Capitals flying high, up 2-1 on Knights in Stanley Cup play

  • Golden Knights right wing Alex Tuch and left wing James Neal talk during practice at Capital One Arena in Washington on Friday

Washington will have a chance to secure their first ever Stanley Cup championship when the series shifts back to Vegas for game five on Thursday.

In his first home Stanley Cup Final game after 13 long years checkered with as many disappointments as milestones, Alex Ovechkin was not going to be denied the opportunity to do something special.

Fleury stopped Kuznetsov's initial shot, but the puck spilled to Oshie, who kicked it from his skate to his stick at the lip of the crease before burying his eighth goal of the post-season.

Washington goes into Vegas knowing they can close out the series and end their 43 year drought with a huge performance by Braden Holtby and a 4 assist game by Evgeny Kuznetsov Washington can feel very confident in knowing that they hold the power in this series which can be closed out Thursday at 8 est in Vegas The Golden Knights need to regroup fast if they want to continue this fantastic run that they have. John Carlson scored in the second with Michael Kempny and Brett Connolly scoring in the third.

Evgeny Kuznetsov, the NHL's leading scorer in the playoffs with 31 points, added four assists. Washington, which went through three coaches that first season, lost games 12-1 (twice), 11-1, 10-0, 10-2 and 10-3. 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.

Easy-going and even-keeled, the Vegas Golden Knights coach is matter-of-fact in his dealings whether he's talking to a young defenceman in his office or with reporters from the ominous-looking podium at the Stanley Cup Final.

"They didn't see a penalty on it", Gallant said after the game. Just not Vegas' night and not a good trip to Washington. The Toronto Maple Leafs erased a 3-0 deficit in 1942 against the Detroit Red Wings.

Sports Reporter Diane Roberts first met him, his wife Natasha, and their twins Nick and Alex named after Capitals players Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Ovechkin at Game 2, and wondered aloud whether one of their namesakes would do well in the game.

The Golden Knights are under serious pressure for the first time in the postseason. Many Russian hockey fans devotedly watch the Stanley Cup playoffs each year, either on cable television or by paying a fee and streaming games on NHL.com. Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson of the Golden Knights follow at +2200 and +2800, respectively.

"We're going to see what kind of team we are", the forward said following a 4-2 defeat that wasn't almost as close as the score indicated.

First, Capitals forward T.J. Oshie laid a reverse hit on Colin Miller that led to a scoring chance for Michael Kempny.

The Capitals were excellent at it in Game 3. It's a new day, we've got to get ready for Game 4, and you've just got to tell him to make it simple. Vegas didn't get that key bounce and they ended up conceding three goals in the first period.

It has been a full team effort as the Capitals forwards have made the Knights work hard just to get the puck in the offensive zone before filtering them to spots where the defenders can more easily manage the threat. "I'm pretty sure when the game is going to come, we're going to a little bit think about it". They were less aggressive on the forecheck, and had a series-high 26 shots blocked by Capitals.

They posed near St. Basil's Cathedral and even took the silver prize to be photographed in front of the mausoleum of Vladimir Lenin.

The original Capitals battled hard, the same way the Knights have, but just weren't good enough.

When the Capitals finally convinced him to come over, McPhee was sacked after just a 17-game taste of Kuznetsov.

Fall Out Boy is scheduled to play before Game 4 on Monday.
