Washington Capitals Alex Ovechkin was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup playoffs on Thursday after leading his team to their first championship.

The Washington Capitals have never won a Stanley Cup Trophy in franchise history, but that can all change tonight with a victory at the Las Vegas Golden Knights. In his 13th season, the Great Eight finally got to hoist the Cup following Washington's 4-3 win over Vegas in Game 5 of the final in T-Mobile Arena.

Entering Game 5 of the Final, Holtby had a 2.13 goals against average and a.923 save percentage in the playoffs. The 26-year-old came up big in some pivotal games, including Ovechkin's 600th career goal in March against the Winnipeg Jets (a 3-2 overtime win) and a playoff dress rehearsal on April 1 against the Penguins (a 3-1 win).

For the first time in their 44-year history, the Washington Capitals are playing for a chance at the Stanley Cup. Years of breaking things down and trying again, breaking things down and trying again, and this group never gave up. "There's no side entrance that you can get into. But now you see that it takes an entire team to get this job done and that's what we did". At The Disco pregame concert, the Golden Knights are a slight favorite in Game 5. "There was just no expectation, no pressure from the outside on us".

Capital One Arena in downtown Washington, the Caps' home stadium, was full to the rafters and rocking for a free jumbotron viewing of the away game.

After blowing leads of 1-0 and 2-1, Devante Smith-Pelly scored the tying goal for the Caps and Lars Eller netted the game-winning marker with 7:37 remaining in one of the wildest Cup clinchers in recent memory.

Vegas has won four straight games after consecutive losses, and they are 8-3 total in their inaugural season in this situation. Then he popped the puck up and over goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. "What happened was obviously pretty negative", Smith-Pelly said.

While Cherry earlier in the interview said he was "in Ovi's corner", his criticism of Kuznetsov echoed similar sentiments Cherry shared about his countryman and teammate, Ovechkin, for celebrating after reaching the 50-goal mark during the 2009 season. "He has really brought a lot of players along, and they've played better than they've played anywhere else".

Grubauer got the nod to start the playoffs, a move many expected. They've dominated the stat in this series 68-25, and it's one of the reasons Vegas has only five goals in three games after scoring six in Game 1. If Vegas holds on, Game 6 in Washington will be Sunday night.

Among McPhee's other key acquisitions were former Nashville Predators forward James Neal, 30, who has had ten 20-goal seasons, and William Karlsson. The goal was Schmidt's first point of the series.

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. When the horn finally sounds, Ovechkin hopped off the bench in glee, joining his teammates in a huge pile of thrown sticks and helmets by the end boards. Eller battled for position near the crease and after Fleury stopped a shot from Brett Connolly, the puck fell right behind the netminder.

Maybe there was just too much goal scoring greatness engraved for Lord Stanley to handle at one time.
