A goal from the most unlikely source and a jaw-dropping save has the Washington Capitals back on even terms in the Stanley Cup final. It's good to see him get out there and feel the puck.

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.

While it's highly likely that he's a step or two slower, he's always been a crucial guy for his National Hockey League teams, from his do-everything days with the Atlanta Thrashers to his impressive, too-short run with the New Jersey Devils.

The best-of-7 series is tied 1-1.

The save obviously was huge, as the series now shifts to the nation's capital tied at one game apiece.

The Capitals will host their first Stanley Cup game in 20 years on Saturday.

No. 8 tallied his first ever championship series goal in his fifth period on the grandest stage, burying one on the power play to give Washington the lead in Game 2. The Vegas Golden Knights will continue to look for scoring from all four lines, while the Caps will need more production from their captain, Alex Ovechkin, if they're going to win; he had just a single point Monday night (an assist).

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.

Washington is 4-5 at home in the playoffs.

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. It seemed a sure goal because he was below the left circle and within point-blank range of goaltender Braden Holtby when he shot.

The officials spoke Thursday to the AP on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the investigation. Lawyers for the film producer have said all allegations that he forced himself on women were "entirely without merit".

"I think it's really important that we take a step back and take a deep breath and know that you're not going to win this series in two games", Vegas defenseman Nate Schmidt said.

Both coaches used the Vegas ice quality to emphasize points in their game plan that would probably be important on any surface.

The southbound train will run on its regular schedule to Washington, and an extra northbound train on the MARC Penn Line will depart one hour after each game ends, as well as the normally scheduled train that will leave the station before the end of the third period.

He said the excitement around the Golden Knights is palpable in Vegas.

The Washington Capitals trail Vegas 1-0 but are used to playing from behind. Eller had a goal and an assist in Game 5 against Pittsburgh; he had two goals and three assists in the first three games against the Lightning.
