      Major League Baseball is confident the Oakland Athletics and
      Tampa Bay Rays are moving closer to getting plans in place for new ballparks.
      Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has said the sport will consider expansion Graham Gano Jersey , but only after the A’s and Rays get new stadiums.
      The A’s hoped to build in downtown Oakland near Lake Merritt on land owned by Laney College, but the Peralta Community College District’s board of trustees killed the project in December. The team is now considering building adjacent to its current home at the Oakland Coliseum or on the waterfront at the Howard Terminal, which is more distant to mass transit.
      ”I remain committed to the Oakland market, and it’s not out of some conceptual fealty to the notion of franchise stability,” Manfred said Tuesday at a meeting of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. ”It is because I believe that there is not another market in the United States that has the upside potential that Oakland has, and I think we would regret leaving Oakland.”
      Manfred called the Laney College plans ”an unfortunate misstep.”
      ”There is no human endeavor where you get it right every single time,” he said. ”I think Howard Terminal is viable. I think the Coliseum site is viable. And we will be continuing to encourage the A’s to get to a decision point sooner rather than later on where they want to be so that you can get to the next step, which is determining whether you have economic viability in terms of financing and the like.”
      The Rays revealed plans last week for a domed ballpark in the Ybor City area of Tampa Teez Tabor Jersey , which would involve a move across the bay from their Tropicana Field home in St. Petersburg. The 30,842-seat stadium would be the smallest in the major leagues and is estimated to cost $892 million. Its roof would be translucent.
      ”I thought the design was innovative and well-suited to the Tampa Bay market,” Manfred said. ”I think it was economically efficient.”
      Manfred said the next step is a financing plan
      ”Stadiums are municipal assets,” he said. ”They are indicative of a … regions’ status kind of as a major league city, and participation either in terms of businesses or governmental entities in the financing of the stadium I continue to believe is completely appropriate.”
      He added ”if you are going to have private financing, the other piece that has to be present is support for the club in terms of attendance, sponsorship and all those great things that put the owner in a position to repay the debt that they inevitably would have to incur to get the stadium constructed.”

      The Latest on Game 1 of the Stanley Cup between the Washington Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights (all times local):
      8:40 p.m.
      The Washington Capitals have a high-flying, hard-hitting team and history working against them.
      Tomas Nosek scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and added an empty-net goal in the closing seconds to help the Vegas Golden Knights beat Washington 6-4 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
      Since the final went to a best-of-seven format in 1939 Alex Erickson Jersey , the winner of Game 1 has gone on to hoist the Cup the last six years and 61 of the last 78 times.
      Boston is the last team to bounce back from losing Game 1 to win an NHL title.
      The Bruins, in fact, opened the 2011 Final with two losses against the Vancouver Canucks before rallying and winning in seven games.

      8:10 p.m.
      The Vegas Golden Knights took another step in their unlikely quest to win the Stanley Cup, beating the Washington Capitals 6-4 in a Game 1 thriller.
      Fourth-line forward Tomas Nosek scored a go-ahead goal midway through the third period and had an empty-net goal with 2.7 seconds left.
      Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves for the Golden Knights. Braden Holtby made 28 saves for the Capitals, who are 0-5 in franchise history in the Stanley Cup Final.
      Vegas will host Game 2 on Wednesday night.
      Shortly before the empty-net goal, Lars Eller of the Capitals had the puck go off the end of his stick blade with a wide-open net in front of him and a chance to tie the game.

      7:55 p.m.
      The Vegas Golden Knights are showing how deep and talented they are in the Stanley Cup Final.
      Tomas Nosek scored a go-ahead goal midway through the third period to give the Vegas Golden Knights a 5-4 lead over the Washington Capitals in a Game 1 thriller.
      Nosek’s one-timer from the right side was set up by Shea Theodore’s cross-ice pass. Ryan Reaves, the third player on Vegas’ fourth line, had tied the game early in the third.

      7:50 p.m.
      Jonathan Marchessault Jay Prosch Jersey , Vegas’ leading scorer in the playoffs, walked off the ice and toward the Golden Knights’ dressing room after taking an open-ice check.
      Washington’s Tom Wilson landed a blind-sided hit on Marchessault well after he got rid of the puck near center ice.
      Wilson was later called for interference against Marchessault after the officials gathered to discuss what happened. David Perron, who had come off Vegas’ bench, was penalized for cross-checking Alex Ovechkin during the same stoppage of play 5:53 into the third period.
      Marchessault later returned to the ice.

      7:35 p.m.
      Vegas and Washington are putting on a show in the Stanley Cup Final opener.
      Tom Wilson put the Capitals ahead early in the third period and Ryan Reaves evened the score at 4-all for the Golden Knights just 1:31 later, setting up a fantastic finish in Game 1.
      Wilson finished off a sequence in which he and his teammates, including Alex Ovechkin, finally found some time and space with the puck against the speedy, swarming Golden Knights.
      That quieted the Vegas crowd Kyle Williams Jersey , but not for long. Reaves scored the game-tying goal by lifting a loose puck over Braden Holtby.

      7:10 p.m.
      It’s all tied up after the first two periods in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
      The Vegas Golden Knights killed their first penalty with a little help from the post behind Marc-Andre Fleury as John Carlson drew iron on a shot late in the second period. Moments later, Fleury gave the post to his right a friendly tap with his right glove to give thanks after his team was penalized for having too many men on the ice.
      The Golden Knights and Capitals head into the third period tied 3-3 after an entertaining opening to a series between two teams seeking their first NHL championship.
      Fleury had stopped 15 shots through two periods and Braden Holtby had stopped 22 for the Capitals.

      6:45 p.m.
      One of the hottest shows on the Strip isn’t showing signs of slowing down.
      Reilly Smith put the Vegas Golden Knights ahead early in the second period and John Carlson pulled the Washington Capitals into a 3-3 tie as Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final reached the halfway point.
      Just like the opening period, Vegas was able to generate more offense. The Golden Knights were outshooting the Capitals 10-5 midway through the second and 21-15 overall.
      Both teams had some trouble keeping the puck settled at times. Crews were working on the ice during stoppages in play, adding water and shoveling shavings away.

      6:10 p.m.
      The Vegas Golden Knights and Washington Capitals are tied 2-2 after a wild first period in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
      Brett Connolly and Nicklas Backstrom scored 42 seconds apart to put the Capitals ahead and William Karlsson answered with a goal late in the period.
      Both teams took advantage of having players with soft hands, allowing them to redirect rolling and wobbling pucks into the net.
      Washington’s Braden Holtby withstood a flurry of shots early in the period and finished the opening 20 minutes with nine saves. Marc-Andre Fleury didn’t have to stop a shot for more than five minutes before Washington woke up.
      Colin Miller fired up the home crowd by scoring 7:15 into the game on a power play, slapping a shot past Holtby, who appeared to be screened. Washington roared back with two goals.

      5:40 p.m.
      The Vegas Golden Knights have jumped out to a 1-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the opening game of the Stanley Cup Final against Washington.
