This team from Washington is an excellent hockey club, and obviously this series isn't going to go four games. He was helpless on both knees instead, left skate sealed against the far post, shoulders and chest squared toward the visiting bench, where captain Alex Ovechkin would soon perform one damn accurate Kevin McCallister impression upon witnessing what miracles the Washington Capitals goalie somehow conjured next.
Eller continued his dominant play by carrying the puck into Vegas' zone and leaving a drop pass for Orpik, whose shot from the right circle deflected off Tuch past Marc-Andre Fleury to extend the Capitals lead to 3-1 at 9:41.
"Holts just makes the save of the year", Washington forward Jay Beagle said. "It's just one of those games, even at the end, with Tuchy having that chance". The list goes on, mostly for small-dollar "souvenir" bets, forcing casinos to brace for heavy losses. "He's one of the true pros of the game".

He said: "It's been a unusual season, obviously there's been a lot of speculation for however many months now". He did very well, seeing Napoli play is a spectacle.
Physicality has been in the forefront of the Capitals' game all season, and Vegas wants to match it in the Stanley Cup finals.
With center Evgeny Kuznetsov shelved by a hard hit that left him hunched over and wincing in pain-and Nicklas Backstrom basically stickhandling with nine adult fingers and one baby eggplant-Lars Eller delivered a goal and two assists.
"I don't know if it was the empty building or - just like everything - it needs to cure a bit, but I thought it was really good (at practice)", Trotz said.
OGRA recommends Rs8 hike in petrol price
The regulator also recommended Rs8.23 and Rs11.65 per litre increase in the prices of kerosene and LDO respectively. After a constant hike for over 16 days, petrol and diesel prices have dipped for the first time by 1 paisa .
Added star winger Alex Ovechkin: "Thank god he's our goalie". And 5:38 into the second period, with the game tied at 1-all and the Capitals on a power play, Ovechkin scored his first career Stanley Cup Final goal to give the Capitals the lead.
Trotz said he's aware of the video game tournaments and that's fine by him. TV can show you the systems and the replays and stuff like that that are great, but you can't capture the buzz, the excitement, the noise, the seats shaking because of people stamping their feet, the smell of the ice, the feel of the frozen ice coming up in your face. It's no excuse for us. But with home-ice advantage, the impossible looked possible in the Stanley Cup finals - even more so after Game 1 on Monday, a sloppy 6-4 affair that still showcased Vegas at its opportunistic best. The Golden Knights also had 12 turnovers compared to Washington's four. You can catch the game on Sportsnet 650. They'll have to play smarter in Game 3 and beyond, especially if the games remain as tight as the first few.
In fact, Holtby's save was eerily similar to this particular save made by Thomas on Steve Downie in Game 5 of the 2011 Eastern Conference finals. 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 then answered back with a Globetrotter-esque tic-tac-toe passing play between Andre Burakovsky, Michal Kempny and Lars Eller.

NOTES: The Golden Knights have scored the opening goal in the first period of all nine of their postseason home games.
