Braden Holtby's 'save of the season' leaves Alex Ovechkin speechless

Raiders owner Mark Davis has a real love affair with Las Vegas

But fans said inside Capital One Arena or not, they will be loud and proud cheering their team towards the Stanley Cup.

(The hydrate line actually began as a way for him to talk around a question he doesn't want to answer). That we would have run out of steam by now.

Kuznetsov leads the Caps in playoff points (25) and finished second in points to Alex Ovechkin during the regular season (83).

"I figured it was worth throwing $100 down on them to win, too", said Vosding, 40, who said he knew Vegas had a strong goalie in Marc-Andre Fleury going into the season.

Part of that was obviously because of the curiosity of seeing Vegas - and not Winnipeg - in the final.

Rockets level up Western Conference finals in dramatic game four
The Rockets will take a 3-2 series lead back to Oakland, Calif., with a chance to close out the defending champions on Saturday. The Rockets' other leader, Chris Paul, was on the bench for the final 22.4 seconds due to a right hamstring injury.

It was the Golden Knights who squeaked out a victory to open the series, but the Capitals bounced back with a huge 3-2 win in Game 2. Tuch, who was in flawless position in front of the open net, one-timed the puck. This series has been nasty. None went in off anyone's rear end. And as far as he's concerned, the play develops because Holtby is in the wrong position from the second the puck leaves Shea Theodore's stick on the dump in.

"I mean, my heart stopped on the bench", Washington's Andre Burakovsky said.

Even the saves have been spectacular. Already in these playoffs they lost the first two games against Columbus and the opener against Pittsburgh, and staved off elimination twice against Tampa Bay in the conference finals.

Washington Capitals goalkeeper Braden Holtby made a daring game-saving stop with two minutes left in their Game 2 win over the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.

If the Washington Capitals manage to win the Stanley Cup, we'll look back five or 10 years from now at Game 2 and shake our collective heads. "We need everyone to step up and he really did". But Caps' fans will - throughout this series and very likely for years to come. It was so tiresome that Nashville's P.K. Subban was forced to manufacture a beef with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby over bad breath. "It's hard to play (against him) when he's on top of his game and when he feels the puck". Alex Ovechkin scored a power-play goal, his first in a Final, Brooks Orpik ended a personal 220-game goal drought with the eventual victor, and Lars Eller added a goal and two assists.

Father of child in 'Spiderman' rescue was playing Pokemon Go
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo was among many who praised the 22-year-old's fearless act, calling him an "example for all citizens". For many, the question was how the 4-year-old boy had been able to climb over the balcony's railing in the first place.

On a conference call with reporters Thursday, Washington coach Barry Trotz called Kuznetsov day-to-day. "Guys are used to getting bumped and banged".

If you're anxious about driving out onto Interstate 95 on Saturday and seeing gridlocked traffic filled with hockey-goers wearing red, there's an alternative. Two nights later, Vegas retaliated not by going after Wilson, but rather Washington's leading scorer.

Lars Eller says the more he plays, the better he plays. "So we'll roll with the punches". The Capitals also fell behind 1-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins - their playoff nemesis - in the second round.

Game three takes place in Washington on Saturday.

Here's hoping it goes the distance.

With two minutes remaining in Game 2, Washington's goaltender sprawled across his net to thwart a 2-on-1 with a slick stick save on Vegas Golden Knights winger Alex Tuch. Asked if he thinks Kuznetsov will participate, Trotz said he doesn't know. "It's never been an issue with our team all season long". 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. (Wednesday) night they didn't have the offensive outburst they usually have. "You're not going to be at your best every night. I think everybody's kind of jumped on this bandwagon and are really wishing for them to see it through". "I guess we cave it up, if you want to describe it like he did".
