Capitals visit Golden Knights in Stanley Cup rematch

Capitals visit Golden Knights in Stanley Cup rematch

Tuesday night in Vegas, Wilson wound up on the other side of the drama, though, as the Golden Knights saw their own resident 225-pounder take Wilson out of the game with a blindside hit late in the second period - resulting in an injury to the Capitals' winger and an ejection for Vegas's Ryan Reaves.

"We talked about it on the way in", said Caps coach Todd Reirden after Monday's practice. "We have a unique group of guys on our team". Holtby said the blessing in disguise of that jarring loss, which snapped a seven-game win streak, is that it forces the team to remember the task at hand rather than get wrapped up in the past. I think everyone is pretty much sitting where they sat past year, I know I am.

Reaves, meanwhile, was hit with a five-minute major for interference and was then ejected. Probably. But this hit wasn't anything we haven't seen from Tom Wilson in the past. "I thought it was shoulder to shoulder and I didn't think it was that late". Of all the memories from the team's raucous Stanley Cup celebrations, the champagne- and beer-soaked start in the dressing room right after Washington first got its hands on the trophy with a Game 5 win remains the most meaningful for players. Big hits, bigger goals, and all around excitement filled the T-Mobile Arena last night as the Golden Knights won a back-and-forth thriller, by a score of 5-3. When you play on the edge and go after opposition players like Wilson does, eventually, they're going to get you back. A bit of "Vegas Hangover", maybe? But Vegas is actually getting more production from its second unit, a newly cobbled threesome of Max Pacioretty, Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch. Holtby also stopped 23 shots. The Eakin line has combined for 28 goals while seeing less ice time than the top unit.

"They play a fast game, especially in this building", says Reirden of the Knights.

Back at even strength, Vegas tied the game on a Pierre-Edouard Bellemare tip out front.

Vrana notched his second goal of the game and eighth of the campaign when he one-timed a pass from Evgeny Kuznetsov past a shielded Fleury, who had Vegas defender Nick Holden blocking his view. I guess we will just have to see what happens.

Vrana tied the game late in the period, and Ovechkin threaded a backhand from a sharp angle for his 20th goal and a 2-1 lead during the second period. And, they've been outscored 44-18 in those 11 games.

The Golden Knights are 0-5 in the last five meetings.
