Capitals hoist first Stanley Cup in franchise history

Washington entered the third period in Las Vegas down 3-2, but a pair unanswered goals in the final period sealed the Cup. Las Vegas is 7-1 in its last eight games versus a team with a winning percentage above.600. Marc-Andre Fleury, meanwhile, had another so-so performance in allowing four goals on 33 shots.

The Washington Mystics played in Capital One Arena on Thursday, and the WNBA game against the Lynx turned into a watch party when it was over. The only thing standing in the way are those Vegas Golden Knights. Then immediately following that goal, a massive fight broke out.

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.

Moments later John Carlson blasted another slap shot, but Fleury shuffled and kicked it aside with his left leg pad to keep the game scoreless.

Argentina's next match will now be in Russian Federation as they open their World Cup campaign against Iceland on June 16 (2pm). The decision has now been taken to postpone the game, which would have been Argentina's last World Cup warm-up friendly.


The spectacular individual effort tied the game 3-3 with just over 10 minutes to play in the game. I'd be surprised if the Golden Knights don't make another deep postseason run in the next two or three years, maybe even next year.

Finally the Final, where Washington, which has blown more 3-1 leads than any team in National Hockey League history, took care of business in a raucous T-Mobile Arena instead of sending the series back home for a Game 6. They need a big first period.

But through four games of the Stanley Cup Final, the defensemen have let Fleury down.

But if you're the Capitals, you aren't thinking that far ahead. Vegas is +165 laying.5 goals in the opening period according to 5Dimes. Game 5 will be about momentum, who dictates the game, and a little bit of who gets luckier. "He's been great for us, so he's probably going to have his best game tonight". Smith scored his fifth goal of the playoffs, firing in a shot into a wide-open left side of the net off a crossing pass by Alex Tuch.
