Eller outmuscled Vegas defender Luca Sbisa for the puck, which was sacked at the net by Brett Connolly and squirted through the pads of Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury before it stopped on the edge of the crease.

And the remarkable Golden Knights hadn't lost four consecutive games in their entire inaugural season before the Caps rolled them.

Washington's Cup-clinching win was its 10th on the road in this postseason, tying the National Hockey League playoff record and illustrating the superior toughness of this team.

After decades of heartbreak, the Washington Capitals have finally reached the top. "We won, and it doesn't matter how we played or what happened before". "We've overcome a lot of adversity, and this is just another task".

But Ovechkin was always going to be the Conn Smythe victor in the event the Capitals ended their Stanley Cup drought.

Ovechkin scored 27 points (15 goals, 12 assists) in 24 games during the 2018 playoffs.

Lars Eller scored the go-ahead goal for Washington with 7:37 remaining. Braden Holtby turned away 28 of 30 shots to notch the win.

Three thoughts on the womens' semis at Roland Garros
Halep, who assured herself of retaining the No. 1 ranking with the victory, earned a fourth chance to win her first major title. Muguruza had lost all three previous times she faced Sharapova, whose five grand slam titles include two at Roland Garros .

According to oddsmakers, the Golden Knights are a -145 favorite on the moneyline.

The expansion Golden Knights ended their surprise season with the first four-game losing streak in franchise history.

Then after the Caps took a 2-1 lead, Vegas responded with two late goals including one in the final minute from Reilly Smith.

Vegas had a slight edge in the number of chances, with a couple of bouncing pucks in and around Holtby's crease, but Washington came closest to scoring when Ovechkin ripped a one timer off the post that stayed out on a power play from his patented spot near the left faceoff dot.

Miller was hurt when he was checked by Washington's T.J.

Near the end of the second, William Karlsson received a pass and was wide open in the Vegas offensive zone, and Ovechkin tripped him to prevent a goal. Nicklas Backstrom hit Ovechkin just in front of his usual left-circle spot for a one-timer to make it 2-1. That set the stage for Eller's game-winner.
