The Stanley Cup Final continues on Wednesday night at T-Mobile Arena. The Washington Capitals make the trip to Vegas to take on the Golden Knights.
These teams have faced off three times so far this year with the Golden Knights winning each of the games. In Game 1 one of the Stanley Cup Final they came out ahead 6-4.
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.
They have their backs against the wall in this series already, and the last thing they want to do is fall behind 2-0.
They need to play better in the defensive zone to start. If the defense plays better, they will have a chance in this game.
Vegas Golden Knights
On the other side of this matchup is the Vegas Golden Knights, who a year ago at this time didn’t even have a player on their roster.
They have cruised through the postseason to this game. After losing the first game against the Winnipeg Jets they realed off four straight wins to reach this point.
For the Golden Knights they play in a lot of close games, but they seem to know how to have success late in games to come out ahead.
That was the case again in Game 1 playing a close game all night, and although they won by two goals the one was an empty net goal with two second left.
The surprising thing in Game 1 was how bad their defense played, and even though the offense made up for it they need to go back and watch some film and improve on that.
This game will probably be close again, so the defense is going to need to be good, if they want to come out ahead in this game late.
