After dropping two straight home games in overtime, the Capitals are in OH to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in a Game 3 that can fairly be described as "do or die".

The Wild will try to tie the best-of-seven series 2-2 in Game 4 at home Tuesday night.

LOS ANGELES - James Neal scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:37 to play, and the Vegas Golden Knights rallied from a third-period deficit to move to the brink of the expansion franchise's first playoff series victory with a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night.

Then, Panarin sailed a pass to center Pierre Luc-Dubois on the right side of the ice, and he rifled a wrist shot out of the reach of Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and into the back of the next for the equalizer with 11:18 to play in the second period.

Game 4 is Thursday night back in Columbus, with Game 5 set for Washington on Saturday.

Matt Dumba and Marcus Foligno bookended the furious middle frame with goals for the Wild, who won a postseason home game for only the second time in their last nine contests. The Blue Jackets got a break two minutes later when a goal by the Capitals' Brett Connolly was waved off after a video replay showed he was offside bringing the puck down the ice.

Later in the period, with Columbus' Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Murray both in the penalty box for slashing, Carlson connected with 5:17 left on a one-timer 28 seconds into the 5-on-3. And while expectations should be lower this year since they didn't win the Presidents' Trophy, they were at least supposed to get past the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round.

Devan Dubnyk stopped 26 shots for the Wild, who played without star left wing Zach Parise because of a broken sternum suffered in Game 3. Vrana was a healthy scratch for that game.

Although the Capitals tallied the go-ahead goal later in the second period, the Blue Jackets quickly evened things up after the intermission. Panarin, who had an assist on Atkinson's goal, has eight straight multi-point games.
