Capitals center listed as day to day for Game 3

02 June 2018

"I try to disconnect myself from social media", he said.

The NHL tweeted a GIF of the save with the simple caption: "ARE YOU KIDDING?!"

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

Coach Barry Trotz provided no update on Kuznetsov on Thursday other than to say the Russian center is day to day.

"Greatest save I've ever seen", tweeted former Caps' goaltender Olie Kolzig, who's seen and saved more than a few in his days in the crease, which include the Caps' last trip to the finals in 1998.

That's when Holtby decided to make the best save of the 2018 NHL Playoffs. Nearly three minutes remained when Holtby stymied Tuch, preserving a 3-2 lead that lasted until the final horn and secured the first Stanley Cup Final victory in the Capitals' 43-year history. It's one of those things to help us win a game. "That's one of our strengths". "Of course it's very important to see him skating and I'm pretty sure he's going to be OK (for Game 3)".

ABC gets it, but Roseanne Barr and Donald Trump do not
Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the disgusting statements " that have been said about him on ABC". She also faulted Iger for not apologizing to Trump after ESPN personality Jemele Hill called Trump a "white supremacist".

The Capitals will host their first Stanley Cup game in 20 years on Saturday. He capped his energetic performance with that jaw-dropping stick save on Tuch with 1:59 to play. "Maybe the save of a lifetime". To do that in the Western Conference, a graveyard of teams that have won the Stanley Cup, Chicago, the L.A. Kings, the Ducks, San Jose just went to the Cup not that long ago, and they chewed up everybody.

"You need everyone at this time of year", said Tom Wilson, Kuznetsov's other usual winger.

Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb hammered Washington's first-line forward Evgeny Kuznetsov, sending him to the dressing room with a little more than five minutes left in the first period.

Yet, after the Golden Knights' victory, we're talking about a dirty hit and a missed call leading to a goal.

The Golden Knights aren't sweating the loss in Game 2 even though they weren't sharp enough with the puck, fed Washington's transition game, and didn't generate enough Grade A chances in front of Holtby because they didn't win the battles to get to the front of the net. "We're a special group". Many planned to simply soak up the atmosphere while watching the game on big screens outside the arena with thousands of new friends. But we're seeing it here, with two teams that had no prior playoff history heading into this series.

With Alex Tuch in the box for a cross-check on John Carlson, the Capitals' lethal power play - and one of their key advantages in the series - set up, and took over.

NFL Owner Admits Changing Mind About Signing Kaepernick After Trump Comments
The anthem debate has created a firestorm ever since Kaepernick declined to kneel for it during the 2016 preseason. Teams will be fined if there are players who don't stand and show proper respect during the anthem.

Beyond the "How good will he be?" questions, most fans want to know where he'll go. The game immediately took on a nastier tone, and the teams played 4-on-4 hockey moments later after a prolonged scrum led to two penalties. Trotz did not provide an update when asked about Kuznetsov's status at his press conference. "I think every team is aware of what's going to happen". Anything they can put a jersey on, they've got a jersey on; statues, buildings, it's insane. I think you'd be hard-pressed to find somebody who's rooting for the Capitals no matter how good they are. "It's another layer of adversity that we have to go through all the time".

Washington attacked and evened it shortly afterward with a goal from Eller, who had failed to hit an open net on a rushed play for a potential tying goal late in Game 1.

After killing off a penalty early in the second period, Washington pushed ahead on a power play of its own at 5:38 when Ovechkin scored his 13th goal of the playoffs from a tight angle thanks to Eller's slick cross-ice pass.

Over his National Hockey League career, Holtby has a 2.04 GAA and.929 save percentage in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The first two games were different too.

The Knights have scored first in all nine of their playoff home games, with each occurring in the first period and six coming in the first eight minutes.

Why is South China Sea so highly contested?
It is, however, unclear if USA actions can successfully reverse current trends in the South China Sea given China's level of entrenchment.

Shea Theodore replied but the Caps held on for a first Stanley Cup game win before hosting games three and four.
