Capitals Win Game 4, Take Commanding Series Lead

Capitals beat Golden Knights in Game 3 to grab 2-1 lead in Stanley Cup final Stanley Cup Final: Ice in Vegas works better in drinks
Eugene Bates | 08 June, 2018, 13:11

Ovechkin provided an immediate reminder after the game Monday that being up 3-1 in the series means there's work still to be done.

Neal finally got Vegas on the board at 5:43 of the third period.

The Caps broke things open late in the first period.

The Golden Knights, dealing with their first losing streak of the postseason, came out flying and had several opportunities to score. Vegas only forced 21 saves out of Holtby. The Golden Knights hit a couple of posts and couldn't score.

T.J. Oshie tallied the game's first goal on a power play with just over 10 minutes remaining in the first period.

Ovechkin, 32, who has played with unbridled emotion in the playoffs, downplayed where the Caps stand.

Blocked shots are not the most popular hockey statistic, with its critics saying it merely shows how many shot attempts and scoring threats the opponent is getting. Washington goalie Braden Holtby said after the game he thought it was in. "In the three games, we haven't been good enough", he said. He knows all about the plastic rats in Florida, the octopi in Detroit and the catfish in Nashville. "Definitely one I want to have back". The following game is Thursday at T-Mobile Arena.

The event will feature prizes, Chance, the Golden Aces, Knights Line presented by Drumbots and the Golden Knights. It has put the pressure squarely on the shoulders of Vegas and head coach Gerard Gallant, who is already publicizing possible adjustments and lineup changes in advance of Game 4.

They also got to cheer during a TV timeout. Humboldt Broncos forward Kaleb Dahlgren was also on hand.

Dahlgren got a nice reaction from the crowd and then a roar when he lifted up his yellow Humboldt jersey to reveal a red Capitals jersey.

Washington is looking to take a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-7 series. Through three games he has one risky shot attempt at 5-on-5, which is the same number as Capitals checking-line centre Jay Beagle. Not long after that, Smith-Pelly scored from a tough angle on the left side after a weird bounce.

Vegas winger James Neal hitting the post early in the first epitomized their lack of puck luck.

Jonathan Marchessault issued a challenge after the Vegas Golden Knights were almost run out of the rink to open the Western Conference final against the Winnipeg Jets.

The Golden Knights look much quicker on offense than in Game 3, when they took only 22 shots. Vegas has won four straight games after consecutive losses, and they are 8-3 total in their inaugural season in this situation. His lone game without a point during that stretch came in Game 2, during which he only played just over four minutes due to an injury.

The Golden Knights are starting Tomas Tatar in place of David Perron, who was scratched.

The atmosphere was electric before the game.

The series now shifts back to Las Vegas for a critical Game 5. And, not surprisingly, Vegas sputtered the rest of the way Monday night in a 6-2 defeat that has the Golden Knights on the brink of elimination.

The cheapest tickets available on Ticket IQ and StubHub are more than $1,000 each.

If fans can't make it to an official watch party, they are encouraged to stop by Henderson Pavilion to watch the game, according to a press release, or the club's other official partners including Born and Raised, Topgolf, Nacho Daddy and Scooter's Pub.

Vegas acquired Tatar at the trade deadline from the Red Wings for a first-round pick, a second-round pick, and a third-round pick in the National Hockey League draft. After struggling somewhat at the end of the regular season, he has been on point in the playoffs with a 2.13 goals-against average and a.922 save percentage.

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