Heading into Monday's Game 4, Washington has a chance to strangle this series before it's really even started.
T.J. Oshie has given Washington an early 1-0 lead over Vegas in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.
One of the strengths of this Washington team has been the players' ability to move past the losing postseason culture.
The game's final minutes were chippy with several post-whistle scrums.
Vegas responded with third-period goals from James Neal and Reilly Smith, the latter coming with seven-and-a-half minutes remaining, but the Capitals pulled clear again when Michal Kempny and BrettConnolly both found the net.
But in the last two games, the Knights have hit a wall against a stout defensive Capitals group that smothers the opposition in the neutral zone, especially once they get a lead. The Knights' success and current Stanley Cup playoff run has resulted in a marketing marriage with Las Vegas that has been far more successful than anyone could have imagined.
"Obviously, when you're a goalie, you don't want to get scored on", Fleury said. Now, the expansion darlings are in danger of falling short of their ultimate goal unless they can put together three consecutive victories.
Through four games of the final, that number sits at.845, but it mostly reflects the loose play in front of him rather than a drop in form. Then he popped the puck up and over goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.

So we know that Washington has been quite effective - particularly in the last two games - at limiting those "Grade A" chances by Vegas. "So they're quite valuable in series where there's a lot of net pressure and a lot of low play". And once we got past the first 10 minutes of that game, I thought we were fine. Vegas head coach Gerard Gallant felt their should have been a penalty on the play and that the collision broke Miller's nose. "We were doing the right things". "We hit two posts, we had some good chances and we got nothing out of it".
Washington is looking to take a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-7 series.
"He made a couple mistakes, ended up in the back of our net", Gallant said. It's done with. It's not the first time it's happened.
"The kids thought we were air hockey players", the Toronto native said with a laugh.
2nd period brought on more action but saw only one goal scored and that was for the team who had everything going right for them through the whole game the Capitals John Carlson scores his 5th of the playoffs at 15:23 on the power play.
Perhaps they will fall apart, but the prediction here is that they will respond with strength and objective.
The Golden Knights, a team in desperate need of a boost of confidence, collectively shrugged as a golden opportunity slipped away.
Walker, who was announced as a scratch for game four, made history in the regular season when he became the first Australian to play in the National Hockey League.
