Down 3-1 in Stanley Cup Final, history's not on Golden Knights' side
The Golden Knights are now the 34th team in NHL history to fall behind 3-1 in the Cup Final, and in the 33 previous instances, only once has a team come back to win it all.
If there is any reason for the Golden Knights to be optimistic, it is Washington's record when leading a series 3-1, where they are just 7-5. To put that into perspective, the rest of the NHL have a combined record of 269-23 in those instances.
The Golden Knights' daunting task of prolonging the series starts when they return home for Game 5 on Thursday.
