Caps' Kuznetsov practises but status unclear for Game 3

Raiders owner Mark Davis has a real love affair with Las Vegas 'A magical story': Golden Knights, Capitals to face-off in Game 2

The best-of-seven series is tied at one game each. The series continues Saturday night in Washington.

James Neal got behind Washington's defense and sent a wrist shot from the left circle past Braden Holtby 7:58 into the game.

Here is Holtby's save from Game Two, purely for comparison reasons, and not just because we can't get enough of it.

But the Golden Knights are facing another solid team in the Washington Capitals, a team that's been very good for the past decade but never advanced to even the conference finals. Jay Beagle topped 14 minutes of ice time (15:30) for just the sixth time in 20 playoff games he's played on Wednesday night, and Chandler Stephenson played close to 15 minutes (14:52) after barely topping 10 minutes of ice time in Game 1. The list goes on, mostly for small-dollar "souvenir" bets, forcing casinos to brace for heavy losses.

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.

"We've had some games on the road where we've had no choice but to win", Washington winger Brett Connolly said.

With Kuznetsov out, coach Barry Trotz first went with a familiar combination: sliding Nicklas Backstrom in with Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson.

The Washington Capitals welcome the Vegas Golden Knights to the Capital One Arena for game three of the Stanley Cup finals in National Hockey League action Saturday. You stop at the sports book, get a ticket, go to the game, come back. If healthy but not what he once was from a transition/all-around standpoint, Kovalchuk could at least be a premium version of a "trigger" on a power play (see: Sam Gagner's greatest moments with the Columbus Blue Jackets). It's no excuse for us. "I want to be productive and I want to play for the team that trusts in me and I will give them everything I can to make them proud and successful".

The poster not only wishes the Golden Knights good luck, but also ends with the famous Raiders tag "Just Win Baby". "This time of year, you need things like that to move on", said Nate Schmidt, a Golden Knights defenceman.

"He's got some toughness to his game and he bounces back". 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. It was his first goal since February 26, 2016.

Washington then answered back with a Globetrotter-esque tic-tac-toe passing play between Andre Burakovsky, Michal Kempny and Lars Eller.

"The Washington Capitals are in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1998, and this is the first finals series since 2007 where neither team has previously won the Stanley Cup", Andrea Farmer, Maryland Department of Transportation MTA's director of MARC train, said in a statement.
