Kuznetsov game-time decision for Game 3 of Stanley Cup Final

With a league-leading 31 points, Kuznetsov is making a case to be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor as playoff MVP. Marc-Andre Fleury still hasn't been the monster he was through the first three rounds.

Since winning Game 1 by a 6-4 count, the.

The Washington Capitals keep winning, and now they are on the brink of securing their first Stanley Cup championship.

Coach Gerard Gallant insisted: "Tonight's game was a step forward". He's a physical presence back there and maybe gives guys a second less to think with the puck, I guess you could say, and maybe rush a play or something if they don't want to get hit. "We changed some things up, worked a little bit harder".

Fleury has struggled so far this series as he has given up at least three goals in each of the team's three Stanley Cup games this season.

The Golden Knights had just 22 shots on goal Saturday; they had 26 shots blocked.

And speaking to Spanish radio station COPE , Griezmann said: "If I'm going to continue at Atletico, I don't know, we'll see". United have a good relationship with Dortmund, the two teams spoke, but Sokratis chose to go to Arsenal .


Washington used a strong first period to set the tone for victory.

"It feels better every day", Kuznetsov said. "It's a privilege to play with him".

Heck, they could spend another lifetime in this sport and never find themselves in a better one. That run gave the Devils hope they found a part of their future, but Smith-Pelly finished with four goals and five assists in 53 games in 2016-17, where he said he played injured for a good portion of the season. "Right when you want to just chip it and go, there's a guy, there's a wall there, and guys are ready to go back and get it on the other side".

Vegas nearly opened the scoring but sent one shot off the side of the net, while another hit the post with Capitals goalie Braden Holtby out of position on both efforts.

"We've lost games before, we've lost games in the playoffs and we've bounced back", Reaves said. "I thought a crab was flawless to represent our area". "It's probably a different game after that". The Vegas Knights are not "done", but it's once again clear they must stick to their strategy against a more talented side.

"He made a couple mistakes, ended up in the back of our net", Gallant said.

Cordell said she would work to change California's recall law so judges can not be ousted for making a lawful judgment call. Early returns showed the recall effort leading, with 59 percent of voters supporting the recall and 40 percent opposing it.


"Offensive teams have certain tendencies, certain routes that they take through the neutral zone, plays they like to make", Washington defenseman Matt Niskanen said. "When he's confident, he's making saves where even when they're real tough opportunities, he makes it look relatively easy and he nearly does it with, I hate to use the word cocky, but there's nearly a cockiness to the way he makes a save".

The Golden Knights didn't have a lot of stellar chances besides that, and the Capitals countered with goals by Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Devante Smith-Pelly.

"The town is insane right now", captain Alex Ovechkin said after the morning skate, foreshadowing the wild scene inside the building and the roars of thousands outside after the game.

"I was shocked. Losing was so entrenched", Lynch said.

The Golden Knights have earned rave reviews this season for their great starts, and relentless playing style. Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer and infielder Ryan Zimmerman were in attendance supporting the Capitals, while teammate and Vegas native Bryce Harper watched from a private box sporting a Jonathan Marchessault jersey.
