Washington Capitals vs. Vegas Golden Knights - 6/2/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

"He's old-school", Washington forward T.J. Oshie said. It's going to be fun, it's going to be interesting, it's going to be hard. It's going to be interesting. Melrose said Game 1 had plenty of mistakes, but it was entertaining, and it stood out for the Golden Knights' speed and for their penalty kill.

Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis flew 200 Monumental Sports & Entertainment employees to Las Vegas for Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Las Vegas Knights and put them up in the Excalibur for one night, according to Scott Allen of the Washington Post. "It's just one of those games, even at the end, with Tuchy having that chance". If healthy but not what he once was from a transition/all-around standpoint, Kovalchuk could at least be a premium version of a "trigger" on a power play (see: Sam Gagner's greatest moments with the Columbus Blue Jackets).

"As soon as you step on the ice, you feel a different atmosphere and energy", Ovechkin said.

That the divisional playoff format, which pitted Boston against Toronto - the second and third best teams in the East - in the first round and then pitted Winnipeg and Nashville - the two best teams in the West - in the second round, would somehow make the final somewhere anticlimactic. His 1.88 goals-against average and.939 save percentage are still outstanding, however. Of course, that team ended up losing four of the next five games of the No Goal series. A bouncing puck landed on the stick of the Golden Knights' Cody Eakin. Washington was also sharper through the neutral zone.

It was the Golden Knights who squeaked out a victory to open the series, but the Capitals bounced back with a huge 3-2 win in Game 2.

The series shifts to Washington for Games 3 and 4.

Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final is under way in Las Vegas.

"I don't care who they play against", Gallant said.

"I'm excited", said Ovechkin, who waited 13 seasons to make the third round, let alone play at home in the final.

The temperature on the Las Vegas Strip spiked to triple digits in the hours before Game 2, likely making it the hottest Final game in National Hockey League history.

Kuznetsov took part in an optional practice Friday morning, two days after getting rocked by Vegas defenceman Brayden McNabb.

"I'm three feet too late", Beagle said.

The Golden Knights got the first goal of the game again on Wednesday, marking the ninth time in nine games this postseason that they've struck first on home ice. "I guess we cave it up, if you want to describe it like he did".

Vegas is 3-0 and has scored 12 goals in games following a loss in the playoffs. The series continues Saturday night in Washington.

He said the excitement around the Golden Knights is palpable in Vegas.

For the newbies, the futures book represents betting on teams to reach a certain milestone, like win a championship - rather than winning one specific game. "This time of year, you need things like that to move on", said Nate Schmidt, a Golden Knights defenceman. Admit it. You just had flashbacks to 2011.

They're the stakes Ovechkin, the Capitals and their red-rocking fans have been craving for a long time. "Something that will go down in Washington Capitals lore". "It's going to be an experience of a lifetime".
