Second period thread.

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Vegas Golden Knights at Washington Capitals Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

Plenty of fun in the first twenty minutes of Game 3!

First of all, much to the relief of Capitals fans, center Evgeny Kuznetsov was IN the starting line-up.

But the real wild moment happened six minutes into the frame. An apparent Washington goal, bringing the crowd to its feet, was waved off for goaltender interference. Devante Smith-Pelly’s formidable derriere found Marc-Andre Fleury’s supple noggin, and DSP’s asset plum near knocked the goalie into la semaine prochaine.

The Capitals managed to kill off the ensuing minor penalty, and this one remains 0-0 after one.

Second period ahead...
