Jagr shows up in Vegas for Game 5 of Stanley Cup Final

The Washington Capitals have an opportunity to raise the Stanley Cup for the very first time in team history if they can defeat the Vegas Golden Knights tonight in Game Five.

Washington entered the third period in Las Vegas down 3-2, but a pair unanswered goals in the final period sealed the Cup. The Capitals took firm control of the series after taking both games on home ice, but Vegas can claw their way back with a win on home ice.

The Capitals are one victory away from delivering D.C.'s first championship in a major sport since the Redskins won Super Bowl XXVI in 1992. The Golden Knights won 51 - plus another 13 in the playoffs. The over is 2-2 in the series, cashing in Game 1 and Game 4. They also have history on their side in that only one National Hockey League team has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Cup Final and won, and it hasn't happened for 76 years. Ovechkin has 26 points in 26 potential series-clinching games in his career.

- 10 different players recorded a point in their Game 4 win.

When the game went final, it looked a little something like this.

But through four games of the Stanley Cup Final, the defensemen have let Fleury down. If they can turn it around and get back to being to Golden Knights we remember, they might have a chance, but the damage may already be done.

The Golden Knights pulled Fleury for an extra attacker with 2:04 remaining. The type of shot that the Capitals have created on almost every goal in this series.

"I can't tell what's going to happen [Thursday], but I can tell you you're going to need your best game if you want to get this done".

Nate Schmidt and David Perron also scored in the second period, but Fleury's 29 saves included a stopped puck that dropped underneath him where Eller swept it home for the Cup-winning goal. Reilly Smith made it 3-2 just before the intermission when a spinning Alex Tuch pass left him with an empty net.
