Las Vegas, NV – Not everything stays in Vegas. Lord Stanley’s Cup is leaving Las Vegas and for the first time will be on display in Washington, DC. Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller scored two minutes and 31 seconds apart to erase a third-period deficit Thursday in Game 5, lifting Washington to a 4-3 victory and a Stanley Cup Final triumph over the expansion Vegas Golden Knights. The Caps won the series 4 games to 1. The team began play in 1974, truly one of the worst teams in National Hockey League history. Forty-four years later the team finally earns a championship.
Pandemonium is anticipated in the Nation’s Capital tonight and early tomorrow morning.
