The fix is in.
Apparently the Golden Knights read ahead in the script and know how game 4 is going to go tonight. They decided it was a good idea to take this insider info and post it onto their Instagram story.
Whoops. I understand having confidence in your team but this is extremely bold. The Golden Knights have struggled to find a way to get pucks past Braden Holtby, so to assume they will win Game 4 is a bit of a leap.
Thankfully, their instagram story was updated shortly thereafter with the right info.

The Knights have met a team which plays a very similar style to their own. The Capitals are very much a counter attack team, so when they get the lead they like to stifle the Knights and wait for a mistake rather than continue to push the pace offensively.

The goaltending has been very good with each goalie making key saves, but Holtby is clearly outplaying Fleury right now. He has been on another level ever since he stepped in for Grubauer in Game 3 against the Blue Jackets early this postseason.
If history is any indication, the Vegas Golden Knights face a must-win Game 4 Monday.

Game 4 is pretty much a must win game for the Knights. Although if any team in recent memory could come back from being down 3-1, it is the Golden Knights.
