Stanley Cup Finals 2018: Capitals vs

2018 Stanley Cup Final live scoring, stats: Capitals vs. Golden Knights, Game 5 Vegas Golden Knights Fan Gets Stanley Cup Tattoo Despite Team Being Down 3-1 (PIC)

There's nothing clever left to say. And the Capitals had to replace three top-six defensemen and two top-six forwards from last year's team-yet they marched all of the way to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1998. It doesn't do the accomplishment justice.

The Capitals won Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final 4-3 over the Vegas Golden Knights to win the series four games to one and earn the first Cup in the franchise's 43-year history.

The championship required a dramatic comeback, as Devante Smith-Pelly's third-period goal was the equalizer before Lars Eller scored the game-winner on a play that will forever be remembered in Washington sports lore.

A scoreless first period gave way to a wild second period with five goals, two ties and a lead change that temporarily put the Golden Knights ahead. Fleury stopped it, but the puck fell to the ice underneath him - and Eller fought off Luca Sbisa and slapped the stationary puck into the net for his seventh goal of the postseason. It was the kind of insane intense game the Stanley Cup Final deserved, and Washington Capitals center Lars Eller turned out to be the hero of the night. He should be available for Game 5 on Thursday night. Vegas will push with everything they have, but these Capitals are relentless.

Each goal came off a defensive-zone turnover by the Golden Knights.

Alex Ovechkin is a Stanley Cup champion at last - and he has another piece of hardware, too. The rest of the period ticked away from there, and Holtby made saves with both skate and stick in the final minute.

One of the benefits for athletes playing in major metropolitan areas is the existence of mass transit to get them to the games if they don't feel like making the drive to the arena.

- Going with Vegas on this one, just as I said in the other one. Vrana's shot hit the crossbar but lit the lamp.

Ovechkin didn't become a better player Thursday night.

Washington captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 15th goal of the post-season and was given the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP. Vegas is +165 laying.5 goals in the opening period according to 5Dimes. But it was in vain.

Reilly Smith, with a goal and an assist, Nate Schmidt and David Perron replied for Vegas. Three goals were scored in the span of less than four minutes after there wasn't a single puck that found the back of the net for almost 27 minutes of play.
