The Stanley Cup Final makes it way back to Washington D.C. The Washington Capitals will host the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 3.
The Golden Knights had won the first three games played between the two teams this season, but in Game 2 of the series the Capitals came out ahead.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Vegas Golden Knights are the feel good story of these playoffs, but now they have to treat this game as a must win game.
They don’t want to fall behind in this series and they really need to try and steal back home ice as soon as possible with Game 3 being ideal.
After good goaltending all the playoffs, the defense has struggled in this series, even in Game 1 whne they won, and they need to figure that out quickly.
The Washington Capitals have looked dead and out a few times this playoffs, but unlike years past, they were able to fight through the adversity to have success.
They were down 3-2 in the series against the Tampa Bay Lightning but were able to win the last two games.The defense was a problem earlier in the series, but in the last two games they outscored the Lightning by a final score of 7-0 to come out ahead in the series.
In Game 2 of this series, they could have folded. They were down 1-0 in the series, and the Capitals fell behind in the Game 1-0.
They didn’t give up though and they fought and clawed all the way to grab a lead. They held on late and did enough to steal home ice advantage.
To make that home ice advantage worth it though, they need to get the offense going early in this game and they need to win both of these games.
