NHL Teams Suffering "Vegas Hangover" After Playing Golden Knights at the Fortress

The former Capitals player added an empty-netter moments later.

The Vegas Flu was a theory that teams who stayed the night in Las Vegas before playing the Golden Knights would go on to lose - and often look lackluster in doing so. "That's the reason you play hockey, is games like that". They knew Reaves wanted a piece of Wilson and the two were going at one another all night.

The game was tied at 1-1 just a few minutes into the bridge frame when the Capitals had the puck in transition.

"Those are the types of things you want to be a part of". "Obviously they play a quick game and the crowd gets them into it". Pierre-Edouard Bellemare lit the lamp for the fourth time this season 2:33 into the third period for the Golden Knights. Nicklas Backstrom, Chandler Stephenson, Tom Wilson, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nic Dowd scored the goals for Washington.

Thus far in 2018-19, the Karlsson line has accumulated 23 goals while all three of its members are skating over 19 minutes a night.

Wilson took Reaves down in the first period with a big hit of his own.

The Anaheim Ducks scored five unanswered goals in the last 26 minutes of the game to beat Washington 6-5 on Sunday, dealing the Capitals their first loss since November 14.

"That was a man's game out there". He finished the game with seven hits, pushing his season total to 85 hits. "I think this is a cool place to win the Cup in".

"I think we all seen the hit and video, it's a clean hit, there's nothing wrong with the hit", he said. Of all the memories from the team's raucous Stanley Cup celebrations, the champagne- and beer-soaked start in the dressing room right after Washington first got its hands on the trophy with a Game 5 win remains the most meaningful for players.

"They play a fast game, especially in this building", says Reirden of the Knights. Then on the short trip to T-Mobile Arena on Monday morning, coach Todd Reirden tried to remember his exact steps from the last time he was here, just in case there was some good luck left in that path.

"Ryan Reaves did to Tom Wilson what many #Penguins fans were hoping for".

Both hits were late, they did not contact the head and came against unsuspecting players. "That's disappointing. You can put two and two together but he targeted him the entire game".

The win saw the Golden Knights improve their record to 15-13-1 and move up to 31 points, joint-third in the Pacific Division alongside the San Jose Sharks.
