MTA adds postgame trains for Capitals' Stanley Cup Final games in Washington

Raiders owner Mark Davis has a real love affair with Las Vegas

"Good response by all of us", said captain Alex Ovechkin.

Holtby's performance guaranteed that this whiplash series is now tied heading back to Washington.

If Kuznetsov misses time in the Stanley Cup Final, the Capitals are practiced in the art of resiliency.

With sizzling heat outside and a frenzied sellout crowd inside, T-Mobile Arena's ice melted into an inconsistent playing surface for the Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals in the series opener. The Caps were two minutes away from the win but victory hardly felt assured.

Washington then answered back with a Globetrotter-esque tic-tac-toe passing play between Andre Burakovsky, Michal Kempny and Lars Eller.

The same fire that lifted the Capitals until it was time to form a celebration line in front of Holtby, pull his mask close, and whisper thanks for what their goalie had done. Eakin fired a pass to winger Alex Tuch, who had what appeared to be an easy wrist shot before Holtby leaped across, stopping the shot with his paddle before controlling the puck. The calendar just turned to June, which means hockey should be over by now.

Orpik wasn't available to the media after the game because he was getting stitches from the Capitals' medical staff.

"I've got to bury that", Tuch said. "But then I was like, 'Oh yes'". "I have three or four years left in my tank where I can compete at the highest level...that's why I'm here and that's why I want to sign in the National Hockey League". He was probably telling me to shut up. But the focus was squarely on Kuznetsov, who didn't seem to be favouring anything as he went through a series of drills with teammates.

Discussing Vegas's success on ESPN's "Outside the Lines", Keith Olbermann made a keen observation on Tuesday when he noted that numerous Golden Knights are second- and third-liners, which helps Vegas match up well against opponents' second lines and gives it a theoretical advantage against their third and fourth lines.

"We shot ourselves in the foot a few times with some turnovers", Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt said.

Holtby, who made 37 saves in the win, wasn't as overwhelmed by the play, which went viral quickly.

Here's who we're looking at this week. But it was the Save that had everyone buzzing.

Kuznetsov has been fairly durable throughout his career, something that Trotz has seen first-hand in his four years behind Washington's bench.

Holtby wasn't flipping through his phone, liking tweets or replaying the video.

"I try to disconnect myself from social media", Holtby said. Whoever has to step up to make plays, we're all there as a team to support each other. We didn't get the job done, and I'll remember that the rest of my life, but I was able to coach a great group of guys, and I've stayed friends with all of them for 25 years.

"We refocus and pick each other up and that's a sign of a good team", Holtby said. "We have a goal in mind that's a lot bigger than some save and social media". But Caps' fans will - throughout this series and very likely for years to come.
