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.

One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left.
