Capitals enforcer Tom Wilson gets punched in face during Stanley Cup finals

  • Tom Wilson laid out Vegas Jonathan Marchessault with a huge late hit

Trotz, when asked, declined to offer an update.

Brayden McNabb, a defenseman for the Vegas Golden Knights, smashed him against the boards with a forceful check. It was the same resiliency that helped them past a 2-0 series deficit against Columbus in the first round, let them banish their black-and-yellow demons over Pittsburgh, and carried them to Games 6 and 7 shutouts of Tampa Bay for their first Eastern Conference title in two decades. So how are the Capitals keeping their eyes on the prize during the Stanley Cup final and not getting led into temptation in Sin City?

Gerard Gallant did not match lines at home for Games 1 and 2, so don't expect the Vegas Golden Knights head coach to be anxious about who plays against who when the series shifts to Washington for Games 3 and 4. And Jay Beagle, hobbling to the bench after blocking a shot that formally ended the Golden Knights' aforementioned man advantage, their last true gasp. "You see that kind of develop in your mind, you're thinking there's no way that bounces to them across the crease and then comes back across". It would be more hard to sustain that effort and adrenaline for an entire game without him, though it's a test they passed without Backstrom earlier in the playoffs. "This is why we play the game, to get to the final".

After surrendering six goals in a game one defeat, Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby responded with a brilliant 37-save performance and produced his dazzling best in a scoreless third period, which included a stunning save to deny Alex Tuch.

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.

Barr, a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump , eventually apologized to Jarrett for the racist and since deleted tweet. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power.

"(That hit) galvanized us as a group", Trotz said. They've gotten so resilient. "I think he embraces the challenge. We're going to push on'".

After killing off a penalty early in the second period, Washington pushed ahead on a power play of its own at 5:38 when Ovechkin scored his 13th goal of the playoffs from a tight angle thanks to Eller's slick cross-ice pass. The grinding veteran forward with a 2009 Stanley Cup ring from Pittsburgh hadn't scored since February 26, 2016, adding up to the longest active goal-scoring drought in the National Hockey League. Washington needs three more wins to become the second team in National Hockey League history to win a Cup after trailing in all four postseason rounds, joining Pittsburgh in 1991.

The Golden Knights trailed 3-2 entering the final 20 minutes but couldn't net the equalizer despite a 15 shot barrage.

Islanders fans finally have some positive things to picture this summer, as Kovalchuk and Tavares could serve as enticements to draw each other to Brooklyn, while Lamoriello may very well improve the odds of one or more of those two things working out. T-Mobile Arena reported 18,702 fans in the sold-out building, setting a franchise record for attendance.
