With their season on the line and no more losses to spare, Vegas will look to give Washington their best game of the series Thursday night.
Captain Alex Ovechkin, who scored an early power-play goal, and his teammates are Washington's first championship hockey team - and the city's first champion in a major pro sport since the Redskins won the Super Bowl in early 1992. Marc-Andre Fluery has regressed at the worst possible time after bailing the Golden Knights out multiple times in the first three rounds. Then immediately following that goal, a massive fight broke out. "We talked about just having make sure that we've got focus on one game".
Moments later John Carlson blasted another slap shot, but Fleury shuffled and kicked it aside with his left leg pad to keep the game scoreless.More news: Jared Leto's Joker Standalone Movie Officially in the Works!

- 10 different players recorded a point in their Game 4 win. Ovechkin has 26 points in 26 potential series-clinching games in his career. They started in a two game hole against the Columbus Blue Jackets but battled back to take the series in 7 games, defeated the Penguins in 6 games and ousted Tampa Bay in their first conference final in 20 years. They need a big first period.
Now, their legacies won't be hindered by a lack of a Stanley Cup. Based on the series so far that has been the Capitals. Vegas is +165 laying.5 goals in the opening period according to 5Dimes. "He's been great for us, so he's probably going to have his best game tonight". Try and get a normal night's sleep, have your usual breakfast, visualize about that night's game, try and get in a pre-game nap if you can and go to work and do your business. Puck drops at 8:00 p.m.
Forwards (12): Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, William Carrier, Cody Eakin, Erik Haula, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, James Neal, Tomas Nosek, David Perron, Reilly Smith, Tomas Tatar and Alex Tuch.
