Caps on cusp of Cup after Washington takes 3-1 series lead in Stanley Cup Final

Jaromir Jagr made the trip out to Las Vegas and chose to take in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final between one of his former teams, the Washington Capitals, and the Vegas Golden Knights.

While it's a small sample, the Capitals have had the special teams edge, as their power play is 4-for-12 (33.3 per cent) in the series.

Aside from the thousands of rabid fans who don't want to lose, one particular Golden Knights fan is hoping like hell this team can pull of a historic comeback.

"Beginning of the year I said we're not going to suck, and you know we win the Stanley Cup". The only thing standing in the way are those Vegas Golden Knights.

That's according to StubHub, which told CBSSports.com on Thursday that the Washington Capitals vs. And the Capitals had to replace three top-six defensemen and two top-six forwards from last year's team-yet they marched all of the way to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1998.

The total has gone under in 14 of the Capitals' last 18 games against Pacific Division teams.

The Golden Knights trail the Capitals 3-1, with Game 5 on Thursday in Las Vegas.

Devante Smith-Pelly tied it with a full-stretch goal midway through the final period of the Capitals' fourth consecutive victory over the Golden Knights, whose incredible expansion season finally ended in the desert. Three different Capitals players scored in the first period - T.J.

Vegas' Brayden McNabb took a penalty just 11 seconds later, and Ovechkin set up in his customary spot in the left faceoff circle to put Nicklas Backstrom's cross-ice pass into a sliver of open net. Tomas Tatar redirected it toward the net as Djoos and Perron fell into Holtby's way.

Ovechkin and his friends had other ideas.

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. Vegas will push with everything they have, but these Capitals are relentless.

The Capitals are just one win away from capturing the franchise's first ever NHL Stanley Cup trophy.
