Is the Vegas Golden Knights unbelievable run over? will the Washington Capitals win their first ever Stanley Cup all these questions may be answered by the time game 4 ended Monday night as the WashingtonCapitals push the Vegas Golden Knights to the brink of elimination by taking a 3-1 series lead.
Under is 3-0-1 in Capitals last 4 Thursday games and Capitals are 1-5 in their last 6 Thursday games and under is 5-1-2 in Capitals last 8 overall.
"I thought we played our best period of the Final (in the first period)", saidVegas coach Gerard Gallant. I'm the kind of guy who is watching basketball at 7 PM and then watching tennis at 1 A.M. "When he's confident, he's making saves where even when they're real tough opportunities, he makes it look relatively easy and he nearly does it with, I hate to use the word cocky, but there's nearly a cockiness to the way he makes a save". "I thought they had a pretty good level of urgency in their game...but when it mattered, we were able to get it done". "It's probably a different game after that", Neal said.
"It probably changes the game".
Erik Haula unluckily had a pass in front strike his skate and hit the post after just 67 seconds, Reilly Smith hit the side of the net with another grade-A opportunity, and James Neal somehow fired across the face of an open goal with Capitals netminder Braden Holtby at his mercy on a power play. Oshie scored, along with John Carlson, Tom Wilson, Michal Kempny and BrettConnolly. "We want the Cup!" rang out from the crowd. The only club to rally from such a deficit was the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, who completed a rally from a 3-0 hole against the Detroit Red Wings.
Here's what you need to know from Monday's Game 4. "But we just grinded it out, we use our chances, stick to the system, stick to the plan, and we get the result". Oshie added a pair of assists while Nicklas Backstrom had three. They were less aggressive on the forecheck, and had a series-high 26 shots blocked by Capitals. Kuznetsov padded his lead as the playoffs' leading scorer with primary assists on Oshie's power-play goal that made it 1-0 and Wilson's that doubled the lead.
Orpik scored the Game 2 victor - his first goal of any kind since February 26, 2016 and first in the playoffs with the Capitals - and didn't even remember celebrating. 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.
Fleury called the loss "frustrating and demoralizing". It was the first goal against Holtby in 62:14 of ice time, since Game 3.
Brayden McNabb's floater from the point hit the post before Ryan Carpenter chimed one off the crossbar on the follow up as Vegas failed to connect on another man advantage despite some sustained pressure. We get the first one and - oh, it's tough. Then, they disappeared. Their chances in the series likely went with them.
"We knew this game was very important for us". "Until that buzzer goes, try not to think about it too much".
Vegas has lost back-to-back games for the first time in the playoffs, scoring only three total goals in those defeats.
