It will not take long for the Vegas Golden Knights to get their chance at revenge on the Washington Capitals.
The rematch of the Stanley Cup Final will take place this Wednesday night at Capital One Arena.
After a Stanley Cup banner ceremony for the ages, an all-out slugfest between their arch-rival Pittsburgh Penguins, the Capitals will continue their reminiscence tour.
There were not many major roster differences for the Capitals and the Golden Knights compared to last year's squad. So what we have here will be an all-out, old-fashioned rematch.

CAPITALS vs. GOLDEN KNIGHTS PLAYERS TO WATCH
Alex Ovechkin, F, Capitals: In the Final, Ovechkin lit up the Golden Knights for three goals and an assist in their five games. Already in only two games this year he picked up right where he left off with two goals and assist. There are no signs of the 33-year-old slowing down after his championship.
T.J. Oshie, RW, Capitals: Not only can you get a T.J. Oshie drinking shirt, but you can see him tearing it up this season. In Pittsburgh he had a three point game and now leads the team in points (five) this season.
Marc-Andre Fleury, G, Golden Knights: It was a fantastic redemption story of Fleury a year ago after being tossed by the Penguins. However, it has been a rough start to the year. He allowed five goals in the season opener against Philadelphia before getting pulled. Now he is coming off a four GA performance against the Sabres. Is this the fall off the Penguins saw coming?
