Washington's goalie stretched back and lunged to his right with his stick, thrusting the paddle into the exact 4-inch slot of air through which Tuch's shot was headed for the net.
"I try to disconnect myself from social media", Holtby said.
The NHL tweeted a GIF of the save with the simple caption: "ARE YOU KIDDING?!"
"Just being in the Stanley Cup finals is absolutely wonderful".
Instead, 8 million viewers watched some part of Game 1 between Vegas and Washington in Canada, which represented a 4% increase from last year's Game 1 between Pittsburgh and Nashville. TV can show you the systems and the replays and stuff like that that are great, but you can't capture the buzz, the excitement, the noise, the seats shaking because of people stamping their feet, the smell of the ice, the feel of the frozen ice coming up in your face. "He's a veteran player who has good hockey sense, and he's strong on the puck, and I think his game translates well in the playoffs". He had 37 saves for the night. He missed the Capitals' clinching Game 6, and then the first three games of their series against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Melania Trump hasn't appeared in public for 19 days
Trump wrote on Thursday, rehashing his baseless claim that former President Barack Obama implanted a "spy" in his campaign. Melania's last public appearance was May 10th, when three Americans were released by North Korea .
"It galvanized us as a group, I think it might be a turning point for us", Trotz said. "That's one of our strengths".
Holtby's performance guaranteed that this whiplash series is now tied heading back to Washington.
Holding a lead for all 20 minutes in the third period of a Stanley Cup Final is a good way to prove whether or not the Capitals are Stanley Cup worthy. "Maybe the save of a lifetime", Capitals forward Jay Beagle added.
"You need everyone at this time of year", said Tom Wilson, Kuznetsov's other usual winger.
Ukraine admits faking death of anti-Kremlin journalist
On Tuesday, Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko , an outspoken critic of Vladimir Putin , was reportedly shot and killed in Kiev. He left Russian Federation for Prague in February 2017 after receiving threats, and moved to Ukraine in August with his family.
"Five-on-three, you've got to count on a goal there", Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant told reporters postgame. He saw the odds on Las Vegas' expansion team winning it all - 200-to-1 at the time - and decided it was worth a $100 long shot as well. Many planned to simply soak up the atmosphere while watching the game on big screens outside the arena with thousands of new friends.
If there's a silver lining to be had regarding the Kuznetsov injury, it's that Lars Eller played much better in Game 2.
Beyond the "How good will he be?" questions, most fans want to know where he'll go. Trotz did not provide an update when asked about Kuznetsov's status at his press conference.
A verbose talker of clergyman quality, Trotz bows not to conventional deities but higher hockey powers. They've gotten so resilient. "We're going to push on'". Tuch, who was in ideal position in front of the open net, one-timed the puck.
Washington's excellent power play finally got a chance early in the second period, and Ovechkin scored a vintage goal with his powerful shot from a sharp angle. But Caps' fans will - throughout this series and very likely for years to come.
Alberto’s Last Gasp: Mudslides And Flooding In Appalachia
Even with that reprieve, flooding and mudslides shut down highways in the mountains of North Carolina, west of Charlotte. In Catawba County, emergency workers remain concerned about low-lying bridges being susceptible to flash flooding.
That the divisional playoff format, which pitted Boston against Toronto - the second and third best teams in the East - in the first round and then pitted Winnipeg and Nashville - the two best teams in the West - in the second round, would somehow make the final somewhere anticlimactic.
