The Washington Capitals defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in the NHL Eastern Conference Final in seven games to overcome years of playoff failure and earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Final.
Their 4-0 victory Wednesday night featured all the key elements needed to win a conference-deciding game.
The Caps got an early opening goal from tone-setter and superstar Alex Ovechkin, their defense was in the shooting lanes throughout the game and goaltender Braden Holtby was well-positioned, sharp and confident in registering a second consecutive shutout.
That victory has been safely tucked away and is part of NHL history. Both the Caps and the Western Conference champion Vegas Golden Knights are counting down the hours until Monday night’s championship series opener.
