Grab a tissue, and watch T.J. Oshie's emotional Stanley Cup interview

Alex Ovechkin exhales as he’s surrounded by his teammates after defeating the Penguins in Round 2

Another is finally realized. So how did they put together a team good enough to finish fifth in the overall standings during the regular season, and make it to the finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs?

"Look at the atmosphere tonight", Eller said, Capitals fans chanting and singing in the stands a half-hour after the final siren.

Alex Ovechkin can breathe easy.

"When your captain is doing everything it takes, guys follow the leader". He's answered his critics, who said he lacked heart and the leadership skills to win it all.

"A lot of people didn't think we would win that many games this year or make it to the playoffs, and we find ourselves here", forward James Neal said after practice on Wednesday. "It was a hard, long season". "But we believed in each other all year".

"Her being a soccer player, she would kick a girl in the shin with one second left in the championship game if that's what it took", Hawley said Wednesday.

Ovechkin restored Washington's lead 34 seconds later when he one-timed a cross-ice pass from Nicklas Backstrom over Fleury's right leg for his franchise-record 15th goal of the playoffs.

"You just focus on the next game", he said. "You never want it to end like this". "A very well-deserved Conn Smythe - not only for his goals but for his leadership". The Golden Knights were 10-0 in this postseason when leading after two periods, but the Capitals overcame that number too. No one expected Vegas to get this far.

The Las Vegas Golden Knights are priced at -140 to take Game 5, with the Capitals valued at +137 according to OddsShark.com.

"It's just a relief, man", longtime Capitals fan Arash Tafakor said amid the celebration. "It's something I can't explain how I feel".

The Capitals went into the third trailing 3-2 and went ahead after Devante Smith-Pelly and Eller scored 2:31 apart midway through the pivotal period.

Washington Capitals forward T.J.

Less than a year ago the Golden Knights had both a general manager and a coach - but nearly no players. The day your first child was born, or maybe the day they finally moved out of the house. You see him in the playoffs this year, he's our best player - blocking shots, playing good in the D-zone, playing good in the neutral zone. "Get some beers. Start celebrating".

Shortly after Jakub Vrana scored the opening goal of Game 5 on a breakaway early in the second, Schmidt tied it when his fling toward the net deflected off a stick and again off Caps defenseman Matt Niskanen's skate.

This time, the other 30 teams were only allowed to protect seven forwards, three defensemen and one goalie, or eight skaters and one goalie.

The goals kept coming - and from unlikely sources. All those titles fit in ways we couldn't have imagined when the Vegas Golden Knights opened in October as the city's first major-league team. And as both teams entered the third period, it seemed like this might be heading back to Washington for Game 6.

"This is incredible. I mean, I've grown up being disappointed and yet I still come back".

It was looking like the Golden Knights would extend the series until midway through the third period, when Devante Smith-Pelly scored a attractive goal on a quick skate-to-stick play.

Less than three minutes later, a point shot from Brett Connolly found its way through Fleury's pads and Eller swept the puck in the net. This is their first 3-1 lead at any point in this year's postseason, and any amount of success from Vegas is sure to inspire just the slightest bit of doubt.
