Washington Capitals return to Vegas, sight of Stanley Cup triumph

'Who knows anymore?' Capitals unclear on what NHL considers...

Reaves and Washington's oft-suspended Tom Wilson renewed their fierce rivalry, with several brutal hits that ignited the crowd, including a vicious shoulder-to-shoulder connection that ended Wilson's night in the second period. Todd Reirden said after the game he would be reevaluated on Wednesday. It's a pretty special feeling for us as individuals, our team, our organization, everything. Players rarely left their hotel rooms during the Stanley Cup finals, but on Monday, some took a stroll around the Strip, exploring a place that's already meant so much to them. After the game, Reaves argued that he should not have been ejected for the hit. "Seeing them achieve that for the first time and be very deserving of it, and then when it goes down along the line, you realize how long you've been here and the guys that are passing it to me and the guys I'm passing it to".

Reaves was given a 5 minute major for interference and a game misconduct for the play. The Knights are not the same team as then due to their confidence with the recent five-game winning streak. "I thought it was shoulder to shoulder and I didn't think it was that late", he said.

But the Golden Knights dominated down the stretch. A bit of "Vegas Hangover", maybe? Vegas had the edge in shots on goal (28 to 26) and also won the faceoff battle (59% success rate). But Vegas is actually getting more production from its second unit, a newly cobbled threesome of Max Pacioretty, Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch. "Over 82 games, you've got to find some things to get yourself up for, and that was one of them", he said. The Fortress has never been louder than it was following the Eakin go-ahead goal.

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.

Donald Trump blames Mueller probe, 'Presidential Harassment' for approval rating
In a final tweet , Trump said former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is compiling a report to counter Mueller's report. Cohen pleaded guilty to financial crimes in a NY court in August, and last week to lying to Congress in a Mueller case.

Back at even strength, Vegas tied the game on a Pierre-Edouard Bellemare tip out front. "It looked like he took a peek, and if he sees me I know he's going to try to lay me out, and I'm not going to let that happen". They struggle in power play percentage (#31), power play goals (#31) and goals against per game (#30).

The severity of Wilson's injury is unclear.

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. He won his last five starts of the month, but lost a 2-1 shaving to the Oilers in Edmonton on Saturday in his first start of this month.
