Stanley Cup: Capitals one game from title after feasting on Golden Knights

Posted June 08, 2018

Vegas has ridden Fleury to this point and now has to cut down on the high-danger scoring chances he's facing and too often allowing to turn into goals. Five of the top 10 players in blocked shots this postseason play defenseman for the Capitals: Niskanen with a league-leading 51, Orpik with 43, Carlson and Dmitry Orlov tied with 40 and Kempny with 36.

The game's final minutes were chippy with several post-whistle scrums.

I'll spare you the lame jokes about bugs and windshields, but I'd bet that if you took a poll of Penguins fans - or even the actual players - before the 2018 playoffs, you would've seen the Flyers listed as the opponent that most gets the blood boiling and brain percolating.

"We obviously got some breaks at the start of the game", Holtby said.

"We still have a lot of minutes to be played, a lot of minutes", said Marc-Andre Fleury, the unflappable goalie who kept the Knights in Game 3 with 23 saves, including a handful of acrobatic ones.

Specifically, the Golden Knights are lamenting a play early in the first period of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, which they believe shifted the game - and the series. Now, the expansion darlings are in danger of falling short of their ultimate goal unless they can put together three consecutive victories. Vegas head coach Gerard Gallant felt their should have been a penalty on the play and that the collision broke Miller's nose.

Tatar has not played since Game 3 of the Western Conference final against Winnipeg.

The Golden Knights were 13-3 in the postseason until the current three-game skid. "In the three games, we haven't been good enough", he said. If you total up the numbers, that trio - even with Karlsson struggling - still has 11 risky shot attempts through three games, which is comfortably the best in the series. Tom Wilson scoring his 5th of the playoffs and Devante Smith-Pelly scoring his 6th all before the end of the period lots of great back and forth action throughout the period but it was clearly Washington's game to lose as the dominated the 1st period.

"They compete, they make it hard on guys in front of the net", Holtby said. "It's just a scramble play where they outcompeted us on that one".

In order to bounce back, Vegas must register more shots on goal.

After Wilson scored at 16:26, Smith-Pelly's goal came with just 20.5 seconds to play in the opening period. The Capitals defeated the Golden Knights 6-2. The average game (per 60 minutes) sees Vegas generate about 10.5 unsafe shot attempts per 60 minutes.

"At least five of the six goals were wide-open nets", Gallant said. "But we just grinded it out, we use our chances, stick to the system, stick to the plan, and we get the result". Neal fired across the crease and Holtby extended his paddle, much like he did in robbing Alex Tuch in the final minute of Game 2.

If luck has escaped the Golden Knights, the opposite has happened to the Capitals.

Carlson's power-play goal was set up by Kuznetsov's pass. "Upon learning that it was on the agenda, the Golden Knights requested that it be removed". 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 the Stanley Cup's Moscow debut that summer at Red Square, NHL teams have drafted more than 200 Russian players.
