Watch: James Neal somehow fails to score on wide open net
James Neal is going to be kicking himself for a while over his missed opportunity in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night.
The Vegas Golden Knights winger missed a shot on a wide open net in the first period against the Washington Capitals.

The game was scoreless at the time, so a goal would have put Vegas in the lead and given them some momentum. Instead, Washington scored a few minutes later to take the lead and then pushed their lead to 3-0.
The Capitals entered Game 4 leading the series 2-1.
