The Capitals have won their first Stanley Cup championship, beating the Vegas Golden Knights in five games. Can the Knights survive to fight another day?

After 43 seasons, the Washington Capitals are finally sitting on top of hockey.

Kuznetsov game-time decision for Game 3 of Stanley Cup Final
The Washington Capitals keep winning, and now they are on the brink of securing their first Stanley Cup championship. With a league-leading 31 points, Kuznetsov is making a case to be the Conn Smythe Trophy victor as playoff MVP.


Using a quiet soundtrack that builds to a loud crescendo, the video captures the DC area and the Capitals game experience while using clips of the team's players and coaches from when they were young and showing how they've matured to now.

Entering the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Alex Ovechkin had a pair of glaring omissions in his trophy case.

The second period of Game 5 was absolutely incredible.

Lars Eller scored the Cup-clinching goal to make it 4-3 at 12:23 of the third period after Devante Smith-Pelly scored the game-tying goal at 9:52. It was a great play that gave Washington the lead with just shy of eight minutes left in the game.

A USA Today newsletter noted, " Melania is alive and 'feeling great, ' she, or perhaps her husband, says". Her prolonged absence sparked wild online speculation that she had been out of view for other reasons.


Ovechkin was nothing less than stellar during the Capitals' first-ever championship run. Vegas will push with everything they have and keep the game close, but the Capitals find a way like they have all postseason long to break through late and win it all. A possessed Ovechkin jumped of the bench and drew a tripping penalty on the very next shift and then hammered home a shot from his office on the power play. The Golden Knights tied it at 9:40 when Schmidt's shot deflected in off Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen's right skate. Marc-Andre Fluery has regressed at the worst possible time after bailing the Golden Knights out multiple times in the first three rounds.
