Capitals show guts in beating Golden Knights in Game 2

Later, taking Kuznetsov's spot to the right of the net on the first power-play unit, Eller fed Alex Ovechkin in the bottom of the left circle for a power-play goal that gave Washington a 2-1 lead at 5:38 of the second period.

The attendance number is the best of the team's three watch parties at the arena - with seats, again, filled in the 400 level. "Fleury's been pretty good all year". Instead, he scrambled and dove across the crease and got a paddle on the shot, smothering the puck and a much-needed win that evened up the best-of-seven series 1-1.

The Golden Knights were threatening the Capitals' goal when the exchange occurred.

One could argue the stakes were even higher for Holtby's save, seeing as how it took place in the Stanley Cup Final with Washington trying to avoid a 2-0 series deficit.

In order to win Lord Stanley's Cup, the Washington Capitals would have to prove themselves. The Knights' success and current Stanley Cup playoff run has resulted in a marketing marriage with Las Vegas that has been far more successful than anyone could have imagined.

An End to Iran Defeatism
With the re-imposition of such sanctions, Iran will no longer have any incentive to stick to its part of the nuclear deal. Tehran has threatened to restart its uranium enrichment program at an "industrial level" if the 2015 pact falls apart.

For the newbies, the futures book represents betting on teams to reach a certain milestone, like win a championship - rather than winning one specific game. They got some more in the form of a ground stop at the airport after they landed on Thursday as lightning kept them from getting off the plane. The Capitals have Thursday off coach Barry Trotz said in a conference call Thursday Kuznetsov is day to day with an upper-body injury.

James Neal and Shea Theodore scored and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 shots for the upstart Knights, who couldn't summon their usual clutch magic in the third period, even with lengthy man advantages. I've been to every Stanley Cup since '93, and this is as good as any of them. "I have three or four years left in my tank where I can compete at the highest level...that's why I'm here and that's why I want to sign in the National Hockey League". Washington probably should have won that game last night. Davis told the committee he is willing to spend United States dollars 500 million as part of a deal to move the team to Las Vegas if a proposed USD 1.3 billion, 65,000-seat domed stadium is built by casino magnate Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas Sands Corp. and real estate agency Majestic Realty, possibly on a vacant 42-acre lot a few blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip recently purchased by UNLV.

Game 1 saw the Golden Knights take a 6-4 win, but barely, with Washington narrowly missing an open net near the end. "We just. play on instincts". For all we know, the shorter seasons in the KHL might revitalize him.

Thanks to Holtby's 15 saves, Vegas finally went scoreless in the third for the first time in six periods in this series. We have a great group of leaders to keep everyone focused. No one wants to see the best players injured, but at the same time it helped to inject life into a series.

"We don't have the last change, so you can match up what you want", said Gallant.
