Raw: DC Celebrates as Capitals Win Stanley Cup

WinView Games Playbook: Capitals vs. Golden Knights - June 7

Inspirational. An example of the power of unity.

All five goals have come in the current period.

"I love these guys".

Winger T.J. Oshie was struggling to keep his emotions in check after discussing in multiple interviews that his father, Tom, is suffering form Alzheimer's and has memory loss. I knew he wants it so bad and this organization wants it so bad.

They had just scored two goals in seven minutes, the first being what felt like the umpteenth time of the playoffs that they answered an opponent's score immediately. "Even after the third period, we knew we just had to push it and get the result". "But we believed in each other all year. It was a tough time, but we fight through it and we get results". "People are going to talk about it, but I don't think it's the biggest thing for me". They got clutch goaltending from Brayden Holtby, including his miracluous paddle save off Alex Tuch in Game 2 that seems to be the turning point of the series when viewed in the rear-view mirror. Coach Barry Trotz recalled meeting with captain Alex Ovechkin in Columbus and despite the evidence, both insisted they had no doubts they'd triumph.

Besides the Redskins, the Washington Nationals and Washington Wizards have also come up short in their quest to win a championship in recent years.

A Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe for Alex Ovechkin.

"They've had all these really good teams, all of these opportunities that appeared that this could be the year that they could win playoff rounds and compete for the Cup or win the Stanley Cup".

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering fast, unbiased news from every corner of the world to all media platforms and formats. "I don't think it's pressure on us". Since then, the Golden Knights have helped the Hawleys during their grieving process.

Livingston, McGee giving Warriors big lift in finals vs Cavs
But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot. And it was great because the victory put the Warriors up 3-0 and on the cusp of their second straight title.


So much so, he wasn't sure who was going to be named MVP of the Final.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull reportedly phoned Walker not long after Washington secured the victory to congratulate Walker on the feat. When the 33-year-old executive asked for a three-year contract, Pollin agreed but only after telling Poile he'd better do well in the first season or the franchise might fold. The Stanley Cup. The Caps have been trying to get their hands on it since 1974 and Ovechkin had failed to touch it since coming from Russian Federation in 2005.

The Capitals had an especially rough history leading into this spring's triumph after joining the league in 1974-75. They got a barn-burner of a finale befitting this thrilling series, with wild shifts of momentum before that weird clock incident that didn't appear to affect the outcome much.

Nate Schmidt and David Perron also scored for Vegas in the second period, but Fleury's 29 saves included a stopped puck that dropped underneath him where Eller could sweep it home for the Cup-winning goal. But after Perron tied it with a deflection goal while falling into Holtby's net, Smith scored into an open net after Ovechkin went to the penalty box for tripping. Eller, Ovechkin, Smith-Pelly and more in Scott Cullen's Statistically Speaking.

"It means everything, you couldn't write the story better".

It was truth, not fiction. They defeated Ovechkin's nemesis, Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins, next and upset the Tampa Bay Lightning in a hard-fought seven-game East final after blowing a 2-0 series lead.

"We couldn't sell tickets", said Irene Pollin, now 93. "I'm so happy. I'm so happy for my teammates, for our fans back in Washington, my parents, my family, all my friends.it's just unbelievable".

They are champions, at last.

"To have him here is incredible", Oshie said of his father.
