  • How the Caps Can Theatrically One-Up Vegas

Vegas needs Fleury to be better and his teammates to improve in front of him in Game 5 on Thursday night or they will watch their opponent celebrate a championship their home ice.

And still it wasn't enough as the Capitals grabbed a 2-1 series lead ahead of Game 4 at Capital One Arena on Monday night.

Neal scored 5:43 into the third period.

Jones on the difference between the two teams in the first period: "The difference is confidence and lacking confidence". Washington goalie Braden Holtby said after the game he thought it was in. Through three games he has one unsafe shot attempt at 5-on-5, which is the same number as Capitals checking-line centre Jay Beagle. Campbell River's Brett Connolly scored one goal in the first game of the final, but has since been unable to find the scoresheet for the Capitals.

"When you add in the aggressiveness of the Capitals' play as opposed to waiting for things to happen, there lies a bit of the rub that the Golden Knights have had with other teams".

The Capitals have not trailed at any point since their Game 1 loss. This marks the 12th consecutive year that Emrick, Olczyk and McGuire have combined to call the Stanley Cup Final for NBC Sports.

The Golden Knights prefer to generate speed as they exit their own zone, so Washington has been sticking their right wing on Vegas' blue line to prevent that from happening so easily. He knows all about the plastic rats in Florida, the octopi in Detroit and the catfish in Nashville.

Merritt bought a crab from a local restaurant before Game 3 and brought it into the arena with hope.

The Knights put the pressure on the Capitals early in Game 4 and probably deserved a better fate.

Liverpool Still Expect To Seal £53m Deal Despite Lyon Denial
Memphis Depay (19 goals ) was the only Lyon player to outscore Fekir last season, leading the Reds to target him. Liverpool fans can be encouraged somewhat, however, by the fact that Lyon have done exactly this before.

While ecstatic with the victory that inched them ever closer to their first Stanley Cup, the Capitals were also realistic about a first period that could have played out much differently. "A lot of guys make mistakes in a hockey game ⅛and⅜ they don't end up in the back of the net". He got a great ovation from the crowd when lifted his Broncos jersey to reveal a Capitals sweater.

The Washington Capitals have taken a 3-0 lead into the first intermission of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights. This time, the Knights trail the Caps 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.

Connolly added another power-play goal for Washington with 69 seconds remaining to round out the scoring for Washington, which now sits just one win away from the Cup after all the playoff heartbreak that dots its history.

Said Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury: "The puck just did not want to come in for us".

The shot pinged off the far post.

"It's the Stanley Cup final", Ovechkin said.

The Knights will be thankful they are headed back to Vegas.

James Neal had the puck on his stick and was staring at an open net.

If they don't, it could be a quicker series than most predicted. In four games against Washington, Fleury has allowed 16 goals on 103 shots, a pedestrian.845 save percentage that speaks as much to Vegas crashing back down to earth as a team. Perron has not scored a goal in 14 playoff games.

Four women and one man were admitted in critical condition to Brockville General Hospital, spokeswoman Abby McIntyre told Reuters. Joshua McNamara, a spokesman for Ontario's air ambulance service, said that it flew three people farther west to Kingston.

One of the strengths of this Washington team has been the players' ability to move past the losing postseason culture. This planning will be led by the Golden Knights.

The fans waved white glow sticks and waved towels before the national anthem.

"I did have it removed from the agenda", Sisolak told the Las Vegas Sun.

Fall Out Boy is playing the pregame concert at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, two days after Sting and Shaggy.

"It is not ideal, but it is the Stanley Cup finals and everyone wants to win", Backstrom said.

Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant, who is known for his calm demeanor, was a bit combative Sunday in defending Theodore to reporters.

Tatar has not played since Game 3 of the Western Conference final against Winnipeg. He is two points behind the lead in playoff scoring (held by Kuznetsov) and is tied for the lead in goals.

Tatar did score the most goals against the Capitals this season: four in two games with the Red Wings, including an overtime victor.
