NHL Stanley Cup Final 2018: Golden Knights vs. Capitals Odds, Props, Predictions

"I haven't yelled that loud for someone to score a goal since (Alex Ovechkin) scored one of his milestones", Oshie said.

The Knights have looked lost at times after grabbing a sloppy 6-4 victory in Game 1, falling 3-2 at home as Washington tied the series before dropping Saturday's 3-1 decision in Game 3.

"Man, you want those chances", Neal said. I'm the kind of guy who is watching basketball at 7 PM and then watching tennis at 1 A.M.

"I know Brooksie from Pittsburgh and he stays in tremendous shape", Engelland said. "It's pretty hard to not think about that".

John Carlson scored the only goal of the second period on a power play at 15:23, giving the Capitals a 4-0 lead.

The desperate Golden Knights outchanced the Capitals by a wide margin but fell apart after James Neal clanked a shot off the post instead of hitting a wide-open net early in the first period. "It's probably a different game after that", Neal said. Holtby was probably the game's least appreciated storyline. I just hit the post. Washington saw Vegas score twice in the third before Michal Kempny and Brett Connolly restored their four goal lead.

Fedorov, now the general manager of CSKA Moscow, his team from the late 1980s, wants to see Ovechkin and fellow Russian teammates Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov bring the Stanley Cup to Moscow.

Fleury came into the series as the best goaltender in the Stanley Cup playoffs, sporting a 12-3 record, .947 save percentage and 1.68 goals against average.

"When it mattered, we were able to get it done", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.

Though Nadal hit back to level for 2-2, the plucky Argentinian broke again with a thumping forehand to regain control. The victor will face either Juan Martin del Potro or Marin Cilic, who were locked at 5-5 in a first-set tiebreak.

"It's important to recognize moments when you can pressure, and we don't want to get away from that, where we can send two guys and try to force teams into mistakes", Niskanen said.

Oshie added two assists for a three-point effort, while Nicklas Backstrom also posted a three-point game with a trio of helpers. They haven't played anywhere near their best against Washington and are in danger of letting this magical expansion season slip away with Game 4 looming on Monday night.

The Washington Capitals got three goals in the first period of Game 4 and are spending much of the second period making sure the lead stands up against the Vegas Golden Knights.

"I've never been there", Kuznetsov said. Vegas has won four straight games after consecutive losses, and they are 8-3 total in their inaugural season in this situation.

"Right now, it's just automatic", Ovechkin said. "To be honest, I thought (the Neal chance) was in (from) my angle, and somehow it didn't go in". Then, they disappeared. Their chances in the series likely went with them.

Golden Knights fans with visions of a championship parade down Las Vegas' famous Strip, in between the giant castle, roller coasters and a faux Eiffel Tower, may still get their wish regardless if the Stanley Cup is a part of it - but any talk about formalized plans should be considered "premature", according to the team.

Vegas has scored three goals against the Washington Capitals in the past two games and fallen behind 2-1 in a series for the first time in the playoffs.

More to the point, both the Vegas Golden Knights and Washington Capitals could have looked around their respective locker rooms and could have told you that in their heart of hearts that they believed, believed they were ready to take that step, ready to be the team that did enough to do the previously unthinkable and win a Stanley Cup.

While the Capitals defended some of their best scoring threats, the Golden Knights only blocked eight shots in Game 2 and nine in Game 3.
