Washington Capitals win first ever Stanley Cup

"You should be a role model", Cherry said at the time. But it is the face he made when roaring with the Cup overhead that will be remembered for all-time.

In the after-game delirium, fans screamed as they hugged each other in gridlocked streets and drivers honked their horns all over the city, as far away as the K Street corridor of lobbyist power not far from the White House. "We're the Stanley Cup champions". But the most important number was zero, as in the number of times they advanced beyond the second round.

"Everything in Canada, we act like no other sport. and (Kuznetsov) - Is that his name? - whatever", Cherry said, pronouncing his name "Kuzeesov". We'll talk. I'm not anxious, one way or the other. They had a lot of good reasons to go wild.

And the remarkable Golden Knights hadn't lost four consecutive games in their entire inaugural season before the Caps rolled them. Despite a fairytale season that ended just three wins short of the ultimate prize, Vegas' loss was crushing to the players who put so much into the year.

Few believe the Golden Knights can do it, and it nearly feels like October all over again, when most predicted the team would serve as the NHL's doormat. I was personally very low on him this season since he gave up over three goals per game, but has looked elite in the playoffs.

David Perron, who had been a healthy scratch for Game 4, scored his first of the playoffs on a play where he was shoved into Washington's Braden Holtby.

It won't be easy.

Jordan's king appoints economist to form new government, calls for tax dialogue
Fuel prices have risen five times since the start of the year, while electricity bills have surged by 55 per cent since February. Jordan was rocked by unrest in 2012 when the International Monetary Fund told the government to lift gasoline prices.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull reportedly phoned Walker not long after Washington secured the victory to congratulate Walker on the feat. Washington has completely neutralized the Golden Knights' transition game, forcing them to dump the puck into the zone rather than carry it across the blue line with speed. "This is one of his better years that he's played overall", said Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan. The Nashville Predators, Winnipeg Jets and even the surprising Vegas Golden Knights were the sexy picks out of the Western Conference, while some backed the Penguins for a three-peat or even the Tampa Bay Lightning.

- This is a tough one, but I'm guessing both teams won't want to take the first penalty, and we'll see a faster and cleaner first period to see how the offenses shake out. "Last game was definitely a step in the right direction to how we can play". The Golden Knights are 35-13 in their last 48 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 Thursday games and 13-6 in their last 19 overall. Three different Capitals players scored in the first period - T.J.

The Capitals franchise has the dubious distinction of having lost five playoff series after leading 3-1, which is an National Hockey League record.

"I think the history of the organization is definitely an important thing, but we're focused on this group", Washington's Tom Wilson said.

If the Golden Knights can keep the game at even strength, they have shown they can outplay Washington.

The Vegas Golden Knights did things right straight from the off, with owner Bill Foley hiring former Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee all the way back in 2016.

"I can't explain how I feel", Ovechkin said on the ice after the game.
