TJ Oshie smiles while on a metro car headed to the Capital One Arena according to Caps fan Dana Ziegler

Washington Capitals fans at the watch party for Washington Capitals and Las Vegas Knights at Capital One Arena for game 6 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

If anything, it's a testament to Washington's depth Ovechkin didn't need to single-handedly carry the team to the Stanley Cup.

The Washington Capitals have never won a Stanley Cup Trophy in franchise history, but that can all change tonight with a victory at the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

Reilly Smith, with a goal and an assist, Nate Schmidt and David Perron replied for Vegas.

Getty Braden Holtby can slam the door on Vegas in Game 5. An expansion team, the Golden Knights didn't exist 14 months ago. Washington was led by Alex Ovechkin, who in March became the 20th player in National Hockey League history to score 600 goals and just the fourth to reach that number in fewer than 1,000 games.

This is the song the Capitals play after the intro video when they come out onto the ice. As of Thursday morning, 59 percent of public bets are coming in on host Las Vegas. "So, that's all that matters", Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin told the NBC broadcast. They entered the series with Washington having lost only three games all postseason, backed by players mostly in their mid-20s, save for Marc-Andre Fleury, the former Penguins Stanley-Cup winning goaltender.

It's not the first time the pair have taken the Metro to the arena for a game. He also registered 12 assists, with his 27 points the second-best playoff total behind teammate Evgeny Kuznetsov. Tom Wilson and T.J. Oshie blocked consecutive shots, and Shea Theodore missed a follow-up shot wide. Then immediately following that goal, a massive fight broke out. Tomas Tatar redirected it toward the net as Djoos and Perron fell into Holtby's way.

Washington regained the lead, 2-1, just 34 seconds later on a power-play goal by Ovechkin, his franchise-record 15th tally of the playoffs.

Ovechkin and his friends had other ideas.
