What will the Capitals do if Evgeny Kuznetsov can’t play?

"Once he made that save, I knew we were going to win the game".

Tuch had a almost open net and a short-range shot, but Holtby swung around and stopped the puck with the blade of his stick. Washington's Barry Trotz and Vegas' Gerard Gallant want a north-south approach with crisp passes, minimal puck-handling and no turnovers.

"Save of the year".

The best part, however, might just be the nervous Alex Ovechkin on the back page, covering his mouth.

The Vegas Golden Knights have lost for just the fourth time this postseason, falling to Washington 3-2 in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The goal was the fifth of the postseason for Neal, the gifted scorer left unprotected in last summer's expansion draft after reaching the Final with Nashville.

Vegas had just pulled goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. The game immediately took on a nastier tone, and the teams played 4-on-4 hockey moments later after a prolonged scrum led to two penalties. Game 5 will be back in Vegas next Thursday.

Neither could this fan, watching the game with 14,000 of his closest friends at Capital One Arena. "We cleaned a few things". "It's another layer of adversity that we have to go through all the time".

In the Washington locker room, Ovechkin struggled to find words.

Tearful Salah's Champions League final ends with injury
Paul Ince has urged Liverpool FC star Mohamed Salah to resist the temptation to move in the 2018 summer transfer window. . Bale replaced Isco on the hour and connected with an outrageous acrobatic effort on 64 minutes to put Real back in front.

"Brooksy doesn't score a lot of goals, but that was a huge one", Eller said of the 37-year-old blue liner.

Not after the Capitals withstood three games without Nicklas Backstrom. "To see him get rewarded with a goal at a big time, it makes me feel good". I'm proud to be involved in one of the great series ever played.

The Knights continued to push, pulling Fleury for an extra attacker, but Holtby and the Capitals kept them off the scoreboard the rest of the way to knot the series and wrestle away home-ice advantage. Whoever has to step up to make plays, we're all there as a team to support each other. "The plays were there".

That's when Holtby chose to make the best save of the 2018 NHL Playoffs.

"I don't know how to say it", Ovechkin said. "I was like, "Oh no, ' " the Caps" centre said. All of those nine goals have come in the first period, and six of them have come in the opening eight minutes.

The sight of Evgeny Kuznetsov clutching his left arm and leaving the ice after a hit from Brayden McNabb isn't as big a threat to the Washington Capitals' title hopes as it might seem.

Trotz created a new verb to offer the explanation when he pointed out the Capitals have largely stayed holed up at their hotel.

Vegas Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves landed a punch to Tom Wilson's face during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals.

He had zero goals and 10 assists in 81 games during the regular season and one goal and three assists in 21 playoff games. "Like I said, the more I am out there, the better I feel".
