It's all but over for the Cinderella Golden Knights — SIMMONS SNAPSHOTS

Las Vegas Golden Ticket

It should have been a goal. Washington coach Barry Trotz changed things up after Game 1, and the results were profound.

"You have to give your goalie a chance to make those saves", Gallant said. Holtby was probably the game's least appreciated storyline. "We also have to try to not let them set up, so if there's a turnover, a quick one, we can punt it up, go back on offense". "They're a great team over there". He finds me backdoor and I have an empty net. One is considerably more painful than the other, and neither will get you onto a "SportsCenter" highlight reel.

Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals took the D.C.by storm on Monday night, and with the First-Year Player Draft taking place, some of the Nationals took in the eventful evening at Capital One Arena, cheering on the Washington Capitals as they moved closer to eliminating the Vegas Golden Knights with a 6-2 victory. Except, they now trail the Capitals 3-1 in their best-of-seven series, a deficit only one team has overcome in the history of the Stanley Cup Final.

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

The Golden Knights, dealing with their first losing streak of the postseason, came out flying and had several opportunities to score.

The expansion team's Cinderella run is in danger of coming to a quick end.

"Not where we want to be, for sure", said goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. A nifty passing sequence presented James Neal an open net, but his shot clanged off the post. "In the three games, we haven't been good enough", he said. I don't know, it's tough. "They took penalties and we're OK with that if they want to take penalties".

"Right now, everyone's starting to write us off", said Golden Knights forward David Perron. They can't do wrong. And Fleury was unable to bail them out like he has in earlier rounds.

Trailing in the series, the Golden Knights came out firing the puck from all areas and angles on the ice. T.J. Oshie got the first, and John Carlson got the second.


"They've got three guys (back)", he said. It could have been 3-0 for Vegas.

Kuznetsov leads all playoff scorers with 31 points, Ovechkin is tied for the goal lead with 14 and Holtby showed again his ability to alter the course of a game. If they're in, exactly. "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".

Oshie, who had once again travelled by subway with Matt Niskanen to the game, scored the power play when he followed up on a shot from Kuznetsov for his eighth goal of the playoffs.

Wilson made it 2-0 with 3:34 left in the period when he intercepted a pass by Vegas defenceman Deryk Engelland after an offensive zone draw and worked a slick give-and-go with Kuznetsov to beat Fleury for his fifth.

They need to morph back into the Golden Misfits and rediscover the wolfpack-like mentality that pressures opponents into turnovers. Brett Connolly's power-play tally with 1:09 left was the coup de grace.

Braden Holtby began the playoffs on the bench.

Players were too busy celebrating the win to notice the crab, now missing a claw, but the Capitals later tweeted about it early Sunday.

"With us being in the business of catering to the locals, we probably embrace the spirit and enthusiasm in a larger way than others may have", said Lori Nelson, a Station spokeswoman."It was hard not to catch that same fever".
