Has Alex Ovechkin ever won the Stanley Cup?

The Capitals have won their first Stanley Cup championship, beating the Vegas Golden Knights in five games.

Dig an 0-2 hole to open the postseason?

The Capitals are just one win away from capturing the franchise's first ever NHL Stanley Cup trophy.

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. And they aren't the only ones.

Washington's win was its 10th on the road in this postseason, tying the National Hockey League playoff record and illustrating the superior toughness of this team. Pencil in another multi-point game from him. Braden Holtby stopped 28 shots.

Reilly Smith led the Golden Knights with a power play goal, his fifth of the playoffs, and an assist.

But this year the Capitals turned that curse around by defeating the Pens in six games. With their backs against the wall, they will have to respond to adversity in a way they haven't done before.

It's not the first time the pair have taken the Metro to the arena for a game.

When Was the Last Washington, D.C. Sports Championship?
The Caps lead the best of seven series three games to one. "Obviously, this emotion is just unbelievable", Ovechkin said. The Vegas goaltender let it leak through his pads, and Eller was waiting behind him to score on the wide-open net.

The total has sat firmly at 5.5 throughout the series, and tonight is the same. The Golden Knights are 2-for-12 (16.7 per cent). Game 5 goes Thursday in Vegas. Fleury's average has risen by nearly half a goal during the last four games.

NOTES: The Knights made two lineup changes from Game 4, inserting Perron and William Carrier while scratching Ryan Reaves and Ryan Carpenter. Day and night difference for him and he has to be sharper in this game for them to have a chance. At The Disco pregame concert, the Golden Knights are a slight favorite in Game 5.

Washington forward Tom Wilson delivered two thunderous hits early in the game, including one on Karlsson that seemed to rattle the Knights centre.

Alexander Ovechkin is one of the greatest of all time now, and there are no more caveats. I'm so happy for team, for our organization. They simply can not fall behind in this game, or they will be outmuscled by Washington. VGK has a +2 handicap.

When Vegas blueliner Deryk Engelland missed a shot wide, Kuznetsov picked the puck off the boards and turned the play the other direction. They NEED to start off strongly or this game will be over quickly, and they'll be looking at handshakes tonight.

The Capitals have finally done it.

- This is a true toss-up in my mind.
