In Game 3 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals the Capitals out-shot, out-hit, and eventually out-scored the Vegas Golden Knights to take a 2-1 series lead. Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov — who was a game-time decision due to injury — scored in the second period for Washington. Tomas Nosek got Vegas on the board early in the third period after a terrible giveaway by Braden Holtby, but the Caps got their insurance goal 10 minutes later when Devante Smith-Pelly beat Marc-Andre Fleury glove side after Jay Beagle worked his tail off to force a Vegas turnover in the defensive zone.
