Caps on cusp of Cup after Washington takes 3-1 series lead in Stanley Cup Final

Washington entered the third period in Las Vegas down 3-2, but a pair unanswered goals in the final period sealed the Cup.

- After taking the Metro to get to Capital One Arena for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, Washington Capitals' players T.J. Oshie and Matt Niskanan took the same route for Game 4.

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.

Eller was quickest to a loose puck sitting behind Marc-Andre Fleury after Brett Connolly's initial shot went off Knights defenceman Colin Miller and squeezed through the Vegas goalie for his seventh goal of the playoffs. The Caps were tied for the fifth-longest active Cup drought with Philadelphia, which won it in 1974. It was his 15th goal of the playoffs, passing John Druce for most in a single postseason in Washington history (1990).

Evgeny Kuznetsov, the NHL's leading scorer in the postseason (31 points), is coming off a four-assist night and has seven points (goal, six assists) in the Final.




"Obviously, this emotion is just unbelievable", Ovechkin said. The Capitals challenged, claiming interference, but the goal stands.

Washington forward Tom Wilson delivered two thunderous hits early in the game, including one on Karlsson that seemed to rattle the Knights centre. For the fourth straight playoff series, the Capitals won the clinching game on the road.

Alexander Ovechkin is one of the greatest of all time now, and there are no more caveats.

If Vegas wins and avoids elimination, the Capitals will host Game 6 on Sunday.
