But, Washington headed into the first intermission with a commanding 3-0 lead. "We want the Cup!" rang out from the crowd. "We're going to have surges", Trotz said.
Alex Ovechkin: Ovie is the only player to record at least one point in every game of the Stanley Cup final. "It's a pretty special moment for the town, for organization, for us". "But when you play that support game and you're making short, little plays, you've got support coming across, you've got your D-men joining, you're going to have some opportunities". "You use it for emtion you use it to drive you forward and that's it". "You see the thousands of people outside the arena watching the game".

Neal scored 5:43 into the third period. Now he and the Golden Knights have lost back-to-back games for the first time this postseason, which is not Fleury's fault thanks to a spotty defense and an offense that's struggle to gain a foothold in the Capitals' zone. They failed to take advantage of the opportunity. Not the finish the Golden Knights were hoping for, and now they're officially fighting for their playoff lives. And Fleury was unable to bail them out like he has in earlier rounds. For one, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has to be better. After posting 18 points in the first 15 games of these playoffs, he has a lone assist and a minus-2 rating against the Capitals. The last one was San Jose's Logan Couture, who had 30 two years ago, as the Sharks went to Game 6 of the final before losing to Pittsburgh.
