Fall Out Boy jams before Game 4 of Cup Final

Fall Out Boy jams before Game 4 of Cup Final

The fact that the team had to distance itself from the parade plans on the same night it suffered a blowout loss to drop to 3-1 in the series against Washington didn't help the optics of the situation. After dropping the first game of the series in Las Vegas, the Capitals have bounced back with two straight wins and have earned an edge in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Golden Knights had some good chances, but Washington did a great job of holding onto momentum and limiting the damage, even when they were outmanned.

Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson, center, celebrates his goal against the Vegas Golden Knights with Alex Ovechkin, left, of Russian Federation, and Nicklas Backstrom, right, of Sweden, during the second period in Game 4 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final, Monday, June 4, 2018, in Washington. In addition to scoring 14 postseason goals, Ovechkin has been playing a relentless physical game, banging into opponents and finishing his checks with authority.

Gallant, however, would not confirm that Perron would be the one scratched for Monday's game.

With a league-leading 31 points, Kuznetsov is making a case to be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor as playoff MVP.

While Vegas rang several shots off posts, the Capitals seized just about every opportunity as they have throughout this surprising run. Ovechkin leads the Caps with five power-play goals, while Alex Tuch and Colin Miller top the Knights with three each. Expect both of them to continue where they left off and play extremely well in game four. He received a pass from Nicklas Backstrom and blasted a slapshot past Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to seal the win for Washington. Since it is Vegas' first official season in the National Hockey League, the organization partook in an expansion draft during the offseason. He has a 4.09 goals-against average and.816 save percentage in the series - after entering the final at 1.68 and.947 for the first three rounds of the playoffs. Since joining Vegas, Fleury has been godly. "Even when maybe we were not at our best, we have got it done". In 18 starts, Fleury is 13-5 with a 1.95 goals against average.

"One win away; it's the hardest one", said Alex Ovechkin, who is trying to become the first Russian player to captain a Stanley Cup champion.

When the Penguins trounced the Flyers in the 2008 Eastern Conference final, then survived an epic seven-game series against the Capitals the next year en route to a Cup, that assessment seemed sound.

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".

The Golden Knights made their first lineup change of the Final by going with forward Tomas Tatar, who finished a plus-1.

As for my prediction, I have to side with the Knights.

Just look at this shot chart that lays out where each team's chances came from at 5-on-5 through the first two periods. "I think if you try to get six defensemen that all play the exact same way, in my opinion you're not going to be a very balanced team or you're not going to go very far".

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