HOW ABOUT A LITTLE FIRE, SCARECROW?

The second period treated the fans to plenty of hockey-as-arson at Capital One Arena.

The Captain Alex Ovechkin stuck the Capitals to a 2-0 lead, one-timing a vintage blast from his circular cubicle from Evgeny Kuznetsov.

But moments later, Vegas’ (and previously, Washington’s) Cody Eakin stuffed home a wraparound goal like a big juicy ravioli to bring the Golden Knights within one, 2-1 after forty minutes.

Third period ahead...
