WASHINGTON (AP) — Trailing the defending Stanley Antworten

WASHINGTON (AP) — Trailing the defending Stanley Cup champions by four in the second period Derek Ryan Jersey Womens , the Anaheim Ducks believed they had a chance.They were right.Pontus Aberg scored twice in the third, including the go-ahead goal with 5:05 remaining, and the Ducks stopped Washington’s seven-game win streak with a 6-5 victory over the Capitals on Sunday.“It’s hockey,” Aberg said. “Anything can happen.”The Ducks trailed 5-1 before rallying for their fourth consecutive victory. Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and two assists and Rickard Rakell had a goal and an assist in the finale of a five-game trip.“Believe me, there wasn’t anybody on that bench accepting where we were just because we’d had success previously in winning three in a row,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “That wasn’t even in their minds. They’re in the moment now, and it’s our job to keep them in that moment.”Anaheim became the first NHL team to overcome a four-goal deficit on the road to win in regulation since Colorado accomplished the feat against Florida on March 3, 1999. It was the second time in franchise history that the Ducks overcame a four-goal deficit to win in any fashion, joining a 5-4 overtime victory against Winnipeg on March 31, 2014.Evgeny Kuznetsov and Chandler Stephenson each had a goal and an assist for Washington, which chased John Gibson after scoring three times in the first part of the first period.“You really can’t fault him on it,” Carlyle said of Gibson. “But they had three goals on (11) shots John Carlson Jersey , and as a coach you’ve got a decision to make for the rest of your team, not him.”It was Anaheim’s highest scoring game of the season. Ryan Miller stopped 19 of 21 shots for the win.“I can’t remember anything like that honestly,” Miller said. “We had half the game to kind of get ourselves back, and we did it.”Aberg’s ninth goal of the season came moments after Anaheim killed off Washington’s fifth power play, and resulted from a turnover in the neutral zone.Kiefer Sherwood took the puck into the right corner of the Ducks’ attacking zone and tried to feed Getzlaf in front. With Caps goaltender Braden Holtby coming out of his crease, Getzlaf failed to make solid contact.Aberg was first to the loose puck, where he easily guided it into an open goal from a few feet out.“I just tried to be patient, not to rush it, because I didn’t want to miss that one,” he said.Down 5-1, Andrew Cogliano and Rakell scored even-strength goals 55 seconds apart in the second period. Aberg and Hampus Lindholm then converted on back-to-back power plays 1:45 apart to tie it at 5 midway through the third.Nicklas Backstrom, Tom Wilson and Nic Dowd also scored for the Capitals Lars Eller Jersey , and John Carlson had two assists. Holtby made 19 saves.“We got too passive I think,” Backstrom said. “When we were up 5-1 we should have been more aggressive than we were. It’s our fault.”NOTES: Miller picked up his 374th win, tying John Vanbiesbrouck for the lead among American-born goaltenders. … Washington’s opening goal was the 219th of Backstrom’s career, moving him ahead of Mike Ridley for fourth on the Capitals’ scoring list. … With his denial of Ondrej Kase with 7:57 left in the first period, Holtby became the second goaltender in Washington history to reach 10,000 saves. Olaf Kolzig had 18,013 for the Caps across 16 seasons. … Getzlaf now has points in six of his last eight games (four goals, six assists).UP NEXTDucks: Begin a four-game homestand on Wednesday against Chicago.Capitals: Start a three-game road trip with a Stanley Cup rematch Tuesday at Vegas. LAS VEGAS (AP) Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant for months talked about his team’s hard work, ability to battle and their devotion to playing a full ”200 feet of hockey.”In pockets of Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night, the Golden Knights were surprisingly outworked, outbattled and outhustled in losing 3-2 to the Washington Capitals. Game 3 is Saturday night in Washington and Vegas is going to need to up the energy level even further in a frantic series with scoring chances galore.Vegas outshot the Capitals 39-26, but the hustle stats in Game 2 went to Washington Madison Bowey Jersey , which handed the expansion club just its second home loss of the postseason. Washington had 18 blocked shots to eight for Vegas, helping goaltender Braden Holtby turn things around. He allowed five goals in the opener but was sublime in Game 2 as he made 37 saves – none bigger than stopping Alex Tuch with the paddle of his stick in a sprawling move with just 1:59 left.Washington also showed its mettle on the penalty kill, limiting the Golden Knights to a single goal in four attempts – including a 5-on-3 on the third period.”You’ve got to try and capitalize on those,” Vegas defenseman Luca Sbisa said. ”It’s just one of those games, even at the end, with Tuchy having that chance. Most of times it goes in. It’s just one of those games.”And while Washington outhit the Golden Knights, 46-39, it was some of Vegas’ bigger hits that ignited the Capitals in the second period.Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb hammered Washington’s first-line forward Evgeny Kuznetsov, sending him to the dressing room with a little more than five minutes left in the first period. He didn’t return.Washington coach Barry Trotz didn’t provide an update on his star afterward, but said it was the key moment in the game for his team.”It galvanized us as a group, I think it might be a turning point for us,” Trotz said.With Kuznetsov out Nicklas Backstrom Jersey , Trotz added Nicklas Backstrom to his top line with Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson. And 5:38 into the second period, with the game tied at 1-all and the Capitals on a power play, Ovechkin scored his first career Stanley Cup Final goal to give the Capitals the lead.”I think they got energy from that, I think they were pissed off, that’s how sports go,” Vegas forward Erik Haula said. ”You see one of your best players go down and you’re pissed off, that’s part of it. It’s no excuse for us. Bottom line is we were right in that game I think, it was right there for us to grab, we just came short.”Vegas unraveled and gave up more uncharacteristic chances in front of Marc-Andre Fleury, who has yet to lose consecutive games this postseason. The Golden Knights also had 12 turnovers compared to Washington’s four.”We shot ourselves in the foot a few times with some turnovers,” Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt said. ”At the end of the day you really have got to see where your game is at. If you look at it as a whole, we played really well for parts of the first period and we got caught up in the transition game in the second period – and that’s not the game we want to play.”Instead James Neal Jersey Womens , Washington fed off the momentum and dictated the tempo, and a little less than four minutes after Ovechkin scored, Brooks Orpik broke a 220-game goal drought with the eventual game winner. It was his first goal since Feb. 26, 2016.”I haven’t yelled that loud for someone to score a goal since Ovi scored one of his milestones,” Washington forward T.J. Oshie said.Though the Golden Knights outshot Washington 15-6 in the third period, the Capitals skated faster, competed better, worked harder and played smarter to steal home-ice advantage with their first-ever Final win. The Capitals return to Capital One Arena, where they have just a 4-5 record in the postseason. Vegas is 6-2 on the road in the playoffs.—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals
