in Las Vegas Saturday. On Sunday afternoon the team continued their preparations for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals with a practice at T-Mobile Arena. Game 1 between the Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights will take place on Monday night with an 8 p.m. eastern puck drop. 

Here is how the Capitals will line up for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Kuznetsov-Wilson
Vrana-Backstrom-Oshie
Burakovsky-Eller-Connolly
Stephenson-Beagle-Smith Pelly
Defense
Orlov-Niskanen
Kempny-Carlson
Orpik-Djoos

As the old saying goes, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. This is the exact same lineup the Capitals used in their Game 7 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Finals. This was also their line rushes during Saturday’s practice.
