LAS VEGAS — After Adin Hill’s playoff-best save on Saturday night in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup, Zach Whitecloud’s long-range shot with just over 13 minutes remaining puts the Las Vegas Golden Knights past the Florida Panthers. We beat them 5-2. Last.

A White Cloud goal put Las Vegas ahead, followed by a decisive penalty kill, with captain Mark Stone scoring an insurance goal, which was confirmed following a high-stick decision.

Original Knights players Jonathan Marcheso and Shea Theodore also scored from Florida’s Sergey Bobrovski, a two-time Vezina champion.

Back in the Finals, they will look to avoid the same result as in 2018, when Vegas beat Washington in Game 1 but lost the next four games to fall short of winning the Cup in their first season. .

The loss ended the Panthers’ five-game winning streak, but the Panthers swept the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 2 and swept the Carolina Hurricanes last week.

Florida also lost a road game for the first time since the Panthers defeated the Boston Bruins in Game 1.

Game 2 will be held in Las Vegas on Monday.
