Here's hoping thrilling Stanley Cup final goes distance — TRAIKOS

His puck-moving skills helped stymie Vegas's feared forecheck, like the head fake and backhanded pass that he threw with 40 seconds remaining and opposing goalie Marc-Andre Fleury pulled.
Two games in, I'm calling it: this Stanley Cup final will not be a dud. He recorded three hits in the loss.
As a questioner aptly deadpanned to Washington coach Barry Trotz prior to Game 2 Wednesday, "It turns out there's a lot to do in this town on the off nights".
Vegas continued its pressure early in the third, forcing Washington into two early penalties.
Guess your first appearance in the Cup Final in 20 years will lead to that, but whatever, Becky.
But onto the mounting pile of evidence that this Capitals team is indeed different than those also-rans goes their resiliency in evening the series with the Golden Knights at 1-1 following a 3-2 win on Wednesday night.
Vegas leads the series 1-0. And then they bring out Michael Buffer last night, so that's an added thing.
Remember that save? Remember how Braden Holtby literally stole a 3-2 win away from the Vegas Golden Knights? The Caps have one of the best players in the NHL in Alex Ovechkin, but this team has been on such an awesome run in their first season in the league, that they may be a product of destiny.
But the relentless Knights earned a power play and cut the Caps' lead to 3-2 late in the second when Theodore slipped a long shot through heavy traffic. It would be more hard to sustain that effort and adrenaline for an entire game without him, though it's a test they passed without Backstrom earlier in the playoffs.
The series shifts to Washington for Games 3 and 4.
It was 98 degrees at game time in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas area is starting to boom in terms of sports, and the Raiders will likely benefit from the work the Golden Knights have already begun. The others were Game 2 of the 1936 quarterfinals (Chicago 5, NY Americans 4) and Game 2 of the 1992 Smythe Division semifinals (Los Angeles 8, Edmonton 5). With Kuznetsov potentially out for the next game, Washington will need more of that if it intends on winning its first championship.
The Capitals have made the playoffs in 13 of 19 seasons since their only other trip to the Final in 1998, but hadn't managed to get their fans back to the final round until this year. He eventually pushed defender Dmitry Orlov in the back. "If you look at it as a whole, we played really well for parts of the first period and we got caught up in the transition game in the second period - and that's not the game we want to play". Kuznetsov is one of of only two Caps players (Ovechkin) with double digits in Capitals goals (11) during their Stanley Cup Final run.
Hours before Vegas hosted Washington in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, fans filed in the plaza outside T-Mobile Arena on a 98-degree day in the desert.
