Caps' Kuznetsov practises but status unclear for Game 3

  • Raiders owner Mark Davis has a real love affair with Las Vegas

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.

Anyways, Kuznetsov did not return to the game and everyone is wondering if he'll play tomorrow night. It's good to see him get out there and feel the puck.

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

The best-of-seven series is tied at one game apiece.

NHL Network is doing extensive on-site coverage of the Stanley Cup Final, with NHL Now, NHL Tonight, and pre- and post-game shows on game nights, featuring a lineup of analysts that includes E.J. Hradek, Mike Johnson, Brian Lawton, Barry Melrose, Mike Rupp, and Kevin Weekes.

Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby makes a diving stick-save on Vegas Golden Knights' Alex Tuch during the third period in Game 2 at T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, on May 30, 2018.

The goal was the fifth of the postseason for Neal, the gifted scorer left unprotected in last summer's expansion draft after reaching the Final with Nashville.

Vosding is just one of many who took that same bet at different casinos around Vegas and hears how the majority of them are looking right now.

Washington is 4-5 at home in the playoffs.

Washington handed the Golden Knights only their second home defeat - the first in regulation - in Vegas' nine postseason games.

Vegas' top line of William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith combined for two goals in a 6-4 win in Game 1, but were held off without an even-strength point and went a combined minus-2 in a 3-2 loss in Game 2. This season, the Knights have managed to unite the community and made hockey fans around the country take notice. "Vegas is going to be here for a long time".

"Just being in the Stanley Cup finals is absolutely awesome".

The Washington Capitals trail Vegas 1-0 but are used to playing from behind.

Washington won its first two games against Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference finals, but then lost three straight, forcing the franchise to win two decisive games to advance. We thought we were going to win the Stanley Cup. Most of the Capitals reported better conditions during practice at T-Mobile on Tuesday - although the arena also wasn't filled with more than 18,575 screaming, sweating people.

Some of those gathered were holding the hottest ticket in town. "There's been a lot more desperation in a few of those road games".

Donna Tomlinson and her daughters Kayla and Logan are big fans of the Golden Knights.

The Strip has hosted countless events over the years, featuring stars on stage and in the ring. "I didn't really think anything of it until halfway through the season".

NOTES: The first two games of the Final were split for only the third time in the last 13 editions.

Luckily for Washington, the Golden Knights were only able to convert once on the man-advantage. (Wednesday) night they didn't have the offensive outburst they usually have.
