Washington's offense proved it could beat Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, as the Alexander Ovechkin-led attack struck the back of the net on four occasions.
Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night in Las Vegas. Tomas Nosek then scored the game-winner at the 9:44 mark of the 3rd and then he added an empty-netter with just three seconds left.
In the Western Conference final, there were no lead changes and Vegas was ahead in the series for 193 minutes.
Wilson then delivered a blindside hit on Jonathan Marchessault with the puck nowhere near the Vegas centre, but was only assessed two-minute penalty for interference, while David Perron went off for cross checking in the ensuing scuffle. The two teams combined for 62 shots on goal, and the third period alone featured four goals.

And, on Sunday, the president said an American delegation was meeting with North Korean officials in preparation for the meeting. Moon could travel to Singapore for a three-way summit with Kim and Trump next month, Yonhap News Agency reported Monday.
Vegas swept the Caps during the regular season, winning 2-0 and 4-3. The defenseman dragged the puck between the circles and slid it to Oshie in the right circle, who wheeled it back to Carlson in the slot for the punch-in.
Carlson almost made it 4-3 on a power play later in the period, but Fleury got the shaft of his stick on the puck before it caromed off the part of the net where post meets crossbar.
Just as it was in Game 5 against the Jets last round, it was the Golden Knights' fourth line come up large on Monday.
Buffer, however, struggled with some of the names, and Washington captain Alex Ovechkin seemed annoyed with how long it went on, skating in circles along the blue line to stay warm.
"I think it's weird seeing that team here, being in the Cup the first year", said Brooks Orpik, the only Washington player with a ring.

He didn't bowl and couldn't score from his first 10 deliveries with commentators questioning his fitness and selection. While SRH have been nearly untouchable this season, CSK have proved that they have all the goods to be IPL champions.
The raucous Vegas crowd erupted when Knights defenceman Colin Miller scored the first goal of the game midway through the first period with a slap shot through traffic and past Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby.
All of those stats meant nothing in Game 1, as the rested attacks on both sides of the ice lit up the net for 10 goals off 62 attempts on target.
But Karlsson jammed in his seventh shortside with 1:41 to send the teams to the locker rooms tied 2-2 following a frenetic opening 20 minutes.
The Capitals needed almost six minutes to get their first shot on net, and they were held to just a single shot on net for over 13 minutes to start the game.
Per NBC, Monday night's game was up 7 percent from Predators/Penguins previous year and up 36 percent from Sharks/Penguins in 2016. 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.
Warriors force Game 7 against Rockets
Golden State made big moves in the second half, making it obvious they were ready to stretch the series out to Game 7. If he can not come up big and get Golden State back to the NBA Finals, the critics will only grow louder for Durant.
