Game 2 is on Wednesday night in Las Vegas.
Nosek, who had just 15 points and seven goals in 67 games during the regular season, scored his second and third goals of the playoffs.
Shortly before the empty-net goal, Lars Eller of the Capitals had the puck go off the end of his stick blade with a wide-open net in front of him and a chance to tie the game.
Washington went up 4-3 just 70 seconds into the third when Fleury accidentally kicked Wilson's deflection into his own net for the big winger's fourth. San Jose gave them a six-game run, but Vegas never trailed in the series and outscored the Sharks 22-14. It should also not raise any eyebrows that Tom Wilson of the Capitals, the man who apparently can not be rehabilitated, drilled a star forward who was nowhere near the puck.
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. Two teams feeling each other out.
Vegas defeated Washington in both meetings during the regular season, including a narrow 4-3 victory over the Capitals on February 4 in Capital One Arena.

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.
The electric atmosphere around T-Mobile Arena started two hours prior to the late-afternoon start time, with Lil Jon revving up the crowd in a packed plaza outside the rink before a pre-game spectacle on the ice with actors portraying a knight and his archers defeating an invading army - in this case, the Capitals.
Then Michael Buffer did the player introductions. You look at the players that we have, it was supposed to be a down-and-out team, we weren't supposed to be that great.
Capitals' superstar Alex Ovechkin led the National Hockey League with 49 regular-season goals and has scored 12 more in the playoffs; he will surely be on a mission to win his first Cup. The lead lasted a little over a minute before Ryan Reaves tied the game at four at the 2:41 mark. It was up 7 percent from last year's Game 1 and 36 percent from 2016. The expansion Golden Knights continued their unprecedented season by winning a wild affair 6-4 over the Washington Capitals, who are now 0-5 in Cup Final games all-time.
"I dont think?anybody? believes in us and nobody believes in Vegas, and were right now in the Stanley Cup finals and we fight for a Cup", Ovechkin said Sunday.
"Both teams want the Cup really bad, so bad blood's going to start really quick", Reaves said.
