Knights outworked by Capitals in Game 2, take rare home loss

The Knights continued to push and pulled Fleury for an extra attacker, but Holtby and the Capitals kept them off the scoreboard the rest of the way to knot the series and wrestle away home-ice advantage.

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.

The Washington Capitals trail Vegas 1-0 but are used to playing from behind. He's as essential as they come.

"I think we were trying to be a little bit too fancy at times, and that's not our game", said Vegas defenseman Shea Theodore, who drew the Golden Knights to within 3-2 on a power-play goal with 2:13 left in the second.

It was a lesson the family learned this past weekend when they set out on a mission to score seats to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Alex Ovechkin has arrived on the scene in the Stanley Cup Final.

We've seen examples of top-end players convert KHL dominance to significant National Hockey League contributions, albeit with younger stars such as Artemi Panarin and Alexander Radulov, so it wouldn't be shocking if Kovalchuk seamlessly returns to the National Hockey League. Some teams could survive losing one of their best players, but the Capitals didn't seem like one of those teams. Whoever has to step up to make plays, we're all there as a team to support each other. "I wouldn't be running around just to collect the money", Kovalchuk said.

Eller has done this before, of course. 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.

"I don't know how it's going to be", said Capitals winger T.J.

Trotz said he's aware of the video game tournaments and that's fine by him. "So we'll roll with the punches".

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

"We don't have the last change, so you can match up what you want", said Gallant. "You get ready to play the next one".

In order to do so, the Capitals would need Braden Holtby to stand on his head.

"If we take care of our business here at home we're going to give ourselves a really good opportunity to win everything". Melrose in particular is interesting, as he rejoined NHL Network this season (he previously worked there from 2011-2015) while retaining his ESPN role. I know how resilient this group has been all year. "He's thinking of us as part of a family, as part of the experience". But they've been in this spot before. "I think he embraces the challenge". Anything they can put a jersey on, they've got a jersey on; statues, buildings, it's insane. Capital One Arena in downtown Washington was packed with red-clad fans watching Game 2 on the videoboards.
