And the Golden Knights have been doing this all season, so now that they're in the Stanley Cup final, that group getting key ice time and being relied on for a contribution is not something completely foreign to them.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves to pick up his 75th career playoff victory, just two behind Mike Vernon for seventh on the all-time list. When it was all said and done, a total of 10 goals would be scored.

Just as it was in Game 5 against the Jets last round, it was the Golden Knights' fourth line come up large on Monday.

The expansion team has not been afraid to go insane for their pregame shows, especially during the playoffs, with Monday's just the most elaborate one yet.

Smith put the home side in front, only for goals from Carlson and Wilson to give the Caps a 4-3 lead, but Reaves equalised before Nosek claimed a rare double.

Holtby was beaten for five goals, with the sixth being an empty-net tally from Tomas Nosek late in the third period.

Harper may not have expected the Golden Knights to reach this point, but he at least imagined the possibility that Vegas would face his adopted hometown's Capitals in the finals. Less than a minute later, Nicklas Backstrom backhanded a shot past Fleury, who couldn't recover after sprawling to his right with T.J. Oshie coming around the back of the goal. "They did a real good job".

The best story in sports this season, the expansion Golden Knights are four wins away from sipping from the Stanley Cup.

They know. They're members of the club, too. "Even going out for warmups, usually you take a look at all the pucks so you don't fall on them, but I looked up and everybody was in the building already".

But Washington rebounded to take a 2-1 lead with two goals in the span of 42 seconds. Giving up nine goals between them seemed unlikely but that's exactly what happened Monday night as both goalies were screened relentlessly, caught out of position at times and left out to dry on occasion by defensemen trying to keep up with two swarming offenses.

"It's a lot of fun obviously to be in the finals and play for a Stanley Cup", Nosek said.
