The craziest things put in the Stanley Cup and 12 other questions answered by its keeper

He recorded three hits in the loss.

Holtby's performance guaranteed that this whiplash series is now tied heading back to Washington.

Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby made an unbelievable save Wednesday night, robbing Golden Knights forward Alex Tuch in the third period to lift Washington to a 3-2 win in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final. Jonathan Marchessault doesn't have the puck, he's in front of Wilson and Wilson is behind him, all boxes checked.

The Golden Knights were outshooting the Capitals 10-2 in the final period of regulation only to be denied time and time again by Holtby.

Following Game 2, Game 3 will be played Saturday in Washington.

Alex Ovechkin got his first Stanley Cup Final goal with a second period power-play strike.

D'Souza described being locked up with 120 "hardened felons" as an "eye-opening experience" but that he "came out of it fine". Also, then-U.S. attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, a longtime friend of Comey , prosecuted the case.

Alex Ovechkin, Braden Holtby and the Washington Capitals stayed cool in the 100-degree Vegas heat and evened the Stanley Cup Final. His puck-moving skills helped stymie Vegas's feared forecheck, like the head fake and backhanded pass that he threw with 40 seconds remaining and opposing goalie Marc-Andre Fleury pulled. Game 5 will be back in Vegas next Thursday.

Both coaches used the Vegas ice quality to emphasize points in their game plan that would probably be important on any surface.

That is the type of save the Capitals needed to hold on to a third-period lead in a Stanley Cup Final.

Imagine Dragons kicked up the pregame festivities a notch, playing its hit "Whatever It Takes", following the Vegas Golden Knights' elaborate show that precedes each game. He's the Capitals' No. 1 center. And then they bring out Michael Buffer last night, so that's an added thing.

The Russian superstar led the National Hockey League with 49 goals in the regular season and added 12 more in the Eastern Conference playoffs. We thought we were going to win the Stanley Cup.

Some of those gathered were holding the hottest ticket in town. We can go out and win games on the road. But the Golden Knights failed to score with that two-man advantage, with Holtby repeatedly coming up big.

We need to be courageous , we need to make investment, we need to spend money to survive or to make a more important step. Steve Bruce's side were unable to show off their financial power this season due also to Financial Fair Play rules.

The Strip has hosted countless events over the years, featuring stars on stage and in the ring.

Several months ago, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority set out to market the city as the sports capital of the world.

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.

The Golden Knights, too, immediately knew what the Save meant: the series would be even as it moved east to Washington.

"(Wednesday) night they didn't have the offensive outburst they usually have", said Gallant. "Something that will go down in Washington Capitals lore".
