Jeez, all in the Caps' end so far. and at 17:31 left 1st, a breakaway... Holtby BIG save... next shift down, he gets the first one, but nobody covers the man sneaking in all alone... easy open net on the rebound.

1-0 VGK

Holtby 2 more HUGE saves on guys wide open, he's getting absolutely no help... even the VGK broadcasters are lauding him for only being 1 down... it's been all Knights long the first 6:00...

and they score again on a 3 on 2 breakout, he gets a piece of it with the top of his left arm, but just couldn't get it up in time.

2-0 Knights very early.

Caps get a 2 on 1, but Oshie is stoned by Fleury... now the Caps on their 2nd PP (I missed the first one)...

nothing on it but a couple good chances, Fleury is more than up to the task...

Knights get another odd man rush, and Marchessault gets... crossbar...

3:17 left 2nd, Caps have too many on the ice... killed, and easily- I think the Caps are trying to get back in this, and good on Holtby for staying in and making them play in front of him...

a play near the end at :35, there's a penalty, but who knows on who- it's Ovechkin- behind the play, Kuz skates off doubled over, apparently injured...

3-0 Knights end 2nd, with 1:25 of PP coming to them.

Trying to claw their way back into this, but need this kill and then an early goal.

2nd was a better period. We shall see...

Good kill... at 17:50, the Caps go on the PP, and had chances during the delay...

first :56 good control, waaaay too much passing... VGK good the next :45... killed... 15:23 another chance, but Fleury... 14:20 VGK offside...

8:07 left reg, and it looks like this one is over... 7:12... 5:59 and out of play...

4:11... 3:00 (no stoppages, just back and forth)... 2:30... to 1:40, all VGK and Holtby solid... Backstrom misses an open net, :45.1 Caps to the PP again... Ovechkin misse a good chance...

3-0 Knights, final.
