Washington Capitals Hoist First Stanley Cup After Dramatic Win Over Vegas

Caps on cusp of Cup after Washington takes 3-1 series lead in Stanley Cup Final Metro makes promise of commemorative SmarTrip card if Caps bring home Stanley Cup

Oshie scored in the first period during Monday night's game and Caps defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 6-2.

The Capitals win also stops short the Las Vegas' stunning run to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Golden Knights' ascent began about a year ago, when they selected one player from each team in the National Hockey League expansion draft.

That blemish is now gone and he is a big reason why. Ovechkin scored a goal in the game that gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead. It was his 15th goal of the playoffs, passing John Druce for most in a single postseason in Washington history (1990).

Hirono, Deutch Renew Effort to Strengthen and Expand Social Security
The Social Security program will pass an ugly milestone this year, as its costs exceed its income, according to its trustees. The OASI trust fund is now expected to be depleted in late 2034 compared to last year's estimate of early 2035.

Ovechkin can finally get the respect he deserves with this win. Game 5 will be about momentum, who dictates the game, and a little bit of who gets luckier. Alex Ovechkin has led the team on and off the ice, they've rallied around him and bonded as a group. Three goals were scored in the span of less than four minutes after there wasn't a single puck that found the back of the net for almost 27 minutes of play. Then immediately following that goal, a massive fight broke out.

One of Metro's faithful riders may end up with a commemorative SmarTrip card - if he brings home the Stanley Cup.

- As Washington Capitals players T.J. Oshie and Matt Niskanan have made the Metro their choice of transportation for getting to Capital One Arena for Stanley Cup games, Metro is now giving a nod to the Caps' star forward.

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