Washington Capitals Defeat Vegas Golden Knights To Win The Stanley Cup

Washington Capitals Win the Stanley Cup

Social media was abuzz with Capitals fans expressing their adulation for the Washington hockey team following their 3-1 win over the Golden Nights.

The crowd sat through a tense, scoreless first period before being thrown into a manic second one. The referees let the goal stand after reviewing the play.

In the final minute of the second period, Reilly Smith scored on a attractive Alex Tuch pass to put the Knights up 3-2. "I got my name on something so they'll know that dad played hockey when they grow up".

Alex Ovechkin is a Stanley Cup champion at last, and he has another piece of hardware too.

They played into June, this collection of Golden Misfits, something no one could have imagined for a team that barely had any players a year ago. They beat an expansion team in the Cup Finals in its inaugural season.

The game got off to a torrid pace following the usual top-quality introduction from the Vegas promotional team.

Washington struck first, almost seven minutes into the second period, when Czech forward Jakub Vrana scored on a breakaway with a wrist shot over Fleury's left elbow. Could the Capitals have taken control of this series had he not made "The Save" on Golden Knights' Alex Tuch late in Game 2? It was 1-1 half way through the second period. There was none. Washington was better in every phase over five games. "We were swimming in the pool and he told me one day we're going to win it.it was the first year. I didn't see many games, but what I saw, he played the best I saw him play the last 10 years, for sure". When that Stanley Cup emerges from that team plane in Washington, the party will be ON. He noted the turnaround seasons this year by Colorado and New Jersey.

The team holding aloft the Cup more than earned it.

The Snapdragon 850 is now official and later this year you can expect the first computers with it – likely laptops and 2-in-1s. The Snapdragon 850 also features an X20 LTE modem , which supports connectivity speeds of up to 1.2Gbps.

In the end, the 4-3 triumph over the Las Vegas Golden Knights in game five of the National Hockey League finale series was particularly sweet for Caps fans sadly used to seeing their team reach the playoffs fairly regularly, only to choke well before reaching the final round.

Controversy struck at the seven minute mark when Christian Djoos and David Perron were battling in front of Braden Holtby and Tomas Tatar put a puck through the traffic and into the net. Some Twitter users said he now has no choice but to invite the Capitals to the White House, since Ovechkin is not just any Russian, but a well-known supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin - who, according to the most ardent 'Russian meddling' theorists, is Trump's puppet master.

Washington and Vegas combined for just seven shots while landing a total of 19 hits in the early going. When he wasn't scoring one of his 15 goals, he was playing a committed defensive game, even dropping down to block shots.

With this being the first Stanley Cup in franchise history, no one can blame you for wanting to show it off.

Walker did not see ice time throughout the Finals series against Vegas, but maintained a spot on the Caps' depth chart for the finals, meaning he was present today in Las Vegas to lift the cup with the rest of his teammates. Washington has scored 16 goals in four games against the reeling Golden Knights, whose charmed expansion season has run short of magic in three consecutive losses.

The goaltender skated across the red line and toward the Washington superstar before retreating back to his side. "We knew we could do something special, and we did". Again, Vegas needs a winning performance from Fleury to have a chance tonight, and I'm expecting a score of 3-1 or 3-2 score in favor of Vegas.
