The Las Vegas Golden Knights [VIDEO]are the feel-good story in sports this season -- but the Washington Capitals couldn't care less. The Knights' storybook inaugural season is in a bit of jeopardy heading into Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals [VIDEO] as they are facing what many NHL experts believe is a game they need to walk away from as the victors.

Must-win Game 4?

Falling behind 3-1 in a best-of-seven series is never a good thing, but the Golden Knights are already playing with house money, and a win tonight would once again tilt the scales back in their favor. According to a CBS Sports report, the LVGK currently trail the Washington Capitals 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Finals, and they are in serious need of finding a way to solve the Capitals' defense in Game 4 Monday night.

Is it the Caps' defense, or are the Knights running out of steam right before the finish line? The Game 3 loss was the first time in the postseason that Vegas suffered consecutive losses. They also were held to just 22 shots on goal, their second-lowest total during this incredible playoff run. Add to that the fact that the Knights have lit the lamp just three times in the last two games, and there has to be a bit of concern running down Las Vegas Blvd.

Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen told NHL.com that he believes Washington’s success can be attributed to cutting off the neutral zone, and staying on top of players up and down the ice -- even if they are nowhere near the puck.

"So if you can be on top of them, turn over some pucks, stifle them, make it hard for them to gain entry with possession, that frustrates skilled players," Niskanen said.

If the Caps can win Game 4, it will be a long road back for the Golden Knights, but when it comes to this Vegas team, you just can’t count them out.
