Stanley Cup Final: Capitals' Kuznetsov injury update for Game 3

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

The Capitals lead the best-of-seven finals series 3-1 before the next game in Las Vegas on Thursday. When the Capitals took a lead in Game 3, they went into their now-patented scheme. But this game turned just 4 1/2 minutes into the first period as James Neal looked like he had a sure goal with a wide-open net to the right of Brayden Holtby.

The Golden Knights had just 22 shots on goal Saturday; they had 26 shots blocked.

Washington goes into Vegas knowing they can close out the series and end their 43 year drought with a huge performance by Braden Holtby and a 4 assist game by Evgeny Kuznetsov Washington can feel very confident in knowing that they hold the power in this series which can be closed out Thursday at 8 est in Vegas The Golden Knights need to regroup fast if they want to continue this incredible run that they have.

Kuznetsov, who finished with four assists, picked up his third of the night on John Carlson's power-play goal late in the second period that all but sealed the victory. Ping! The puck skipped behind Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and slithered harmlessly toward the back boards. The Capitals' power play was once again lethal, going 3-for-5 on the night, while Vegas went 0-for-4. After cruising through three rounds easily, nothing looks easy right now for Vegas because the Capitals have mastered the art of frustration, and are two wins away from hoisting the Cup for the first time.

"We don't dwell on the game before, let alone things that happened in years past", Oshie said.

Believe it or not, we now live in a world where the Washington Capitals are just one win away from a Stanley Cup.

"One win away - it's the hardest one", said Washington captain Alex Ovechkin.

"Go home, win one game, and the pressure is on them".

Notes: Gallant said he's considering lineup changes for Game 4, with forwards Tomas Tatar and/or Oscar Lindberg seemingly the most likely candidates to draw in.

Trailing in the series, the Golden Knights came out firing the puck from all areas and angles on the ice.

"They came in with a little bit of push, and I like the way we responded", Carlson said. Brett Connolly's power-play tally with 1:09 left was the coup de grace. There is nearly a poetic element to it all, that it was Neal the former Penguin, and that they're beating Marc-Andre Fleury now, the man who stood in their way for so many of those sorry springs. Oshie fought for every inch of the ice, opened the scoring and broke Colin Miller's nose on Washington's fifth goal. Braden Holtby easily a potential Vezena victor and a potential Conn Smyth trophy victor got the start to try and push his team to a 3-1 series lead.

"I knew coming in, you only get so much chances to stick", Smith-Pelly told The Washington Post after Game 4.

It sounds easy enough, but the Capitals have mastered their trap since about the 65-game mark of the regular season, when head coach Barry Trotz challenged them to renew their commitment to defence.

In his first home Cup Final game, Ovechkin attempted eight shots in the first period and scored a goal that seemed inevitable. Gallant didn't appreciate a line of questioning that veered towards the struggles of Shea Theodore - dinged with a minus on four of the last five even-strength goals scored by the Washington Capitals - and shot back with a spirited defence of his talented blue liner. I think we'll have to keep it simple. Devante Smith-Pelly beat Fleury glove side with 6:06 remaining the increase the Capitals' lead. "We played pretty hard".

Meanwhile, the Caps were held without a lot of high-danger chances, but they made the most of what they got. Holtby - well-aware of the Golden Knights' ability to cross up opposing goaltenders - had his puck-handling attempt intercepted by Bellemare.

Wilson then converted a give-and-go pass from Kuznetsov to make it 2-0.
