In pockets of Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night, the Golden Knights were surprisingly outworked, outbattled and outhustled in losing 3-2 to the Washington Capitals. Game 2 of the final was the 74 game Holtby has played this season. But Ovechkin scored his first career Stanley Cup Final goal on the power play, and Lars Eller, bumped up the lineup to fill in for Kuznetsov, had a goal and two assists.

Tuch leaned into a one-timer and got all of the puck, but Holtby desperately threw out the inside of his paddle and stole a sure thing.

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

Even if the Caps and Vegas Golden Knights put on a double-overtime show, the additional northbound train will leave an hour postgame regardless. Capital One Arena in downtown Washington was packed with red-clad fans watching Game 2 on the videoboards.

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

The Capitals joined the National Hockey League in 1974 and have only advanced to the Stanley Cup finals once and lost 20 years ago. And to come away with a split, it's good. For all we know, the shorter seasons in the KHL might revitalize him. At this point, especially with this city so different than any other. they have a bond and have formed a pact that we're not here for pleasure.

Washington overcame another big blow when it lost leading scorer Evgeny Kuznetsov to an upper-body injury in the first period after a big hit from Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb, but the Caps avoided any hotheaded retaliation and concentrated on a gritty effort that was enough to even the series.

And in Game 2 against the Golden Knights, it was Holtby who stopped all 15 shots he faced in the third period - including every attempt during a crucial 5-on-3 penalty kill - that turned this series around.

"I don't know how to say it", Ovechkin said. "It's hard to play (against him) when he's on top of his game and when he feels the puck". "When he creates the moment for us, he was pretty big for us".

The Vegas Golden Knights opened with a 6-4 win over the Washington Capitals, co-starring teams that combined for a Final-record four lead changes. "Like I said, the more I am out there, the better I feel". Episode 1 with "SEAL Team" and "Bones" star David Boreanaz premiered on Tuesday, May 29.

"I don't care who they play against", Gallant said. I'm three feet too late. You stop at the sports book, get a ticket, go to the game, come back.

"To me it was the hockey gods", Trotz said. Looking at reporters, he then drew laughter when he said, "That's smooth, real smooth" to perfectly mimic the Patrick Kane-Duncan Keith commercial that's been running ad nauseum on NBC during the playoffs. That's the great thing.

But negotiations between the two countries have continued, including talks Sunday at the Korean demilitarized zone. US officials familiar with planning said he was scheduled to meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday.
