FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) The sour taste in the aftermath of their Stanley Cup Final Game 3 loss is gone for the Vegas Golden Knights, who quickly moved on to enjoying the nearby ocean breeze.

They're breathing easily up 2-1 on the Florida Panthers in the series, knowing fully they've been the better team so far. Taking a day away off the ice and away from the rink but not too far away from hockey on this big a stage the Golden Knights are calm, cool and confident going into Game 4 Saturday night with another chance to move toward hoisting the Cup.

Were not going to change a lot. We dont need to, coach Bruce Cassidy said from his team's beachfront hotel Friday morning. Were not going to beat ourselves up over (Game 3). Were going to do what weve always done. Were going to work to get better and keep growing our game and hopefully be better.

The Golden Knights have only lost consecutive games once on this playoff run, when they were up 3-0 on Dallas in the Western Conference final. What followed was their best performance of the entire season.
