The greatest comeback of the Washington Capitals continue to be road fighters in these NHL playoffs, and after holding off the Vegas Golden Knights in a panic-stricken third quarter of the game on Wednesday night in Las Vegas for a 3-2 victory, we have finally got ourselves a series in this 2018 Stanley Cup Final.

The series now heads to Washington D.C. equalized 1-1. Alexander Ovechkin notched his first Stanley Cup goal in his celebrated NHL career in the first half, giving the Capitals a lead they wouldn’t give up.

The first NHL’s Stanley Cup Final game in Washington, D.C., since way back in 1998 will be the most pivotal ice hockey showdown of the season to date for Vegas and Washington.

[agg-ad id=”834″ align=”center”][agg-ad id=”442″ align=”center”]With the best-of-seven-game series even at 1-1, the Golden Knights needs to bounce back on track after getting defeated by the Capitals in Game 2. Meanwhile, Washington have a massive chance to secure two straight wins at Capital One Arena to put the pressure squarely on their nemesis.

Offense has been the main matter of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final so far, with 10 goals coming in series opener (6-4 to Golden Knights) and another five scored in Game 2 (3-2 to Capitals).

In a couple of days leading up to third game of the series, both head coaches will attempt once again to make respective defensive changes in order to keep the contest close and allow the talented goalies on each end of the ice hockey rink to take over.
