'A magical story': Golden Knights, Capitals to face-off in Game 2

The people I love, the fact that hockey's the number-one sport there...obviously at ESPN, it's a very big sports station, and sometimes hockey gets lost when some of the other sports are on. You can catch the game on Sportsnet 650.

"The arena gives you the feeling you can't get on TV". "You see one of your best players go down and you're pissed off, that's part of it". You can't get that unless you're there in person. Imagine Kovalchuk going back to the Devils to help ease the burden of Taylor Hall, especially now that New Jersey's style is about 10x more fun.

Donna Tomlinson and her daughters Kayla and Logan are big fans of the Golden Knights.

Neither could this fan, watching the game with 14,000 of his closest friends at Capital One Arena. The Danish forward failed to hit an open net on a rushed play for a potential tying goal late in Game 1. "They beat us up pretty good".

Imagine Dragons kicked up the pregame festivities a notch, playing its hit "Whatever It Takes", following the Vegas Golden Knights' elaborate show that precedes each game. They've gotten so resilient. And everyone's talking hockey.

Washington's Jakub Vrana nearly restored the two-score lead late in the second period, but hit the right post much to the delight of Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. "I wouldn't be running around just to collect the money", Kovalchuk said. "This group has learned so much".

He says backing the expansion team is like backing baseball's Chicago Cubs. It would be disappointing if there were as many as eight teams who weren't interested. This is the real deal.

A franchise that didn't exist a year ago was four wins (now three) from the Stanley Cup and a team that hasn't sniffed the Stanley Cup Final since America Online was the dominant internet service provider finally found their way back. 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. "Maybe the save of a lifetime", Capitals forward Jay Beagle added. The team prevailed, but can they do it again if he misses any more time?

Shortly afterward, Kuznetsov went straight to the dressing room after absorbing a high check from McNabb. It's going to go a lot longer than that.

The album, which is 7 tracks in length, was shared to Spotify , Tidal, and Apple Music , complete with writing and production credits.

Washington is 4-5 at home in the playoffs.

The same way Wilson's hit on Vegas leading scorer Jonathan Marchessault in Game 1 sparked the Knights, the collision seemed to wake up the Capitals as Eller finished off a nice passing play by scoring his sixth with 2:33 left on the clock.

"The speed in Vegas, they're quicker than the Caps, they've been quicker than everybody".

The Caps improved to 9-3 on the road in the postseason after two games in this frequently chaotic series.

But before any Canadians develop heatstroke at the prospect of their national game being played in a Nevada swimming pool, players on both teams were eager to make it clear the Vegas ice is absolutely playable. "It was an entertaining hockey game, but if you're a hockey person, it wasn't played that well". The list goes on, mostly for small-dollar "souvenir" bets, forcing casinos to brace for heavy losses.

"My memories are so good, but when I remember that series, it's not with fondness, obviously".

"I imagine he feels great". It was a fantastic time. That's the type of save the Capitals need in order to win a first-ever Stanley Cup. We get to share in this with them. "But it's a bittersweet memory, that series".

The southbound train will run on its regular schedule to Washington, and an extra northbound train on the MARC Penn Line will depart one hour after each game ends, as well as the normally scheduled train that will leave the station before the end of the third period.
