The Capitals are also the very first Stanley Cup champion since 1991 to be trailing in every playoff series and win the Stanley Cup. The puck deflected off Golden Knights forward Alex Tuch's stick, floated in the air, and landed in front of the net at the feet of Smith-Pelly, who kicked it to his stick with his left skate and beat goalie Marc-Andre Fleury while falling to the ice. "I don't know, I don't know".

Trump also rescinded an invitation to the Golden State Warriors a year ago after star Stephen Curry said he probably would not attend. "I kind of swung at it, and it all worked out". Smith-Pelly now has as many goals in the postseason (seven) as he did during the entire regular season. He had two game winning goals.

The Capitals won their 10th game on the road in the postseason to equal the league record which had been set four times previously, most recently by the 2012 Los Angeles Kings.Washington, who entered the league as an expansion team in 1974, ended the miraculous season of the Knights, who are just the third NHL team in league history to reach the finals in their inaugural campaign. "We knew we were going to get some looks [in Game 5] and we were going to capitalize, and that's what we did".
