The Washington Capitals won the 2018 Stanley Cup, and when sports teams win championships, players often can't describe their own emotions. It doesn't do the accomplishment justice.
It's been an incredible and memorable Stanley Cup Final series through four games, and now the Capitals can close it out in Game 5 on the road.

Washington challenged for goalie interference, but the call on the ice stood before Smith gave the home side a 3-2 lead.
Near the end of the second, William Karlsson received a pass and was wide open in the Vegas offensive zone, and Ovechkin tripped him to prevent a goal.
