Washington Takes 3-1 Lead Over Golden Knights

Vegas Golden Knights vs Washington Capitals Game 4 Review

It looks like Washington Capitals have figured how to bring down the mighty Vegas Golden Knights, who were enjoying a phenomenal season so far. Even though the Capitals may have lost Game 1 against the Golden Knights, they didn’t let that dampen their morale.

The Capitals have once again beaten the Golden Knights in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, extending their lead to 3 – 1. The Capitals are only one win away from securing the Stanley Cup for the first time in the history of their franchise.

Although the Golden Knights played a good game, they were unable to get past the incredible Braden Holtby, who kept them at bay for the first 40 minutes. During that time, the Capitals established a strong 4 – 0 lead, thanks to the efforts of T.J. Oshie, Tom Wilson, Devante Smith-Pelly, and John Carlson.

By the time the Golden Knights got back into the game with Reilly Smith and James Neal’s goals, there wasn’t enough time for them to make a comeback. The Capitals increased the lead with Michal Kempný’s open shot goal and sealed the deal from Brett Connolly’s strike during the power play, ending the fourth game of the series, 6 - 2.

As Washington Capitals are in the driver's seat at the moment, they will be entering Game 5 with the confidence that this is their year!
