  • Washington Capitals Win the Stanley Cup

It was another thing entirely that a team from Las Vegas did it.

"I think it's going to be much bigger than everyone is expecting", Leonsis said on the ice after the Capitals beat the Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 in Game 5 to win the Stanley Cup.

Alex Ovechkin is a Stanley Cup champion at last, and he has another piece of hardware too.

Lars Eller scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:37 to play, and the Capitals raised the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history after a 4-3 victory against the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 on Thursday night.

"As a native Las Vegan, I'm thrilled to see Golden Knights hockey get as much attention as the 1990 UNLV basketball team got", Hawley said.

Why? Because this fan went out and got a tattoo celebrating the team winning the Cup this year. Entering this year's playoffs, the Capitals had fallen in nine of the previous 10 playoff series against the Penguins. "He did it all for us". "We were together. It was whole, one team". But for perhaps the first time, he received plenty of help from his teammates. Alex Ovechkin leads Washington with 14 goals, Evgeny Kuznetsov has 19 assists and Nicklas Backstrom has 34 shots on goal. Game 5 is Thursday night.

"I think there are a lot of similarities to what you read about people talking about you", Theodore said.

You know, the day you got married, or maybe the day your got divorced.

The White House announced May 14 that she had been hospitalized to treat a kidney condition described as benign. However, Trump's absence from public view would extend for several more days.

David Perron, who had been a healthy scratch for Game 4, scored his first of the playoffs on a play where he was shoved into Washington's Braden Holtby.

"It doesn't come easy", Holtby said. After years of heartbreak and frustration, the Washington captain has done it. "We've done that all year".

Trailing 3-2 entering the final stanza of Game 5, the Caps erased the deficit thanks to a game-tying goal from Devante Smith-Pelly and a victor from Lars Eller.

Less than three minutes later, a point shot from Brett Connolly found its way through Fleury's pads and Eller swept the puck in the net.

Eller's parents, his brother and his wife, Julie, would join him on the T-Mobile Arena ice, Julie jumping up into his arms for a long, wordless hug. The total has also gone under in seven of the Golden Knights' last seven games against Eastern Conference teams. He started the opportunity on a strong forecheck that created a turnover in the right corner, then wheeled to the front of the net and - as he was falling down - wrapped a deflected puck around an outstretched Fleury.

The "Little V" Jakub Vrana got the Caps on the board, Ovie scored from his spot - where else? - to give Washington a 2-1 lead in the second period. Vegas is +165 laying.5 goals in the opening period according to 5Dimes.

- Their defense has been awful this series, allowing three or more goals in each of the first four games. Ten of Ovechkin's goals came on the road. The vaunted goal-scorer can also succeed where a generation of Washington athletes have fallen short by leading the Capitals to their first title and the city's first major pro sports championship in a quarter-century.
