The Caps lay a smack down on the Knights and are one away from a Cup.

First Period

  • AH!
  • GAH!
  • I'm already internally screaming, and we're not even two minutes in.
  • Too many posts. Too much Vegas. I do not like.
  • AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Clutches Eller jersey
  • If this goes to seven, I will not survive. I just won't.
  • Larry drawing a power play. Maybe I can breathe now. (Ha. Ha. As if.)
  • OOOOOOOOOSHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE
  • TOMMY BOY. Oh gross. What a pass from Kuznetsov.
  • OH MY DEVO. THE CAPS HAVE BUSTED THIS GAME WIDE OPEN.

Second Period

  • Who wants to bet that no one is going to let anyone forget that Larry couldn't handle the puck there. cue aggressive eye rolling
  • Carlson on Karlsson violence.
  • After the Knights came out so hot in the first, they're back to looking pretty mediocre, I have to say.
  • Ahh those little superstitions.
  • After that crazy first, this second period feels like it went by so fast.
  • THANK YOU HOLTBY.
  • Wait...how is Washington going to the power play after Neal got smacked in the face with a stick??? Oh. Before that. How did Washington not get a double minor for that too though?
  • EITHER WAY. GOAL FOR CARLSON.

Third Peirod

  • Maybe don't make your life harder than you need to by slashing the stick out of Ovi's hands, Vegas...
  • Oh no Kuzy why.
  • This is a far better kill than advantage.
  • God damn it. Of course it was the Real Deal. Looks like that that stick kiss earlier worked. Just needed to make a blood sacrifice to the hockey gods before it did...
  • There is far too much time left for comfort...
  • Far, far too much time...
  • Someone in red please score again... (Hilarious to think that at the beginning of this series I thought my loyalties were divided. They're very not.)
  • DAMN IT NO. Uhhhgggg.
  • And now Reaves and Wilson go sit for two minutes to sit and think about what they've done.
  • YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS KEMPNY.
  • So much for that comeback.
  • Maybe Miller should stop taking runs at Oshie. They're all ending worse for him than for T.J..
  • DON'T BREAK OSHIE. DO NOT.
  • Ovi hauling Kuzy out of trouble/temptation <3.
  • All of the penalties.
  • BRETTTTTTTTTTTTT.
  • Moar penalties.
  • Reaves is making stupid decisions right now.
  • THEY'RE ONE WIN AWAY FROM THE CUP.
  • LARS ELLER IS ONE WIN AWAY FROM A STANLEY CUP.
  • CAPS WIN 6-2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Highlight of the Game

Carlson looked a heck of a lot like Ovi on this power play tally.
