Missed chances push Vegas to brink of elimination in Final

Capitals beat Golden Knights in Game 3 to grab 2-1 lead in Stanley Cup final

John Carlson scored in the second with Michael Kempny and Brett Connolly scoring in the third. Braden Holtby made 28 saves for Washington, which can wrap up the series in Sin City on Thursday. "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".

Now trailing the Washington Capitals 2-1 with the Stanley Cup on the line, head coach Gerard Gallant echoed much the same sentiment as Marchessault did three weeks ago. Meanwhile, center Evgeny Kuznetsov has at least one point in 12 of his last 13 games. Vegas now has no answers for this duo as both were able to create multiple chances throughout the entirety of game three.

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.

While the Capitals, Ovechkin and Holtby have been getting better each game, the Golden Knights have hit a snag for the first time in the playoffs.

The Washington Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights have had an entertaining Stanley Cup Final thus far. In Game 4, he had that locked-in, can't be beat look about him in goal for Washington, and even with a little luck and some goal posts hit, Holtby was strong, sharp, on his angles and nearly impossible to beat.

Nadal's match with Schwartzman is postponed until 12.00PM on Thursday
He led 30-15 when play ended at 18:37 BST, returning at 11:00 BST on Thursday to wrap up the set and level in a matter of seconds. Nadal will next play 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman , who rallied to beat Kevin Anderson 1-6, 2-6, 7-5, 7-6 (0), 6-2.

Blocked shots are not the most popular hockey statistic, with its critics saying it merely shows how many shot attempts and scoring threats the opponent is getting. We lost the first game against Winnipeg [in the Western Conference Final], we had a lot of media thinking we'd get run over the entire series against them. Ovechkin is arguably the best player to have played in the National Hockey League without winning a Stanley Cup.

Tuch and Brayden McNabb both lined shots off the post later in the game, and Neal scored with just under 16 minutes left to make it 4-1.

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. He's a physical presence back there and maybe gives guys a second less to think with the puck, I guess you could say, and maybe rush a play or something if they don't want to get hit. "It's a privilege to play with him". It didn't matter. Every shot Vegas took was the equivalent of rolling snake eyes.

Vegas winger James Neal hitting the post early in the first epitomized their lack of puck luck.

"We obviously got some breaks at the start of the game", Holtby said. "It's not exactly fun, but you gotta do it if you really want to win", Devante Smith-Pelly said. It's a team game. "It's probably a different game after that".

The Knights felt they had put up their best period of the series, but still found themselves in a massive hole.

"We need more from our other players", said Gallant.

The Capitals scored just over six minutes later to take a 1-0 lead.

Smith-Pelly's goal came after Nosek's tally, and it allowed the Capitals to have a bit of breathing room in the game's final 6:07. "To see him get rewarded with a goal at a big time, it makes me feel good".

Oh confidently nailed his Game 3 pick, and now he has found an x-factor for Game 4 that he thinks will decide the victor as he goes for an astonishing 16-3 run on his Washington picks.
