The Capitals have finally done it.
With the potential for the Washington Capitals to win the Stanley Cup in Las Vegas on Thursday night, the team had an idea: Give away passes so fans could sit inside Capital One Arena during game time and experience a similar thrill among their own kind.
The public address announcer inside T-Mobile Arena wasn't even done announcing that goal before Ovechkin drew a tripping penalty and then scored on a one-time snapshot from the bottom of the left faceoff circle off a pinpoint feed from Nicklas Backstrom to make it 2-1 just 34 second later.
Reilly Smith, David Perron and Nate Schmidt scored, and Marc-Andre Fleury made 29 saves for the Golden Knights, who lost four in a row after winning Game 1.

The decision amounted to a death sentence to ZTE, which relies on US parts and which announced that it was halting operations. Ross, speaking on CNBC today, said that a compliance team picked by the USA will be embedded at ZTE.
That blemish is now gone and he is a big reason why.
Free tickets for the Game 5 viewing party inside Capital One Arena went online at 1 p.m. Wednesday. It was his 15th goal of the playoffs, passing John Druce for most in a single postseason in Washington history (1990).
This team might be in their first season, but they do not want their season to end. 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. The Capitals took firm control of the series after taking both games on home ice, but Vegas can claw their way back with a win on home ice. In the Stanley Cup Final the Capitals scored in every third period but one and that was a Game 2 victory. The team scored in the third period or overtime in 20 of 24 games in the playoffs.
