After decades of disappointment, the Washington Capitals simply wouldn't be denied.

The Washington Capitals have defeated the Vegas Golden Knights, 4-3, to win the franchise's first ever Stanley Cup. It was his 15th goal of the playoffs, passing John Druce for most in a single postseason in Washington history (1990).

We'll keep that part simple, but give the win more justice with three takeaways from the Caps' historic win. He is one of the best scorers ever, but never quite got the respect he deserved because of that one blemish on his resume. Their Stanley Cup Final run has given D.C. its closest chance in a long time, and they're perhaps just one win away from ending the drought.

Turkey failed to clear the qualifying stage to play in the much-anticipated quadrennial worldwide football event. So what teams qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup? Uruguay held the first games and won the title.


That's what it took to finally end this miracle expansion season in 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. Washington was led by Alex Ovechkin, who in March became the 20th player in National Hockey League history to score 600 goals and just the fourth to reach that number in fewer than 1,000 games. 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. There truly is nothing better than the Stanley Cup Final. Top-line center William Karlsson, who did not practice on Wednesday, has been struggling, with only five recorded shots in four games during the Stanley Cup final and only three points in Vegas' last seven games, well below his averages for the full season.

The Capitals went to the power play later in the period, but Fleury was there to stone Ovechkin on a one-timer before Smith Pelly evened things.
