"Thank God he's our goalie", Ovechkin said.
Washington overcame another big blow when it lost leading scorer Evgeny Kuznetsov to an upper-body injury in the first period after a big hit from Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb, but the Caps avoided any hotheaded retaliation and concentrated on a gritty effort that was enough to even the series.
Washington also showed its mettle on the penalty kill, limiting the Golden Knights to a single goal in four attempts - including a 5-on-3 on the third period. 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.
This is the Golden Knights' inaugural season and were 500-1 odds to win at the start of the season. "We're a special group". "There's been a lot more desperation in a few of those road games".

The team that General Manager George McPhee assembled in the first expansion draft of the salary-cap era capitalized on underappreciated assets, onerous contracts and what he called "unknown surprises" - players who would develop into mainstays.

Wilson took exception to the shove and came flying into the play.
Trotz gave no postgame update on Kuznetsov's condition.

"I think I was past surprising when they finished first in their conference". Anything they can put a jersey on, they've got a jersey on; statues, buildings, it's insane.
"You're thinking there's no way that bounces to them across the crease and then comes back across", Beagle said. "There's some areas that we've still go to adjust, but it was a step forward". Tuch, who was in ideal position in front of the open net, one-timed the puck.
In the Washington locker room, Ovechkin struggled to find words. Many Stanley Cup futures tickets were written on the Golden Knights many months ago at very long odds, because no one in their right mind would have a 1st year team winning the Stanley Cup, let alone qualifying for the playoffs or even advancing that far if they made the playoffs.
