After what can only be described as an absolute roller-coaster of a game, captain Alex Ovechkin skates across the ice to a tumultuous applause to raise the Stanley Cup for the first time ever.
The scene is set, the stakes have never been higher. Tonight, the Washington Capitals take on the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5. If the Capitals win, they take home the elusive Lord Stanley Cup. If they lose? The Golden Knights, live to fight another battle. It’s 3-1 in battles, but who will win the war?
When the season started in October, nobody of sound mind expected that in June the Vegas Golden Knights would be doing anything other than gearing for the NHL Draft while their players enjoyed their offseason.
In reality though, the Vegas Golden Knights have been superb in their first year in the NHL, but could see that season come to an end tonight as they trail the Washington Capitals 3 – 1 going into game five of the Stanley Cup final.
But no matter what happens tonight, the Golden Knights have had success beyond their wildest dreams.
