Las Vegas Heat Wave Melting Ice at Stanley Cup Final

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 Vegas Golden Knights have lost for just the fourth time this postseason, falling to Washington 3-2 in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final. Trotz, when asked, declined to offer an update.

Discussing Vegas's success on ESPN's "Outside the Lines", Keith Olbermann made a keen observation on Tuesday when he noted that numerous Golden Knights are second- and third-liners, which helps Vegas match up well against opponents' second lines and gives it a theoretical advantage against their third and fourth lines.

He's unlikely to return to Game 2.

The Capitals joined the National Hockey League in 1974 and have only advanced to the Stanley Cup finals once and lost 20 years ago.

From the start, Holtby was locked into the game, showing better puck control and allowing no goals during a 5-on-3 Vegas power play.

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

Vegas is 13-4 in the post-season, but was tied 1-1 through the first two games against both the San Jose Sharks and Winnipeg Jets after sweeping the Los Angeles Kings in the opening round.

"Greatest save I've ever seen", tweeted former Caps' goaltender Olie Kolzig, who's seen and saved more than a few in his days in the crease, which include the Caps' last trip to the finals in 1998. Benched when the playoffs began, the 2015-16 Vezina Trophy victor had allowed an uncharacteristically high five goals during a Game 1 loss, including four at even strength.




Washington head coach Barry Trotz said Friday that Kuznetsov, who was not made available to the media, will "probably" be a game-time decision when the series shifts to Capital One Arena on Saturday night. "We're going to play well and work hard and compete hard".

With the teams playing 4-on-4, Burakovsky fed Michal Kempny, who fooled Fleury by passing to Eller for a wide-open net instead of shooting.

"We did a good job all around on a lot of areas", Trotz said. Anything they can put a jersey on, they've got a jersey on; statues, buildings, it's insane. "I think he embraces the challenge".

TL;DR - The refs will set a tone in the first minute, gradually move away from it for 58 minutes and then go back to said tone in the final minute. But Caps' fans will - throughout this series and very likely for years to come.

In the Washington locker room, Ovechkin struggled to find words.

The Golden Knights trailed 3-2 entering the final 20 minutes but couldn't net the equalizer despite a 15 shot barrage. He estimates a six-figure liability on futures, but he explained that the losses have been pouring in all season on single-game bets, too.

A franchise that didn't exist a year ago was four wins (now three) from the Stanley Cup and a team that hasn't sniffed the Stanley Cup Final since America Online was the dominant internet service provider finally found their way back.
