Game 1: The Caps whiffed on the open net game tying shot.

Game 2: Holtby STEALS the game tying shot. 

This series is great!

When Brooks Orpik is scoring your GWG, you’re doing something right. 

 

Caps look really good 5 on 5. If they can keep their wits about them, they’ve got a shot. They have done what no other team has done this postseason - make Fleury look human. They got a shot.

Also, the Caps have finally won a Stanley Cup Final game! First one in franchise history. Big night.

This is gonna be a freaking fight. That save was nasty. Caps stole one at the fortress. Now we gotta take one in Washington. This is fun.

Can't win four without winning one first.

After that opening goal from Vegas, I thought they'd get crushed and that was it.

 

But they came back and now the series is a coin flip. Washington takes it in 7.

I can say something that I have not been able to say since I became a Caps fan in 2011. 

 

The Caps have made me proud in this postseason. 

 

They've shown fight, character, and mental strength that I have not seen. And now they’ve done something not previously done in franchise history. Win a SCF game. Now finish the job boys.

This is an unreal feeling seeing the Caps win their first game in the SCF, I was so nervous the whole 3rd period I could feel myself shaking from the nerves

This series has been something incredible. Only two games in and I'm already calling this to be one of the most exciting Finals in recent memory.

The Holtby save has the potential to go down in history with the Bobby Orr "Flying Goal" and Brett Hull's Goal in the crease as some of the most memorable moments in Stanley Cup history.

 

If Washington wins the Cup, everyone's going to pinpoint this save as the series' "turning point".

Not to take anything away from that ludicrous save by Holtby, but I think Anderson's save was a lot more ridiculous.

This is what has impressed me the most when looking at this series. For a team who let  Tampa Bay come back in the series at home, Washington has really set the pace of play and make Vegas look like the team many of us thought they'd be at the onset of the season. Though I am pulling for Sharks East, I'm going to be secretly jealous if they break their drought before my team. What can I say, I'm a greedy jerk.
