Capitals winger Tom Wilson leaves game after big hit

Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals visit the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday, returning to the arena where they won the franchise's first Stanley Cup in June. Certain moments stick out to Connolly from the seconds and minutes after Washington's bench emptied in unbridled joy, from how he and forward T.J. Oshie just screamed in each other's faces to when his family came down from the stands to join him, his grandfather touching the Cup for the first time. "We have a unique group of guys on our team". He finished the game with seven hits, pushing his season total to 85 hits. "It's where a lot of us achieved our dreams for the first time, so plenty of good feelings in that sense". "I don't feel like anyone knows what's going on anymore".

"Lots of really amusing things (happened)", Niskanen said. "It's pretty cool. A pretty good feeling, and I'd like to replicate that again someday".

The sting of Sunday's loss could take some time to fade.

Reaves was assessed a five-minute major for interference and handed a game misconduct on top of it. "It probably happens to a team every year - some sort of a letdown". The Knights are not the same team as then due to their confidence with the recent five-game winning streak. The seriousness of the injury isn't yet known but regardless of how you feel about Wilson, no one should actually want to see a player get hurt. Washington is 4-1 in its last five Tuesday games.

"I think we all seen the hit and video, it's a clean hit, there's nothing wrong with the hit". A bit of "Vegas Hangover", maybe? The first Golden Knight is finally a Golden Knight. The Capitals have scored three or more goals in nine straight and 20 of 27 games this season, including 10 games with five or more goals. Braden Holtby allowed six goals on 25 shots in the defeat. The Fortress has never been louder than it was following the Eakin go-ahead goal.

This is the first trailer for The Outer Worlds , a brand-new first-person RPG from Obsidian and Private Division . The game is not an open-world RPG, but rather a series of interconnected, smaller worlds and locations.

Nate Schmidt scored twice in the final two minutes to lift the Vegas Golden Knights over the Washington Capitals 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Washington coach Todd Reirden said Wilson would be re-evaluated Wednesday. Wilson was ejected from the game, but somehow did not receive supplemental discipline or even get a hearing with the Department of Player Safety.

The Blackhawks look to halt a 2-game losing-streak. In starts immediately following games in which he has yielded four or more goals in his career, Holtby owns a 43-15-11 record. Teams are 1-8-2 in their next game after playing in Las Vegas.

The Golden Knights announced the move today, making roster space by assigning forward Daniel Carr to the AHL.
