Ice melting to slush in Las Vegas heat at Stanley Cup Final

Raiders owner Mark Davis has a real love affair with Las Vegas

Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant for months talked about his team's hard work, ability to battle and their devotion to playing a full "200 feet of hockey".

Those guys were Nicklas Backstrom, who moved up to the top line to skate with Ovechkin and Tom Wilson; Lars Eller, who was the Capitals' best skater in Game 2 after being challenged with anchoring the second line; as well as Jay Beagle and Chandler Stephenson, whose ice time increased and who played admirably. It seemed a sure goal because he was below the left circle and within point-blank range of goaltender Braden Holtby when he shot.

Tuch had a almost open net and a short-range shot, but Holtby swung around and stopped the puck with the blade of his stick.

As the new Raiders stadium continues to be built in the desert, Davis has been very present at the sporting events for Las Vegas' other professional team, the Golden Knights. Melrose said this year's Capitals' team may not be the most impressive Washington's fielded on paper, but it's come together more effectively. They'll have to play smarter in Game 3 and beyond, especially if the games remain as tight as the first few. Most of times it goes in.

Flanking Zidane at the press conference, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said the decision was "completely unexpected". Zidane, 46, joined Real Madrid in 2016 when he replaced Rafael Benitez before leading the team to their 11 Europeam trophy.

That would be one heck of a deal for a truly gifted shooter who dominated the KHL since the 2013-14 season after generating exactly a point-per-game (816 points in as many contests) during his outstanding National Hockey League career. The Capitals have Thursday off coach Barry Trotz said in a conference call Thursday Kuznetsov is day to day with an upper-body injury. "This group has had everything thrown at them and they just say, 'You know what?"

Kuznetsov has been fairly durable throughout his career, something that Trotz has seen first-hand in his four years behind Washington's bench. It's no excuse for us.

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. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 shots in taking the loss.

The poster not only wishes the Golden Knights good luck, but also ends with the famous Raiders tag "Just Win Baby".

Spain Defender Carvajal Likely to Miss World Cup
You go to a final to win it, and if you don't you feel like you failed. It's either the collarbone or the shoulder. I still hope it's not like this.

"Every time we have faced adversity, everyone steps up", Eller said. You can catch the game on Sportsnet 650.

Defenseman Brooks Orpik, who took a slash to the hand late in Game 2, did not participate in the optional practice, along with Alex Ovechkin, T.J. It was his first goal since February 26, 2016.

"I think everybody [is] excited in Washington", Ovechkin said. Western Conference and over is 5-1-3 in Capitals last 9 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and Capitals are 2-4 in their last 6 vs.

The Capitals are staying at the massive Mandarin Oriental, just down the street from T-Mobile Arena.
