Champion Caps Shake Washington D.C.

Washington Capitals Hoist First Stanley Cup After Dramatic Win Over Vegas

But the Capitals, who lost the first two games of their first-round series against Columbus and needed double overtime to win the third, on Thursday completed a journey that was nearly as incredible, rallying in the third period for a 4-3 victory that ended the Cup Final in five games. "I love it. 22 years living and I've never felt this good".

"These guys are my brothers", forward T.J. Oshie said. I knew he wants it so bad and this organization wants it so bad.

But if storybook endings never really appear and they're just someone's way of leading us to a conclusion, a room full of players not wanted by their previous teams directed Las Vegas on the most fantastic of voyages before it ended with another team celebrating. "We just won it". We worked so hard through all the years and we were together. If you start thinking that we have to win three games, sometimes it gets demoralizing.

They had to revamp the roster last season because of salary cap concerns, and general manager Brian MacLellan wasn't sure what he had after he added some grit here and there and had to trust young players.

- Their power-play is 2 for 12 in this series, a trend which continues from the prior series where they were 2 for 11. "We are Stanley Cup champions". And then he raised the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Final.

It was the first championship for a professional D.C. -based team in 26 years when the Washington Redskins won the Super Bowl.

"We got angry and mean", Washington coach Barry Trotz said. "I think this moment we were waiting a long, long time". Instead, the seemingly charmed Golden Knights struggled against the rugged Capitals. Washington challenged the play, but it was ruled that Capitals defenceman Christian Djoos had initiated the contact with Perron. When the 33-year-old executive asked for a three-year contract, Pollin agreed but only after telling Poile he'd better do well in the first season or the franchise might fold.

- Yes. I firmly believe Vegas will come out strongly to get the ice tilted in their favor. They got a barn-burner of a finale befitting this thrilling series, with wild shifts of momentum before that freakish clock incident that didn't appear to affect the outcome.

Nate Schmidt and David Perron also scored in the second period, but Fleury's 29 saves included a stopped puck that dropped underneath him where Eller swept it home for the Cup-winning goal.

After a scoreless first period in Game 5, things got wild as both teams traded goals and lead changes in a second period where every shot seemed to find the back of the net.

Ovechkin wanted to see Devante Smith-Pelly next.

Lars Eller's rebound goal with 7:37 remaining broke a tie and proved to be the championship-winning tally.

It was truth, not fiction.

After a tight first period the game opened up in the second as the two teams combined for five goals over a frenetic stretch of end-to-end action that saw Vegas twice erase one-goal deficits before pulling ahead 3-2. "We're focused on this year, and obviously once all is said and done or whatever happens, you can look back on it". "I would never have thought this is how the season would end".

The Capitals won their 10th game on the road in the postseason to equal the league record which had been set four times previously, most recently by the 2012 Los Angeles Kings.
