'A magical story': Golden Knights, Capitals to face-off in Game 2

We can't think that they are trying to run us out of the building.

That's when Holtby decided to make the best save of the 2018 NHL Playoffs.

Alex Tuch of the Vegas Golden Knights almost had a dramatic, game-tying goal in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night.

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby made a brilliant stick save with 1:59 left in the third period, stopping Tuch's shot and preserving the Capitals' 3-2 win in Las Vegas.

Vegas had just pulled goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. It very almost, did as the Knights tried to go tic-tac-toe between the boards, Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch.

Steve Valiquette is a former National Hockey League goaltender who is also a goaltending consultant, runs a goaltending school, is a television analyst and an advanced stats analyst who breaks down every scoring chance in every game in the National Hockey League. Melrose said this year's Capitals' team may not be the most impressive Washington's fielded on paper, but it's come together more effectively. But regardless of what caused you in to watch Vegas win 6-4 in Game 1, before losing 3-2 to Washington in Game 2, chances are you weren't disappointed. "This is a fun opportunity to learn about the stories of their fandom and the role the sport plays in the lives of some of Hollywood's biggest stars".

They absorbed the injury-related absences of Nicklas Backstrom, Andre Burakovsky and Tom Wilson, and might have to contend without Kuznetsov. It's incredible. In that moment he made that save, he didn't stop, he didn't quit the play, and it's unbelievable. "You lose one of you best players and we hope to have him back soon, but we showed (Wednesday) and we showed in the past that we can win even when one of our best players goes down".

"It was pretty bad", Washington forward Jay Beagle said. "So he's late", Valiquette said. You see that kind of develop in your mind, you're thinking there's no way that bounces to them across crease and then comes back across. Holts just makes the save of the year.

"Maybe the save of a lifetime", the Caps' veteran centre noted.

Trump's letter, the aides said, was created to pressure the North on the worldwide stage for appearing to have cold feet. Some U.S. critics suspected Clinton was angling for a hasty foreign policy triumph in his last months in office.

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. I mean, a huge save at the right time. "We're getting close. We have a vision of what we want to do and they really just want to continue to keep playing".

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

Holtby: "Luckily it hit me".

Who knows what tricks Holtby has up his sleeve next.

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.

That ability to weather a storm hasn't just come when a teammate's missing, but also when the club finds itself in a hole. Oshie and others. Trotz says Orpik is fine.

He said it's been excellent being on site, as that allows for a different perspective than you get watching games on a screen. "I never expected an owner of the company to do this". I know how resilient this group has been all year.

Yes, that cross-check by Reaves happens multiple times per game in an average game, but read that again.

Wednesday's 37-save epic illustrates his uncanny ability to park disappointment.
