WASHINGTON (AP) James Neal had the puck on his stick and was staring at an open net. In a can’t-miss situation Columbus Blue Jackets T-Shirts Authentic , that’s exactly what he did.Poised to give the Vegas Golden Knights the opening goal in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, the veteran leader of this upstart expansion team hit the right post . Ping! The puck skipped behind Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and slithered harmlessly toward the back boards.”You want those chances. Nine times out of 10 you probably put that in the back of the net,” Neal said. ”I had the composure to wait. And then you shoot it and you’re like, `Oh!”’The Golden Knights, a team in desperate need of a boost of confidence, collectively shrugged as a golden opportunity slipped away.”It definitely would have changed the outcome of the game and would have given us momentum,” said right wing Alex Tuch, who knows a thing or two about being coming up empty on a close-in shot.Not surprisingly, the Golden Knights sputtered the rest of the way Monday night in a 6-2 defeat that put them on the brink of elimination. Washington is up 3-1 and can win its first Stanley Cup on Thursday night in Las Vegas.”Go home, win one game and the pressure is on them,” Neal said, hopefully.Although the Capitals have blown many a playoff series in the past, only one team, the 1942 Detroit Red Wings Columbus Blue Jackets Hoodies Authentic , has lost the Stanley Cup Final after holding a 3-1 lead.”Not where we want to be, that’s for sure,” Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury said. ”But we have a good bunch of guys with a lot of character in the room. Nobody’s quitting.”Barring a comeback of historic proportions – an unlikely occurrence after being outscored 12-5 over the past three games – the Golden Knights will always remember this series for ”The Stick” and ”The Post.””The Stick” was wielded by Holtby , who used it late in Game 2 to snuff a seemingly sure goal by Tuch in a 3-2 Washington victory. ”The Post” is a symbol of the frustration Vegas has experienced in this series after winning 12 of 15 in roaring to the Western Conference title.Who knows if things would have been different on Monday night if Neal put the puck in the net?This much is certain: The reeling Golden Knights were looking for something, anything, to build on when they entered Game 4, and a 1-0 lead would have been splendid. Presented with a power play in a scoreless first period, Vegas worked the puck around smartly in the Washington zone. Then, Erik Haula whisked a cross-ice pass to Neal on the left side of the net, and Holtby was slow to react.”We obviously got some breaks at the start of the game,” the goaltender said. ”Honestly, I thought it was in. Somehow, it didn’t go in.”Said Neal: ”It’s not like anyone made a save. I shot it off the post on the far side. It’s done with. It’s not the first time it’s happened. Probably won’t be the last. But at this stage, at that moment Columbus Blue Jackets Hats Authentic , it changes the game.”The Capitals rattled off three straight goals before the period ended to take full control.Game over. On to the next one for the Golden Knights, who face elimination for the first time during the playoffs.”You can’t feel sorry for yourself. You’ve got to win a game at home,” Neal said. ”That’s what we’ll focus on. I like the way we played. You’ve got to take the positives.”Coach Gerard Gallant insisted: ”Tonight’s game was a step forward. Obviously, though, we have no more room for error.”The Golden Knights could use a little luck. Tuch and Brayden McNabb both lined shots off the post after Neal, who scored with just under 16 minutes left to make it 4-1.But the outcome by then was all but decided.The Golden Knights have struggled to generate offense against the tenacious Washington defense, and Fleury has not been as sharp as he was in Vegas’ three previous series. He gave up six goals on 23 shots as Vegas dropped its third straight game.”Obviously, when you’re a goalie, you don’t want to get scored on,” Fleury said. ”There was a lot of that tonight. It’s never a good feeling.”—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals BOSTON (AP) The Bruins didn’t seem like the team with the most to gain until it was too late Sunday night.Roberto Luongo came off the bench to shut down Boston in the third period, and the Florida Panthers dashed the Bruins’ hopes of getting the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 4-2 win.The Bruins trailed Tampa Bay by a point heading into the regular-season finale but couldn’t top a Panthers team that was eliminated from postseason contention Saturday.”You would have hoped the urgency would have been there with an opportunity to win the division,” Bruins forward David Backes said. ”We had it in the third, but needed it right from the get go.”Boston will host the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round beginning Thursday night. The Leafs were 3-1 against the Bruins in the regular season.Florida starter James Reimer left in the third with an injury, and Luongo came in and stopped eight shots over the last 8:07. The pair combined to make 41 saves.Henrik Borgstrom Custom Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys , Frank Vatrano, Maxim Mamin and Evgenii Dadonov scored for Florida.Backes and David Pastrnak had a goal each for Boston, with Pastrnak cutting it to 3-2 shortly before Reimer was hurt. Tuukka Rask made 22 saves.”We didn’t deserve to win and that’s the reality,” Rask said. ”I think it’s mental, just not being sharp enough at the drop of the puck.”After beating the Bruins for the second time in three games, Florida is headed home despite an impressive 25-8-2 run to end the season, including winning their last five.”It’s disappointing. We were really hoping that we’d get a little help from some other teams and maybe get in,” Panthers forward Vincent Trocheck said. ”I think there’s a lot of teams that didn’t want to play us if we did make it in.”Trailing 3-1 heading into the third, Boston made a furious surge, outshooting Florida 26-6 but only scoring once.Pastrnak scored a power-play goal at 9:54 of the third. Pastrnak led the Bruins with 35 goals and had a career-high 80 points.”It has been a tough schedule for us but that’s not an excuse,” Pastrnak said. ”The last few weeks have not been our best.”Dadonov put the game away when he scored an insurance goal with 1:49 remaining.”Would have been easy for them to come and in and shut it down but it’s a competitive league,” Bruins forward Brad Marchand said.Boston had been unbeaten in regulation over its last 11 home games and had beaten Florida in 12 of 13 overall.Boston lost in the first round last year to Ottawa in six games after failing to make the playoffs the two previous seasons.NOTES: Marchand failed to score in the Bruins’ final six games, and David Krejci has one goal in 16 games. … Borgstrom scored his first career goal. … Florida D Keith Yandle tied his career high with his 48th assist.—
