LAS VEGAS — In a perfect world Tyron Smith Jersey Womens , the ideal ending to the storybook season of the expansion Vegas Golden Knights ends with the Stanley Cup being the main attraction during a victory parade down the famed Las Vegas Strip.

That may still happen but it will take another pinch-me moment in a season full of them for the self-proclaimed “Golden Misfits.”

Vegas enters Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final with the Washington Capitals on Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena trailing the best-of-seven series 3-1 and will need to win three games in a row to hoist hockey’s most coveted piece of silverware.

But Vegas, which has already put together two five-game win streaks in the playoffs, has thrived in the underdog role in its debut season.

“It shows that you can do it,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. “We’ve done it against good hockey teams. Play our game, you get some breaks, and you keep working hard and hopefully it turns for us.”

“A lot of people didn’t think we would win that many games this year or make it to the playoffs, and we find ourselves here,” forward James Neal said after practice on Wednesday. “So I think for sure we have the ability to prove people wrong. We’ve done that all year.”

The Golden Knights have lost three in a row to Alex Ovechkin and company, including an ugly 6-2 loss on Monday night at Capital One Arena. Vegas has never lost four games in a row in its brief history.

“I think we have great character in this room and we’ve shown it all season long,” Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. “We’ll be ready for Game 5.”

Vegas is 7-2 on its home ice during the playoffs but lost 3-2 on May 30 in its last game there. That contest featured a remarkable game-saving, diving stick save by Washington goalie Braden Holtby on Alex Tuch in front of a wide-open net that ranks as the turning point of the series so far.

Washington is 9-3 on the road in the playoffs, just one off the NHL record of 10 road wins accomplished four times, most recently by the Los Angeles Kings in 2012. Over 70,000 people tried to get tickets to attend a Game 5 watch party at Capital One Arena with the hopes that they’ll see the Capitals clinch their first Stanley Cup.

“It feels nice but it’s not over yet Josh Jackson Jersey ,” Ovechkin, who has 14 goals and 12 assists in the playoffs, said of needing just one more victory to win the Stanley Cup. “I don’t think it’s pressure on us. I think it’s pressure on both teams the same way. We just have to manage it. We have to concentrate, and we have to play our best to get it done.”

Washington coach Barry Trotz agreed.

“You just focus on the next game,” he said. “I can’t tell you what’s going to happen (Thursday night) but I can tell you that you’re going to need your best game if you want to get it done.”

Neal made it clear the Golden Knights still believe that they can win the series.

“We know we haven’t played our game (in) the first four games,” Neal said. “We have a lot more to give for sure. We’ve got to take it one game at a time. We can’t win all three games in Game 5. We’ve got to come out strong, take it period by period, and just focus on it one minute at a time.”

The Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles used the NFL draft to add another playmaker, restock their depth chart and get a rugby star.

After using their only pick in the first two days to select South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert with the 52nd overall spot, the Eagles turned to defense in the fourth round Saturday. They took Pitt cornerback Avonte Maddox and Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat five picks apart. TCU offensive lineman Matt Pryor was picked in the sixth round and Philadelphia moved up 17 spots to draft Australian rugby player Jordan Mailata with No. 233.

Then the Eagles re-signed veteran running back and return specialist Darren Sproles, who tore an ACL and broke his forearm on the same play in Week 3 last season.

”Everybody in the building is excited to have Darren back,” said Howie Roseman, the Eagles executive vice president of football operations. ”He’s that kind of guy.”

Mailata, 6-foot-7 Anthony Miller Bears Jersey , 346 pounds, is projected as an offensive tackle. He began to pursue a career in the NFL last year and trained in Florida the past few months.

”I knew if I made the decision, I’d be all in,” said Mailata, who looks dominant running with the ball and knocking tacklers over in highlight videos. ”Walking away from something I know very well to do something foreign was a big risk.”

Maddox, chosen Saturday at No. 125, played four seasons in college. Despite his size – 5-foot-9 and 184 pounds – Maddox is known for his tough, physical play. He had seven sacks along with eight interceptions over the past three years.

”This is a guy that fits in with our DB room,” said Joe Douglas, the Eagles vice president of player personnel. ”It’s a group of highly competitive guys, and he’s going to blend in perfectly, and even stand out to a degree. Even though he’s not the biggest guy, he will attack and support.”

Sweat, 6-foot-5 and 251 pounds Denzel Ward Jersey Youth , was picked at No. 130. He had 14 sacks in three seasons and gives the Eagles even more depth on a deep defensive line.

Pryor, 6-foot-7 and 338 pounds, started 21 games at right guard and six at right tackle in his final two seasons.

Here are some other things to know about the Eagles’ draft:

SET UP FOR 2019

The Eagles added Baltimore’s second-round pick next year by trading out of the first round, and sent a 2019 seventh-round pick to New England to move up 17 spots to get Mailata. They have eight picks in 2019 plus they’ll likely get compensatory picks for losing free agents Trey Burton and Beau Allen.

READY TO PLAY

Maddox will compete for the nickel cornerback spot. Patrick Robinson, who had a pick-6 in the NFC championship game, left in free agency. Maddox also will get a chance to contribute as a returner.

”It can be anything on special teams,” Maddox said. ”And if they need me to play in the slot, I’ll try to do my best there. And if they need me to play outside, I’ll do my best there. Anything that they need me to do, I’ll do it.”

VALUE PICK

Sweat would’ve gone earlier in the draft if it weren’t for medical concerns going back to a knee injury suffered in high school.

”He was much higher rated than where we got him,” Roseman said. ”We have a lot of trust in our medical staff. Dr. (Peter) DeLuca has done a great job for us for a long time. When he tells us that the guy’s ready to go, we rely on them and we trust that.”

Sweat only missed three games and sat out a bowl game last year to prepare for the draft.

”I think without the injury hopefully it would have been different,” he said. ”I wouldn’t say frustrating. It’s been more motivating if anything.”

OVERLOADED D-LINE

The addition of Sweat plus free agents Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata strengthens a line that already features Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham Joe Montana Jersey , Tim Jernigan, Chris Long and Derek Barnett.

”That’s what we call `rich man problems,”’ Roseman said. ”We’re excited about that. That’s how we’re going to build this. We’re always going to put priority on the lines. You can never have too many.”

MULTI-TALENTED

Goedert, who will team with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to give the Eagles another weapon at the position, rides a unicycle in parades in his hometown, Britton, South Dakota. He said the skill helps him on the field.

”It helps with the balance for sure,” Goedert said. ”If you get hit a little bit on the legs, you can torque your body to stay upright. So I think the balance definitely plays a big factor.”

STILL NEED

Not a lot considering they are champions. Maybe some help on the offensive line.
