Capitals Take 3-1 Lead Over Vegas in Cup Final

Contributed by our partners at Associated Press

The Washington Capitals are one win away from the first Stanley Cup championship in the 43-year history of the franchise.

T.J. Oshie, Tom Wilson and Devante Smith-Pelly all scored in the first period and the Capitals cruised from there in routing the Vegas Golden Knights 6-2 to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Only the 1942 Detroit Red Wings have blown a 3-1 series lead after winning the first three games against Toronto.

Game 5 is Thursday night in Las Vegas.
