Alex Ovechkin of Washington Capitals wins Conn Smythe Trophy as playoffs MVP

Vegas Golden Knights Fan Gets Stanley Cup Tattoo Despite Team Being Down 3-1 (PIC)

The biggest windfall at the draft came in the form of first-string netminder Fleury, 33, a three-time Stanley Cup victor who the Pittsburgh Penguins may have thought was washed up.

"In between the second and third we had the same feeling in our locker room, no-one was panicking and everyone was confident", said Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby. You have to face this thing head on.

Forty-four years and 3,701 games worth of heartbreak crumpled under the weight of 34.5 pounds of silver as Ovechkin lifted Lord Stanley's chalice.

If the Washington Capitals win one more game against the Vegas Golden Knights, they'll clinch the series, and Kuznetsov could be in line to win the Conn Smythe.

Former Florida Panther Jonathan Marchessault has also posted the best numbers of his National Hockey League career, with 75 points in the regular season (27 goals, 48 assists) and 20 in just 19 playoff games.

After losing Game 1, the Capitals won four straight to win the Cup, outscoring the Golden Knights 16-8 along the way.

Unafraid of the impending closing of the subway, Capitals fans partied in the streets Thursday night and into Friday morning to celebrate the franchise's first Stanley Cup and the city's first title in the major four professional sports since 1992. It was hard to imagine this was the same place where a "Save the Caps" campaign happened in 1982 to keep NHL hockey in America's capital.

"I said to Brian there's no reason that I don't want to be there", Trotz said on the ice.

Draymond Green doesn't sound too keen on LeBron James joining Warriors
CLEVELAND , Ohio - On a night when most of the Golden State Warriors didn't have it, Kevin Durant went on an offensive explosion. Chris Bosh believes LeBron James will turn the Houston Rockets into the NBA's next superteam this offseason.

The desire to do everything possible to win was evident in every Ovechkin shift this postseason.

How great will the party be at Ovechkin's hotel room in Vegas tonight?

"You still have to win the four games right? They're all connected. And that's really, really important". Ovechkin scored a goal in the second period in Thursday night's Game 5, giving the Capitals a 2-1 lead. And the Capitals, victimized by so many agonizing comebacks in playoff series over the years, finally got to the top of the hockey world with a clutch comeback of their own.

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. The Capitals are a +125 underdog, while the over-under is set at 5.5 goals. There is no doubt that the Capitals are playing with house money at this point, a three-game lead, and one more shot to win at home. Ten of Ovechkin's goals came on the road. Everyone can now agree though that both Ovechkin and Crosby are two of the best ever - and both are winners. "Gave us something to work with, and gave this team an opportunity to be a good team". After three Presidents' Trophies in the last eight seasons, the window appeared to be closing.

- Going with Vegas on this one, just as I said in the other one.

Washington said goodbye to Kevin Shattenkirk, Karl Alzner, Mr. They did. All of them, together.

And of course, there was a little drama before the Capitals' agonizing wait to hoist the trophy could come to an end: The game clock stopped working on the T-Mobile Arena scoreboards during the final minutes, and the Capitals angrily protested while they played on.
