'Flower' wilts: Golden Knights must play better for Fleury

"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".

Coach Barry Trotz wants his players to relax and not think too much about the chance in front of them. Meanwhile, center Evgeny Kuznetsov has at least one point in 12 of his last 13 games.

"But you have to just focus on the one game, and it's the next one". He received a pass from Nicklas Backstrom and blasted a slapshot past Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to seal the win for Washington.

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.

Already trailing the best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final 2-1, the Golden Knights are in desperate need of a win tonight at Capital One Arena against Washington.

Vegas now sits on the brink of elimination despite directing 71 shots towards goal compared to Washington's 41. But they also say that you make your own luck.so go ahead and pick your own narrative, I guess?

Nate Schmidt admitted that indeed, the Golden Knights are playing a tighter box against the Capitals, "It's an acknowledgement to probably the best power play in the league the last four years, how good they've been". I just hit the post. "It's a privilege to play with him". Ovi had eight shots in the first period of Game 3, and while the period ended scoreless, it set the tone for the rest of the game. It didn't matter. Every shot Vegas took was the equivalent of rolling snake eyes. The 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, and the expansion team's Cinderella run could be over in a matter of days.

So we know that Washington has been quite effective - particularly in the last two games - at limiting those "Grade A" chances by Vegas. Max Scherzer and Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals baseball team were introduced as the "Fans of the Game".

Cavaliers center Kevin Love appeared overcome with childlike joy watching LeBron James make a spectacular dunk in the first half. Players not named LeBron James were contributing, and it was a single-possession game down the stretch.

"It probably changes the game".

Accustomed to defying logic over the course of their magical first season, the Knights responded with four straight victories to dispose of the heavily favoured Jets in five games.

"There was nothing that he could have done", Gallant said. "But for the people of Chicago to feel that they needed to donate money and for me to give it to Fort Dupont I thought turned a pretty bad thing into something that could change many kids' lives in that area".

"I think it's a great stat when you talk about winning, because it shows you that players are ready to play, ready to compete, ready to battle and do whatever it takes to win", Gallant said. But this time he hit the post. Holtby got some good fortune from the post on shots by Alex Tuch, Neal and Brayden McNabb, but he also had not allowed a goal in more than 62 minutes stretching back to Game 3.

"He played big minutes against top players, be it the (Evgeni) Malkins and the (Sidney) Crosbys, and he's done a really good job", Trotz said".

When the dollars didn't add up to be able to keep a handful of key contributors to back-to-back Presidents' Trophy-winning teams, the Capitals went bargain hunting to sign bought-out winger Devante Smith-Pelly, who general manager Brian MacLellan termed a "project". He's been chasing the Stanley Cup since he was a young boy growing up in Summerside, P.E.I., and has never had an opportunity as good as this one to win it.

Without tickets to Game 4, Merritt only hopes someone else follows his lead.

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