He helped limit the Golden Knights to six goals over the final three games of the Stanley Cup Final, which was more than enough given how potent Washington's attack was.

The Las Vegas Golden Knights are priced at -140 to take Game 5, with the Capitals valued at +137 according to OddsShark.com.

Metro said on Twitter Tuesday, following a victorious fourth game in DC Monday night they will make a commemorative SmarTrip card for Oshie - if he brings home the Stanley Cup!

In Smith's 14-year career he has become a lot of things. "I'm hopeful he can play, if not tomorrow then in game four". Not to say that Smith is always right, but he does have people very close to the game whispering in his air.

The Capitals are just one win away from capturing the franchise's first ever NHL Stanley Cup trophy. Three of those players had multi-point games. John Carlson added a goal in the second period to continue the rout.

William Karlsson - Wild Bill was the leading scorer for the Golden Knights in the regular season and he has been held without a point in their last two games.

Smith-Pelly, who scored the game-winning goal in Game 4, then tied it at the 9:52 mark of the third period, stopping a pass from the blue line by Brook Orpik with his skate in the slot and then beating Fleury with a wrist shot on his glove side while falling down to the ice.

After decades of disappointment, the Washington Capitals simply wouldn't be denied.
