NHL Morning Skate for Thursday, May 31, 2018: Cup Series tied 1-1 as Capitals win on road again and nears a record

PUBLICATION WRITTEN BY NHL PUBLIC RELATIONS; COURTESY NHLmedia.com

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WEDNESDAY’S RESULT

Braden Holtby made 37 saves, including a sensational stop in the final minutes of regulation, to help the Capitals earn their first-ever win in the Stanley Cup Final and even their series against the Golden Knights at 1-1.

 

Teams winning Game 2 have gone on to hoist the Stanley Cup 74.4% of the time since the Final went to the best-of-seven format in 1939 (58-of-78 series), but only five times in the past nine years.

CAPITALS NEAR NHL RECORD WITH ANOTHER ROAD WIN

The Capitals improved to 9-3 as visitors during the postseason, outscoring opponents 43-28. Only four teams in NHL history have earned more road wins in a single playoff year:

* Washington has gone 20 games (regular season and playoffs) without consecutive losses as visitors, last doing so Feb. 22 – March 8 (0-4-0).

 

* The Capitals handed the Golden Knights their second loss on home ice this postseason (7-2) and first in regulation at T-Mobile Arena since March 28 vs. ARI (3-2 L).

 

* ICYMI: Nearly 14,500 fans packed Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., to watch Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

 

ORPIK ENDS DROUGHT WITH WINNING GOAL

Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik snapped a 220-game goal drought (regular season and playoffs) – the longest active such streak in the NHL – with his tally midway through the second period. Orpik, the only Washington player with Stanley Cup Final experience entering the series, went 181 regular-season and 39 playoff games since scoring his last goal (Feb. 26, 2016 vs. MIN).

 

Orpik recorded his third game-winning goal in 1,128 career NHL appearances (982 in the regular season, 146 in the playoffs). His two other such tallies: May 11, 2013 at NYI (w/ PIT) and Feb. 20, 2016 vs. NJD.

 

ELLER STEPS UP IN KUZNETSOV’S ABSENCE

Washington forward Lars Eller registered 1-2—3 after teammate Evgeny Kuznetsov, the League’s top postseason scorer (11-14—25 in 21 GP), left the game due to injury. It marked Eller’s third career three-point performance in the playoffs (71 GP), all in Game 2s this year (also SR vs. PIT: 0-3—3 and CF at TBL: 1-2—3).

 

Eller also stepped up in place of Nicklas Backstrom earlier this postseason, collecting 2-3—5 during his four-game absence May 7-15. He has 6-11—17 in 21 playoff contests this year, nearly matching his 50-game total prior to 2018 (6-17—23).

 

OVECHKIN MOVES WITHIN ONE GOAL OF FRANCHISE RECORD

Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 13th goal of the playoffs (13-11—24 in 21 GP), one shy of the single-year franchise record established by John Druce in 1990 (14-3—17 in 15 GP).

 

Ovechkin, who ranks second in the League in points this postseason, paces all players with 9-8—17 on the road (12 GP), the most by anyone since 2016 (Brent Burns: 6-11—17 in 12 GP).

 

WASHINGTON VICTORY GUARANTEES LACK OF SWEEP

With Washington’s victory, there will not be a sweep in the Stanley Cup Final for a record 19th consecutive season (since 1998 DET: 4-0 W vs. WSH). The longest prior such streak (since the Stanley Cup Final went to the best-of-seven format in 1939) was seven straight series, from 1953-59 and 1961-67.

 

TEAMS COMBINE FOR 15 GOALS IN OPENING TWO GAMES

The Golden Knights (8) and Capitals (7) totaled 15 goals in Games 1 and 2, the most combined goals in the opening two contests of the Stanley Cup Final since 1982 (21 – NYI: 12, VAN: 9).

 

GOLDEN KNIGHTS AGAIN SCORE EARLY

The Golden Knights scored the opening goal of the game – all in the first period – for the ninth time in as many contests at T-Mobile Arena this postseason. Six of those have been recorded in the opening 8 minutes of the game:

 

First Round

Game 1 vs. LAK: 3:23 of 1st (Shea Theodore)

Game 2 vs. LAK: 14:47 of 1st (Alex Tuch)

 

Second Round

Game 1 vs. SJS: 4:31 of 1st (Cody Eakin)

Game 2 vs. SJS: 17:59 of 1st (William Karlsson)

Game 5 vs. SJS: 19:57 of 1st (James Neal)

 

Conference Finals

Game 3 vs. WPG: 0:35 of 1st (Jonathan Marchessault)

Game 4 vs. WPG: 2:25 of 1st (William Karlsson)

Golden Bear Club and Pavilion Badges reach sellout status

 

 

 

Dublin, Ohio – At 6:25 p.m. EDT Tournament officials announced the final playing field for the 2018 Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide. The contingent of 120 players is led by World No. 1 Justin Thomas, 2017 Memorial Tournament winner Jason Dufner and five-time winner and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods.

 

The 2018 Memorial Tournament begins Monday, May 28 at Muirfield Village Golf Club. This is the 43rd edition of the prestigious invitational Jack Nicklaus started in 1976.

 

In addition to Thomas, the list of top-10 players in the world rankings includes No. 2 Dustin Johnson, No. 3 Jordan Spieth, No. 5 Justin Rose (2010 Memorial winner), No. 6 Rickie Fowler, No. 7 Jason Day, No. 8 Rory McIlroy and No. 9 Hideki Matsuyama (2014 Memorial winner). The 2018 field also boasts the top 5 in the FedExCup standings: Thomas, No. 2 Day, No. 3 Phil Mickelson, No. 4 Patton Kizzire and No. 5 Patrick Reed, the reigning Masters champion.

 

One of the strongest fields of the year has created even higher interest in this year’s Tournament, leading to a sellout of both Golden Bear Club and Pavilion tickets.

 

“We’re looking forward to a special week,” said Tournament Founder and Host Jack Nicklaus. “The Memorial Tournament has virtually every great player in the game today in this year’s field. Plus, we’re looking forward to hosting 13 of our past winners, including defending winner Jason Dufner. And we are delighted to welcome back five-time winner Tiger Woods and three-time winner Kenny Perry.”

 

“We are gratified to see so many of the game’s top players coming to Muirfield Village Golf Club and supporting not only a special Tournament but also our charitable endeavors,” said Dan Sullivan, executive director of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide. “This year’s field, one of our best, is a testament to the vision and commitment to excellence of our Tournament Founder and Host Jack Nicklaus, whose mission has been to put on the best golf event in the world. In addition to many of the top players in the world, a field that includes the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Masters champion Patrick Reed and major winners like Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, Henrik Stenson and Zach Johnson is one that we’re proud to have, and, furthermore, pleased to host on behalf of our patrons.”

 

The list of past Memorial winners includes not only Dufner, Woods, Perry, Rose and Matsuyama, but also K.J. Choi, Ernie Els, Jim Furyk (who is serving as U.S. Ryder Cup captain this fall in Paris), Matt Kuchar, David Lingmerth, William McGirt, Carl Pettersson and Vijay Singh.

LEGENDS LUNCHEON INTERVIEW WITH JACK NICKLAUS ON GOLF, HALE IRWIN, MEMORIAL AND CHARITY

Jack Nicklaus 2018 Legends Luncheon Interview 5 1 2018

 

Jack Nicklaus 2018 Legends Luncheon (megasportsnews.com)

Jack Nicklaus continues to manage the Memorial Tournament, which he founded in his home state of Ohio. The event is played at Muirfield Village, a course that he co-designed with Desmond Muirhead and opened in 1974. The course was officially dedicated on Memorial Day, May 27, 1974, with an exhibition match between Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf.

The Memorial Tournament continues the PGA Tour‘s philanthropic focus through its relationships with Central Ohio charities. The most significant of which is its relationship with Nationwide Children’s Hospital since 1976. Contributions generated through the support of over 2,600 volunteers are distributed each year to the Hospital’s unrestricted giving fund. This fund assists in ensuring Central Ohio continues to have one of the best children’s hospitals in the United States. The Memorial Tournament has raised more than $5.7 million to support the programs and services at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in those 30-plus years. In 2005 the Memorial made a pledge that will elevate its level of giving to more than $11 million in the coming years. Unique and successful relationships also exist with Fore Hope, James Cancer Hospital, Wolfe Associates, The First Tee, Central Ohio Junior Golf Association, Shriners, Lions Club and many more.

Nicklaus and wife Barbara serve as honorary chairman and active chairwoman of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation in North Palm Beach, Florida which provides valuable programs and services to more than 4,000 hospitalized children and their families, free of charge, through Child Life programs, the Pediatric Oncology Support Team, and the Safe Kids program. The Nicklauses established “The Jake”, a pro-am golf tournament played annually at The Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Florida in honor of their 17-month-old grandson who drowned in a hot tub in 2005. It has become the foundation’s chief fundraiser. Players like Robert AllenbyRaymond FloydTom WatsonIan Baker-FinchErnie ElsJay HaasJohnny Miller, and Gary Player have participated. No one accepts a fee. Everything goes to the foundation, more than $3 million over the past three years.
