They capitalized

ARLINGTON Dylan DeMelo Jersey Womens , Va. (AP) Of all the ways the Washington Capitals have tried to win in the playoffs, none has been as effective as this.They pushed the pace with speed and skill when Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom were part of the ”Young Guns.” They made every game a coin flip with tight, Dale Hunter hockey. Each time, an early exit followed.This year is different. Suddenly, the Capitals are a suffocating defensive team that clogs the middle of the ice and makes even the fastest of opponents look slow.The Vegas Golden Knights are the latest to get frustrated by Washington’s neutral-zone pressure that took a toll on Columbus, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay, paving the way for this run to the Stanley Cup Final. After cruising through three rounds with ease, nothing looks easy right now for Vegas because the Capitals have mastered the art of frustration, and are two wins away from hoisting the Cup for the first time.”Offensive teams have certain tendencies, certain routes that they take through the neutral zone, plays they like to make, so if you can be on top of them and turn over some pucks Gabriel Gagne Jersey Womens , stifle them, make it hard for them to gain entry with possession, that frustrates skilled players,” defenseman Matt Niskanen said Sunday. ”If you can be in their face, just standing in the way, it’s amazing what that does.”It’s amazing the transformation the Capitals have made since coach Barry Trotz challenged players late in the regular season to embrace this approach. It was clear as early as Game 4 of the first round that the 1-1-3 trap in the neutral zone had the ability to essentially shut down the opposing attack, and since the first two playoff games Washington is 10-2 when scoring first.The Golden Knights have found how difficult it is to try to come back against the Capitals and need to adjust quickly down 2-1 in the Cup Final going into Game 4 Monday night. They have to make some adjustments before it’s too late.”Our guys who have a lot of speed can go back deeper, gather some speed,” winger David Perron said. ”Then the defensemen can try to freeze the first forechecker, kick it wide. These guys coming with speed, if they’re confronted, which they will be most times at the blue line James Van Riemsdyk Jersey Womens , you can put it in and go on the forecheck. You can have guys hang close to the right wing or up top, and as the puck is coming your way, win the one-on-one battle with support. … We also have to try to not let them set up, so if there’s a turnover, a quick one, we can punt it up, go back on offense.”The Penguins and Lightning tried that and couldn’t crack the Capitals well enough to advance.”They’re really good at slowing you down,” Lightning forward J.T. Miller said during the Eastern Conference final. ”Right when you want to just chip it and go, there’s a guy, there’s a wall there, and guys are ready to go back and get it on the other side. … It’s just their ability to stand up and make you force plays because it looks like there’s more ice than there is, and then all of a sudden they do a good job of staying in front and retrieving pucks.”Vegas is built on speed Matt Cullen Jersey Womens , but it’s hard to harness it if players can’t get blue line to blue line with the puck to create any offense. When the Capitals took a lead in Game 3, they went into their now-patented scheme.”It’s just kind of a group mentality to make life difficult on them,” winger Tom Wilson said. ”I think that’s when we’re at our best as a team is when we’re playing physical, we’re taking away time and space, making it difficult on their top guys.”That difficulty wears on a team, and Trotz said it’s noticeable when an opponent tries to change its game and manage the puck differently to counterbalance the trap. When it works effectively, not only does it limit changes against, but it creates the kind of odd-man rushes that have paced Washington’s offense this postseason.”It’s important to recognize moments when you can pressure, and we don’t want to get away from that, where we can send two guys and try to force teams into mistakes,” Niskanen said. ”If you can hold either the red line or the blue line with layers of support, you can force teams into turnovers Derek Grant Jersey Womens , and we’ve done a good job of that.”—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals— WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Dion Phaneuf is fitting in nicely with the Los Angeles Kings.The veteran defenseman scored on the power play for his third goal in four games with Los Angeles, helping the Kings cap a seven-game road trip with a 4-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.Alec Martinez also scored with the man advantage and Dustin Brown’s goal late in the third period stood as the winner. Torrey Mitchell had the other goal for the Kings, and Darcy Kuemper stopped 30 shots.Article continues below ...”Why are we calling them (Martinez and Phaneuf) the second unit?” Los Angeles coach John Stevens quipped. ”They were the first unit tonight.”I thought they were terrific. They had a game plan. They moved the puck quickly and they came up with a lot of loose pucks. Dion’s been a good fit there. He wants to shoot the puck all the time.”Anze Kopitar picked up an assist on Brown’s goal, giving him his 800th NHL point in his 900th career game.Patrik Laine scored on the power play with 49 seconds left to trim the deficit for Winnipeg, which had won three in a row. Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien had the other Jets goals, and Laine added an assist.Connor Hellebuyck made 28 saves for the Jets, who completed a 6-3-1 homestand – their longest of the season. Winnipeg has given up four power-play goals in the past two games.”Penalty kill is kind of leaking oil right now,” Wheeler said.”Just kind of wrong penalties at the wrong time. They capitalized, stole some momentum. Still 2-2 going into the third at home, I don’t think we hate that spot. Just weren’t able to get one early enough to go in the third.”It was the third consecutive win for the Kings, who were coming off a 3-1 victory at Chicago the night before and went 4-3 on their trip.Los Angeles is tied with Anaheim for third place in the Pacific Division with 71 points Erik Karlsson Jersey Womens , three behind second-place San Jose.”We knew we had a chance to get into the playoff picture here tonight so we were pretty determined to do that and we just did a great job,” said Kuemper, who won his fifth straight start.The Jets went on an early two-man advantage and made it count when Wheeler fired a high shot over Kuemper’s glove at 5:46 of the first period.Wheeler also had an assist in running his point streak to six games, with three goals and eight assists during that span. He has 14 points in his last 10 games.The Kings started off the second period on a high note with their own power-play goal. Martinez’s point shot went through traffic for his sixth of the season at 1:49.Phaneuf then added his sixth goal of the season – and third since being traded to the Kings from Ottawa last week – at 17:05 with Jets forward Nic Petan in the penalty box for slashing.”They had some really good screeners in front of me,” said Hellebuyck, who was making his ninth straight start. ”I found myself up high a lot.”Give them credit, they’re a good team. They’ve won a couple of Stanley Cups for that reason: They know how to screen a goaltender. It makes a world of difference.”Byfuglien’s fourth goal of the season tied it 2-all with 65 seconds left in the second.Los Angeles took a 3-2 lead when Mitchell scored his second goal in two games by picking up a bouncing puck in front of Winnipeg’s crease and finding some open net at 6:17.Byfuglien took a high-sticking penalty with 6:14 left in the third, and Brown scored eight seconds after it expired. Kopitar’s assist gave him 19 points in his last 16 games (seven goals, 12 assists).NOTES: Both teams went 2 for 5 on the power play. … Laine has scored an NHL-leading 16 of his 27 goals on the power play.UP NEXTKings: Host the Dallas Stars on Thursday.Jets: Begin a two-game road trip Friday in St. Louis.—
