Stanley Cup Final: Capitals edge Golden Knights to even series

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

But the Capitals are just 4-5 at home in these playoffs, and apart from a 3-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final that staved off elimination, have yet to really get going in front of their own fans. Trotz did not provide an update when asked about Kuznetsov's status at his press conference.

The Knights continued to push and pulled Fleury for an extra attacker, but Holtby and the Capitals kept them off the scoreboard the rest of the way to knot the series and wrestle away home-ice advantage. Kuznetsov left the game and did not return.

Guess your first appearance in the Cup Final in 20 years will lead to that, but whatever, Becky.

The Golden Knights boast an 11-1 record when opening the scoring this season, but Eller struck his first blow for the Capitals with just under three minutes remaining in the opening period before setting up Washington's go-ahead power-play goal in the second.

"It's the same for both teams, which is why it doesn't matter", Vegas forward James Neal said.

Fulham defeat Aston Villa in Championship play-off final to reach Premier League
And now, Sessegnon will be playing Premier League football come August, with Fulham fans undoubtedly hoping it will be with them. Aston Villa were denied the chance to return to the Premier League after a crushing 1-0 defeat at Wembley.

The Vegas Golden Knights have shocked the sporting world by playing for a championship in their inaugural season. Former Capitals goalie Olaf Kolzig said it was the greatest save he'd ever seen. Benched when the playoffs began, the 2015-16 Vezina Trophy victor had allowed an uncharacteristically high five goals during a Game 1 loss, including four at even strength.

I used to be a huge "let the boys play" kinda guy when it came to officiating, but following the 2004 lockout and seeing what the game could be when low-skill, low-speed players weren't allowed to make elite players slog through sticks, arms and cross-checks, that went out the window.

"We refocus and pick each other up and that's a sign of a good team", Holtby said.

"I think this group has learned so much".

A verbose talker of clergyman quality, Trotz bows not to conventional deities but higher hockey powers. Anything they can put a jersey on, they've got a jersey on; statues, buildings, it's insane. Tuch, who was in flawless position in front of the open net, one-timed the puck. The Caps avoided any hotheaded retaliation and concentrated on a gritty effort that was enough to even the series.

New Assassin's Creed game apparently leaked by collectible keychain
Ahead of E3, the setting of the next Assassin's Creed game appeared to leak. E3 is nearly here, so expect a full reveal during the big show.

Instead, the Baldwinsville native found himself on the wrong side of one of the most memorable moments of this year's National Hockey League playoffs.

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.

Vegas continued its pressure early in the third, forcing Washington into two early penalties.

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.

In order to win Lord Stanley's Cup, the Washington Capitals would have to prove themselves.
