Capitals Flying High Over Knights, Leading 2-1 in Stanley Cup Final
Washington Capitals Beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 on Saturday Night
For the first time since 1998 the Capitals hosted a Stanley Cup game, and their stars Ovechkin and Kuznetsov didn’t disappoint. The game was Washington’s first ever win on home ice during a Stanley Cup Final.
Kuznetsov was a game-time decision, but he looked fine and after scoring. He even did his bird-flapping celebration as Ovechkin screamed on the bench. Kuznetsov now leads all players with 27 points in the NHL playoffs.
Holtby stopped 21 of the 22 shots he faced to put Washington two wins away from the franchise’s first title.
Vegas, on the other hand, has now lost back-to-back games for the first time in the playoffs. They could have possibly been shutout if it wasn’t for a mistake by Holtby that ended up in the net.
Game 4 is tonight in Washington.
