Capitals ready for 'wild' atmosphere against Golden Knights in Game 3

Capitals ready for 'wild' atmosphere against Golden Knights in Game 3

Shea Theodore replied but the Caps held on for a first Stanley Cup game win before hosting games three and four.

A fascinating report by TSN's Darren Dreger really transforms the discussion, and should be fodder for plenty of National Hockey League fans to daydream: one of the deadliest snipers of this generation may accept a deal like the one Toronto gave to Patrick Marleau last summer (three years, $6.25 million cap hit).

Game 3 is Saturday night in Washington.

The Washington Capitals are clinging to a 3-2 lead against the Vegas Golden Knights late in the third period in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final. Jonathan Marchessault doesn't have the puck, he's in front of Wilson and Wilson is behind him, all boxes checked.

The Golden Knights trailed 3-2 entering the final 20 minutes but couldn't net the equalizer despite a 15 shot barrage.

If there's a silver lining to be had regarding the Kuznetsov injury, it's that Lars Eller played much better in Game 2.

The best-of-seven series is tied at one game apiece.

Alex Ovechkin, Braden Holtby and the Washington Capitals stayed cool in the 100-degree Vegas heat and evened the Stanley Cup Final. And taking pictures, we're at the Bellagio here and they have this 70-pound chocolate figurine of [Golden Knights goalie] Marc-Andre Fleury, everyone's taking pictures of that.

That's when Holtby decided to make the best save of the 2018 NHL Playoffs. Washington probably should have won that game last night.

Brooks Orpik ended a personal 220-game drought with the eventual winning goal for the Caps, who rebounded from a ramshackle loss in the opener and handed the expansion Golden Knights only their second home defeat - the first in regulation - in Vegas' nine postseason games.

The Westgate sports book took 13 futures wagers at 500-1 odds, the longest offered anywhere, during training camp in September, before local betting interest on the Golden Knights had piqued.

Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov was injured on a first period hit by Brayden McNabb and didn't return to the game.

Despite constant sprucing from attendants during timeouts, both teams chased the puck through dozens of weird bounces and unpredictable slides while Vegas rallied for a 6-4 victory.

The Washington Capitals trail Vegas 1-0 but are used to playing from behind. They lost Kuznetsov. They refused to lose the game. But he returned to action in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and he's now on a four-game point streak of his own with 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) in 17 playoff games thus far.

Some of those gathered were holding the hottest ticket in town.

The Golden Knights exceeded expectations and many people are just three wins away from watching history and seeing their bank account jump a few thousands dollars.

The Strip has hosted countless events over the years, featuring stars on stage and in the ring. The bottom line is, the team could not get a deal done with the city to get a new stadium, and Las Vegas was waiting with open arms.

The Capitals did it better even though they allowed 39 shots on goal.
