Reaves: Wilson 'ran into a lion in the jungle'

Reaves: Wilson 'ran into a lion in the jungle'

"It's a tough building to play in, so we've got to be sharp for 60 minutes". The suspension was originally supposed to be 20 games but an arbitrator reduced the punishment in mid-November. Captain Alex Ovechkin echoed that: "Of course when you coming back, you're going to have memories, you're going to have smile on your face, but as soon as the game starts, it's a different day". The NHL's Department of Player Safety goes out of its way to explain why a hit is considered illegal when it hands down supplemental discipline to a player, but numerous Capitals said they are unclear about what the league wants when it comes to hits.

With Nate Schmidt back in the Vegas lineup after an early season suspension, the Knights' defense is at full strength now, too.

Even in an abbreviated season, Wilson has 14 points including 8 goals in 11 games so far. Bellemare screened Brayden Holtby and redirected Brayden McNabb's point shot into the net. 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. Cody Eakin wasted no time capitalizing on that momentum.

The Fortress has never been louder than it was following the Eakin go-ahead goal. He scored the goal on his former team, the same guys that beat Vegas for the Stanley Cup last season.

Washington's power play went an uncharacteristic 0/4 on the night while Vegas capitalized on their first and last power plays, finishing 2/6.

Vrana notched his second goal of the game and eighth of the campaign when he one-timed a pass from Evgeny Kuznetsov past a shielded Fleury, who had Vegas defender Nick Holden blocking his view.

Duke was told to report immediately to join the team in Las Vegas. Braden Holtby allowed six goals on 25 shots in the defeat. Washington slips to 15-9-3, but remains at the top of the Metropolitan Division.

Sunday's loss ended a seven-game winning streak, but the Caps believe that recent winning run can help them gat back in a groove quickly after Sunday's setback. Revenge, at home and playing well before the loss in the last game.
