Capitals have contained the Golden Knights' attack

Max Scherzer and Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals baseball team were introduced as the "Fans of the Game".

"Just gotta know in the back of our heads it's still there", said Vegas defenceman Luca Sbisa. "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". Washington is up 3-1 and can win its first Stanley Cup on Thursday night in Las Vegas.

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.

When they returned to the bench, Ovechkin embraced Smith-Pelly and appeared to kiss him.

The ugly numbers behind 3-1. This isn't exactly where the 25-year-old thought he'd be just under a year ago when he found out a minute before the buyout deadline that the Devils were cutting him.

Before you make your pick, you need to see what SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh has to say.

That means Vegas must use simpler plays, not try to make that extra pass on a possession, and just start firing the puck at the net more. He developed into a teammate on and off the ice that helped propel the Capitals to another division title despite losing forwards Justin Williams, Marcus Johansson and Daniel Winnik, and defensemen Nate Schmidt, Karl Alzner and Kevin Shattenkirk last summer.

However, that script has not gotten into the hands of the Washington Capitals.

Neal then added: "It changes the game for sure if I score there, but no feeling sorry for yourself".

Smith-Pelly always seems to find the positive. Washington certainly did that on Monday night.

Kempny has done the same.

This time, Holtby missed.

The Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury allows a third-period goal to Brett Connolly (not pictured) of the Capitals in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on June 4, 2018 in Washington. T.J. Oshie got the first, and John Carlson got the second. We've gotta be real good offensively. He's just one of those players that is effective - efficient, effective, gets it done. "It changes where you're going". "You talk about a guy who's developing maybe from more of a stay-at-home type of defenseman to a guy who recognizes opportunity".

It is the third straight game the Capitals have scored first and they have won the last two for a 2-1 series lead. Mobile puck-movers like Erik Karlsson are prized and behemoths like Hal Gill are gone.

I've been a part of that group - I watched it, never actually a part of the group - but watched it happen over the years. I didn't know if I could play against them or not. They got some lucky bounces and deflections in the process, but Washington's players did a great job of corralling those fortunate bounces and turning them into results.

Some Russian stars return home after their NHL contracts end, and they compete in the Kontinental Hockey League to become fresh sources of pride in a country where sport has been used - and manipulated, as the long-running Olympics doping saga showed - for patriotic benefit.
