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

Braden Holtby reacted with pure instinct.

"Luckily it hit me", Holtby said with a shrug. Great save. You could see the emotion on our bench. "He's a veteran player who has good hockey sense, and he's strong on the puck, and I think his game translates well in the playoffs". He was unable to return as Washington would go on to win 3-2 to even the series. "That's one of our strengths".

"Once he made that save, I knew we were gonna win the game", added Washington coach Barry Trotz.

The Washington Capitals have the advantage in the Stanley Cup Final. He capped his energetic performance with that jaw-dropping stick save on Tuch with 1:59 to play.

"It's obviously pretty easy to stay focused", said Caps forward Jay Beagle.

"Maybe the save of a lifetime", the Caps' veteran centre noted. To do that in the Western Conference, a graveyard of teams that have won the Stanley Cup, Chicago, the L.A. Kings, the Ducks, San Jose just went to the Cup not that long ago, and they chewed up everybody.

"I don't know how to say it", Ovechkin said.

"Every time we have faced adversity, everyone steps up", Eller said.

Kuznetsov, who tops the post-season scoring race with 25 points, took a big hit from Brayden McNabb later in the period and crumpled to the ice holding his left arm.

The Golden Knights were threatening the Capitals' goal when the exchange occurred. Marc-Andre Fleury allowed three goals on 26 shots to absorb the loss and miss out on an opportunity to help the Golden Knights to a 2-0 series lead. Melrose said Game 1 had plenty of mistakes, but it was entertaining, and it stood out for the Golden Knights' speed and for their penalty kill.

The Golden Knights exceeded expectations and many people are just three wins away from watching history and seeing their bank account jump a few thousands dollars. "We've done it all playoffs". Washington was swept by Detroit in its only other Final appearance, in 1998.

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.

But if Kuznetsov can't go in Game 3, or beyond, how will the Capitals attempt to fill the significant void? Trotz did not provide an update when asked about Kuznetsov's status at his press conference.

"We don't have the last change, so you can match up what you want", said Gallant.

"I think this group has learned so much". Anything they can put a jersey on, they've got a jersey on; statues, buildings, it's insane. "We're going to push on'". It's board battles and working all game for a chance, which usually is the result of a deflected puck or a mad scramble in front of the net.

In the Washington locker room, Ovechkin struggled to find words.

The Golden Knights trailed 3-2 entering the final 20 minutes but couldn't net the equalizer despite a 15 shot barrage.

Vegas continued its pressure early in the third, forcing Washington into two early penalties. All of those nine goals have come in the first period, and six of them have come in the opening eight minutes.

In order to win Lord Stanley's Cup, the Washington Capitals would have to prove themselves.
