LAS VEGAS (AP) – The Vegas Golden Knights are trying to take a two-games-to-none lead in the Stanley Cup finals as they host the Washington Capitals.
The Capitals carried a 3-2 lead into the third period. Alex Ovechkin (oh-VEHCH’-kihn) snapped a 1-1 tie with a power-play goal 5:38 into the second period, about four minutes before Brooks Orpik made it 3-1. But the Golden Knights cut their deficit on a power-play tally by Shea Theodore.
Vegas forward James Neal opened the scoring eight minutes into the game. Lars Eller scored the first goal for the Capitals.
The Knights won the opener by scoring the last three goals in a 6-4 victory. The outcome left the Capitals 0-5 in Stanley Cup finals games, including their four-game sweep by the Red Wings in 1998.
