Stanley Cup finals: Baldwinsville's Alex Tuch robbed by spectacular save

Tom Wilson laid out Vegas Jonathan Marchessault with a huge late hit

Braden Holtby was not. There was plenty of space for Tuch to put the equalizer in the back of the net.

"I've seen a lot of those kind of saves before", said defenceman John Carlson, "but with the magnitude of the situation and just how strong he had to be. that was probably nicest one I've seen".

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

The Washington Capitals stayed alive in the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday with a 3-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights to even the series at 1-1.

So perhaps it was fitting that Washington earned the first Cup Final win in its history on the road.

"I was praying like insane", Capitals counterpart Barry Trotz said moments later.

Vosding is just one of many who took that same bet at different casinos around Vegas and hears how the majority of them are looking right now. "I think that's the message that went out to everybody, so you won't see anybody gambling, you won't see anybody out in the sun for eight hours a time". That's the type of save the Capitals need in order to win a first-ever Stanley Cup. (They said), 'Let me go make a $50 bet and then go to the hockey game.' After like 20 games, they said, 'Here's a great date night. "You hate to lose one of your best players, and hopefully we'll have [Kuznetsov] back soon, but we showed tonight and we've showed in the past that we can win even when one of our best players go down". "That's one of our strengths".

Game 3 is at Washington on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS).

"The Washington Capitals are in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1998, and this is the first finals series since 2007 where neither team has previously won the Stanley Cup", Andrea Farmer, Maryland Department of Transportation MTA's director of MARC train, said in a statement.

"Maybe the save of a lifetime", the Caps' veteran centre noted.

He says backing the expansion team is like backing baseball's Chicago Cubs.

"Thank God he's our goalie", Ovechkin said.

As the new Raiders stadium continues to be built in the desert, Davis has been very present at the sporting events for Las Vegas' other professional team, the Golden Knights.

In a show like The Walking Dead , as the title suggests , death lurks around every corner - literally. Scott Gimple has been announced to be the Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead universe at AMC.

The phrase suited the mayhem of the first three rounds, when the Golden Knights stampeded through the Western Conference bracket, clobbering two inferior teams in San Jose and Los Angeles and a third, Winnipeg, which was exhausted from a bruising seven-game series against Nashville. "We're a special group".

In a chaotic game busy with collisions and vengeance, wicked shots and pretty passes, smart decisions and dumb luck, sometimes there's a singular moment that transcends hockey's lovely mess. "We've done it all playoffs".

Should that happen, the National Hockey League will likely see the hottest outdoor temperature ever recorded at a Final game - as well as a rink full of slushy, melting ice.

Holtby didn't have time to slide to his right, and as Tuch fired, the goaltender extended himself as far as he could.

Shortly after Neal opened the scoring for Vegas in Game 2, Kuznetsov went straight to the dressing room after absorbing a high check from McNabb.

But Eller again took advantage of the opportunity to play an increased role, scoring a 4-on-4 goal with 2:33 left in the first period to tie it 1-1.

Trotz gave no postgame update on Kuznetsov's condition. They've gotten so resilient.

"He's our rock back there", said Beagle. "We're going to push on'". There were 10 goals scored in Game 1 and another five in Game 2.

The Caps then got a thoroughly unlikely contribution from Orpik, whose deflected shot bounced fortuitously off the ice and beat Fleury. It was his first goal since February 26, 2016.

The persistent Knights earned a power play and cut the Caps' lead to 3-2 late in the second on Theodore's shot through traffic.

With 1:59 remaining of a one-goal game, the Golden Knights dumped the puck into the offensive zone and gave chase.

With extra space, Washington strung together several sharp passes culminating in Eller's sixth goal of the postseason.
