Capitals Edge Knights In Game Two Of Finals

We knew it wasn't going to be easy. The Vegas Golden Knights missed a couple of golden opportunities last night and dropped game two of the Stanley Cup Finals, 3-2, to the Washington Capitals. With the win, Washington has tied the series at one game apiece and stolen home ice advantage away from the Knights. The Knights must now win one game on the road to wrest back home ice. The series moves to Washington D.C. now for game three on Saturday night. The Knights were a bit less than sharp last night and trailed 3-1 before Shea Theodore scored a power play goal to pull the Knights within 3-2. The Knights then had a five on three power play opportunity but it was killed by the Capitals. Washington goalie Braden Holtby then made a tremendous save on what could've been the game tying goal on a close in shot by Alex Tuch. The Golden Knights have shown tremendous resilience throughout the playoffs and will need more of the same in Washington this weekend.
