Golden Knights betting favorites for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final

The Capitals clinched their first Stanley Cup in franchise history on Thursday night, and Washington D.C. absolutely erupted once the clock hit zero.

With the Stanley Cup in the building at T-Mobile Arena on Thursday, a two-time Cup victor took in the game as well.

Metro said on Twitter Tuesday, following a victorious fourth game in DC Monday night they will make a commemorative SmarTrip card for Oshie - if he brings home the Stanley Cup!

- The Golden Knights have lost three games in a row for the first time since February 26th - March 2nd. The Capitals challenged, claiming interference, but the goal stands.

IT's been a long time coming for Ovechkin, who is now able to celebrate his first championship in his 13th National Hockey League season and, just for good measure, was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

LeBron's Game 3 dunk sets social media on fire
The Warriors' offense came too easy, a symptom of slow switches and only mediocre closeouts on Golden State shooters. Curry and Thompson can slog through arguably the worst Finals games of their careers, and it won't matter.

For Putin, World Cup shows Russia cannot be caged by hostile West
According to Van der Bellen, Russia forms part of Europe, and it is impossible to resolve worldwide issues without it. The Russian president also met Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz who spoke of the need for dialogue with Russia.

Eight other people were treated at a small hospital in Kemptville, and all were in stable condition, officials said. Emergency crews arrived on the scene to find the bus in a ditch alongside the highway, she said.

That's what it took to finally end this miracle expansion season in Vegas. Then immediately following that goal, a massive fight broke out.

Perron battled with Washington's Christian Djoos in the crease moments later and eventually ended up inside Holtby's net while Tomas Tatar's shot glanced off him and in.

At that point it looked like Phil Pritchard wouldn't be taking the Stanley Cup out of its case. But Vegas played really well in Game 4, and in some non-scoring aspects deserved to win that game.

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. He gave up six goals in Game 4 of this series. Now, he doesn't have to carry the burden of being the best player never to win a title.

Vegas will be motivated for Game 5 with their season on the line, but the Capitals are just as motivated with the Stanley Cup right there in sight. The Caps were tied for the fifth-longest active Cup drought with Philadelphia, which won it in 1974.
