Alex Ovechkin: Caps treating every game like it's their last

Alex Ovechkin: Caps treating every game like it's their last

It should have been a goal. Look for him to recognize the moment and have a big game.

"It probably changes the game", Neal said.

"It probably changes the game". We get the first one and - oh, it's tough. "Each win you get hungrier".

Vegas, who are aiming to become the first team in major U.S. sport history to win the title in their first season in existence, have now lost three successive games.

More and more, that is looking like a strong possibility.

The Golden Knights have earned rave reviews this season for their great starts, and relentless playing style. Now, this looks like a team that is quickly running out of luck and chips.

Holtby, though, who has been the better of the goaltenders in a series in which he was supposed to be second best to Marc-Andre Fleury, has been everything a championship goalie is supposed to be in the post-season. "We're not the most skilled line but we're a hard-working line".

Washington came out and treated the raucous crowd at Capital One Arena to a 6-2 victory over the Golden Knights in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night.

The Golden Knights cut it to 4-2 with a couple goals in the 3rd, but couldn't keep the Capitals off the board. If you total up the numbers, that trio - even with Karlsson struggling - still has 11 unsafe shot attempts through three games, which is comfortably the best in the series. If it wasn't for a huge mistake by Holtby in Game 3, they would have been shutout.

T.J. Oshie, Tom Wilson and Devante Smith-Pelly all scored in the first period. But this win belonged to the hockey gods as much as it did with any of Washington's star players. Many Russian hockey fans devotedly watch the Stanley Cup playoffs each year, either on cable television or by paying a fee and streaming games on NHL.com.

"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. And when they do, the posts seem to bail them out again and again.

However that proved not to be the case, with Sky taking four packages of the seven available and BT one, leaving two unsold.

Who knows if things would have been different on Monday night if Neal put the puck in the net? Instead, it busted it wide open. "We have to play the same way and then bear down when we have those chances". Something that was mostly absent from Vegas attackers in Game 3.

"We've been in this position before", Knights forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare said. If they're in, exactly ... That may be a bit of an overstatement to some but for those who haven't been around too see the 1980-83 New York Islanders Dynasty or the Edmonton Oilers of the 80s as they manged to win 5 cups in 10 years during that decade but i was around to witness the very first back to back Stanley Cup champions of the salary cap era the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Brett Connolly added a power play goal for the Capitals with 1:09 left in the game.

After Wilson scored at 16:26, Smith-Pelly's goal came with just 20.5 seconds to play in the opening period.

That was all they needed.

The expansion Golden Knights have been impressive this entire season and through three rounds of the playoffs. The Capitals ended up with a 5-on-3 power play, and they scored to seal the victory.

Braden Holtby began the playoffs on the bench.

Eventually, frustration started to set in, with Vegas taking a string of penalties to end the game. The Knights then won the next four games.

That's not to say Vegas didn't have chances.

"It's do-or-die for us", said Neal. "We'll find a way to make it work". "Hopefully, they go our way".
