Later, taking Kuznetsov's spot to the right of the net on the first power-play unit, Eller fed Alex Ovechkin in the bottom of the left circle for a power-play goal that gave Washington a 2-1 lead at 5:38 of the second period.
The wild bounce out to Cody Eakin: If he's on the post, he stays on the puck as it goes through the crease, and he uses the post to push off to get ahead of the next sequence before it develops.
"A player who is behind an opponent, who does not have the puck, may not use his stick, body or free hand in order to restrain his opponent, but must skate in order to gain or reestablish his proper position in order to make a check".
Coach Barry Trotz says Evgeny Kuznetsov is day-to-day, but did not provide any further information. That's the type of save the Capitals need in order to win a first-ever Stanley Cup.
The reaction from fans and players was priceless.
Added star winger Alex Ovechkin: "Thank god he's our goalie". It seemingly was going in, but a sideways Holtby made the stop.
"We have to do the same things [at home] that we did tonight, try to dictate the play, make them turn over pucks".
"It's the same for both teams, which is why it doesn't matter", Vegas forward James Neal said. "It feels good and I'm sure it feels great for him, too". "Holt just made the save of the year". "Maybe the save of a lifetime". Washington then answered back with a Globetrotter-esque tic-tac-toe passing play between Andre Burakovsky, Michal Kempny and Lars Eller.
"I just stopped dead in my tracks, I was so excited", Lorin Hranicka, Monumental's director of suite client services, told Allen. He's one of those guys to see him get rewarded on the score sheet is exciting to me.
Holtby: "Luckily it hit me".
Kuznetsov suffered the injury on a hard hit by the Golden Knights' Braden McNabb with just more than five minutes to play in the first period.
Vegas unraveled and gave up more uncharacteristic chances in front of Marc-Andre Fleury, who has yet to lose consecutive games this postseason. Will Vegas head to Washington up two games, or can the Caps bring it back home tied 1-1? Trotz joked it's just more "adversity" the #Caps will have to overcome.
"I mean it's their home town", Knatz said. "It's changed. You have to play a little different than in the past with the speed and the way the game is mostly all about offence now", he explains. I could never root against Tampa, but that's a big difference in payout.
"It looks bad on paper, but this year I think is one of those years where I've learned more and soaked in more knowledge than previous years".

Wednesday's 37-save epic illustrates his uncanny ability to park disappointment. "Fifteen games? Didn't even think about it", said Jimmy Vaccaro, the legendary Vegas oddsmaker who now oversees the South Point sports book.
