Capitals center listed as day to day for Game 3

That we would have run out of steam by now.

"I love to meet fans who have a passion for the game", Gretzky said.

Orpik extended the Washington lead to 3-1 when his shot found its way through a crowd in front of the Vegas net and clanged off both posts, but Theodore's power-play goal trimmed the advantage to heading into the second intermission. Benched when the playoffs began, the 2015-16 Vezina Trophy victor had allowed an uncharacteristically high five goals during a Game 1 loss, including four at even strength. The playoffs are often about conservative approaches and tight-checking hockey.

A player who is behind an opponent: ✅ ...who does not have the puck: ✅ ...must skate in order to gain or reestablish his proper position in order to make a check: ✅. This series has been nasty. Close game or not, you just can't allow five goals in a playoff game. None went in off anyone's rear end.

But seemingly out of nowhere, Holtby stretched backward and lunged with his stick to bat the puck away.

Even the saves have been spectacular.

The Vegas Golden Knights hold a 1-0 series lead over the Washington Capitals in the 2018 Stanley Cup Final.

Coming two nights after Washington's Tom Wilson had caught Vegas' playoff scoring leader Jonathan Marchessault with a blindside hit, you knew that the Golden Knights would be seeking retribution.

The defensive gaffes and back-and-forth chances might not be the kind of hockey that coaches particularly like.

The save obviously was huge, as the series now shifts to the nation's capital tied at one game apiece. "We really needed that one". It was so boring that Nashville's P.K. Subban was forced to manufacture a beef with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby over bad breath. "It's hard to replace Kuznetsov the way he's been playing, but if that's the case it is what it is and we just have to have other guys step up". It had been 824 days since defenseman Brooks Orpik last scored, but his short-hopper caromed off Tuch's elbow and past Fleury for the eventual game-winner.

"You could see the emotion on our bench", said head coach Barry Trotz.

"I think I was past surprising when they finished first in their conference".

The Russian superstar led the National Hockey League with 49 goals in the regular season and added 12 more in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The 29-year-old Dane was bumped up from his third-line role to the second unit after No. 1 centre Evgeny Kuznetsov got rocked by Vegas defenceman Brayden McNabb in the first period.

Beyond the "How good will he be?" questions, most fans want to know where he'll go.

We didn't see this type of passion in the Boston-Toronto series or even with bitter rivals Pittsburgh and Washington. "A leader of our team, a guy that just, he's one of those old school, ultimate pro guys that I've only played with three or four of them".

Game 3 is Saturday in Washington.

Here's hoping it goes the distance. "It's never been an issue with our team all season long".

"I don't talk about the goaltender, how they played".

"Right now, we're just one moment at a time, just trying to enjoy the ride, take in the views and be our best selves". And then they bring out Michael Buffer last night, so that's an added thing. Date night costs you nothing'. "The Knights, in my mind, really put the exclamation point that we're the sports capital of the world, not only what they've done on the ice in this historic season but how they brought the community together".
