Capitals beat Golden Knights 4-3 to win Stanley Cup

Or will it be a coronation for Alex Ovechkin and the Comeback Caps?

The Washington Capitals have an opportunity to raise the Stanley Cup for the very first time in team history if they can defeat the Vegas Golden Knights tonight in Game Five. In the Stanley Cup Final the Capitals scored in every third period but one and that was a Game 2 victory. Entering this year's playoffs, the Capitals had fallen in nine of the previous 10 playoff series against the Penguins.

The Caps couldn't win a title without a little weirdness, however: The game clock stopped working on the T-Mobile Arena scoreboards during the final minutes, and the Capitals angrily protested while they played on. They didn't stop there.

The Capitals' first championship is the city's first in one of the country's big four professional sports leagues since the NFL's Redskins won the Super Bowl in 1992.

This is the song the Capitals play after the intro video when they come out onto the ice.

Tuch and Brayden McNabb both lined shots off the post after Neal, who scored with just under 16 minutes left to make it 4-1. Teams with a 3-1 advantage in the Cup final have won 31 consecutive series and are 32-1 all-time since 1939.

Why? Because this fan went out and got a tattoo celebrating the team winning the Cup this year.

This team might be in their first season, but they do not want their season to end.

Washington scored at least one goal in the third period in nine of their final 11 postseason games.

Eller bought a PlayStation prior to this series to keep his mind off the other potential distractions on the Vegas Strip and became the first Dane in history to win the Stanley Cup.

Ovechkin and his friends had other ideas.
