Lalonde was acquired by Washington, which dressed almost 40 players that year, in a deal with Pittsburgh in December 1974, a couple of weeks after the Penguins humbled the Capitals by a combined 14-1 score in a weekend home-and-home series.
Capitals fans had plenty to cheer about during the first period of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final after goals by T.J. Oshie, Tom Wilson and Devante Smith-Pelly. "So I think that probably had something to do with everyone having one tonight". The under has hit in four of six for Vegas, and the Capitals have outscored 7-1 in their last two home games. He finished with 28 saves. In 14 career games against Washington, the Slovak forward has 9 points, including multi-goal games in both of his matchups with the Caps this season.
"We've just got to get back to our game, getting pucks deep and getting in on the forecheck", Vegas defenceman Deryk Engelland said. Neal fired across the crease and Holtby extended his paddle, much like he did in robbing Alex Tuch in the final minute of Game 2.
"We've been in this position before", Knights forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare said.
"That's the way it gets", Ovechkin said of the rough stuff. Then he popped the puck up and over goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Now he and the Golden Knights have lost back-to-back games for the first time this postseason, which is not Fleury's fault thanks to a spotty defense and an offense that's struggle to gain a foothold in the Capitals' zone. Now, the expansion darlings are in danger of falling short of their ultimate goal unless they can put together three consecutive victories. "We know there's been heartbreak here, but that has scarred over and made us stronger for it".
The must-win Golden Knights arrived on time, created chances, but couldn't get one to go.
The 15-year-old from Chevy Chase, Maryland, said before Game 4 that a crab is better than the "stupid" plastic flamingo thrown onto the ice to celebrate Vegas Golden Knights wins.
The Capitals bested Vegas 3-1 Saturday night, and have won two-straight games.
It has been 76 years since any National Hockey League teams rebounded from a 3-1 series deficit to win the Stanley Cup.
"I thought we gave them some different looks", Carlson said. "We were doing the right things". "But we have a good bunch of guys with a lot of character in the room".More news: Giuliani: Kim Jong-un 'begged' for summit to take place

Vegas has lost two straight for the first time in nearly two months.
In game three, Ovechkin and Kuznetsov each had a goal in the second period which gave the Capitals a commanding two goal lead approximately halfway through the contest. While Tatar played all 82 games in the regular season, including the last 20 for the Golden Knights, and tallied 20 goals on the year, he has been scratched in 12 of 18 playoff games this season.
"You have to lose four games before you lose the Stanley Cup", Gallant said. They pushed hard in the opening minutes, hit a post and missed a couple of chances and found themselves trailing 3-0 after one period. He plays the game like everybody else.
Gallant said he never considered pulling Fleury.
"The Department of Public Works did not consult with the team or have any dialogue with the team whatsoever before adding this item to the County Meeting agenda", the Golden Knights said in a statement.
Perhaps they will fall apart, but the prediction here is that they will respond with strength and goal.
Carlson's power-play goal was set up by Kuznetsov's pass.
Throughout the playoffs, Vegas has been at their best after consecutive losses.
So which team does Oh think will take the crucial Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final?
