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.
