Let the games begin.
Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals finally got over the hump when they beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals to secure a berth in the championship round opposite the sporting world’s most unlikely fairy tale.
The Caps will face the Western Conference champion Vegas Golden Knights in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final at T-Mobile Arena on Monday night. The expansion team has had a remarkable first season and now is four games away from a championship parade on the Las Vegas Strip.
But Ovechkin and the Capitals also are seeking the first title in franchise history and have been brilliant on the road in the playoffs, going 8-2 away from Washington D.C.
