Golden Knights vs. Capitals: Game 5 Prediction

T.J. Oshie and Brayden Mc Nabb

UberEats is waiving delivery fees in Las Vegas for as long as the Golden Knights manage to stay alive in the remaining games of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Their unbelievable run during the playoffs might be coming to an end in the Stanley Cup Finals as the Washington Capitals have a commanding 3-1 series lead as they head into Game 5 tonight.

Lars Eller scored the Cup-clinching goal to make it 4-3 at 12:23 of the third period after Devante Smith-Pelly scored the game-tying goal at 9:52. The Vegas goaltender let it leak through his pads, and Eller was waiting behind him to score on the wide-open net.

Washington captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 15th goal of the post-season and was given the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP.

The Capitals had reached the Cup Final once previously, in 1998, when they were swept by the Detroit Red Wings.

Then, during a power play with 28 seconds left in the second period, the Knights scored again - which launched an all-out brawl by the goal that took several minutes to break up and sort out.

It was the first championship for a professional DC-based team in 26 years.

Washington challenged for goalie interference, but the call on the ice stood before Smith gave the home side a 3-2 lead.

Ovechkin and his friends had other ideas.

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.

Washington forward Tom Wilson delivered two thunderous hits early in the game, including one on Karlsson that seemed to rattle the Knights centre. Time for him to turn it around one more time at home.

If Vegas wins and avoids elimination, the Capitals will host Game 6 on Sunday.
