It's not over yet. It looks bad, though. Vegas needs to take the next period to slow everything down and dictate the tempo. The line matchups are not in their favor because they are playing in d.c.., so they have to control the tempo, get their offense organized, and get the next goal.

How many times have we seen the Wild start out on fire like Vegas did, but not score and then end up losing?
We have seen this before and if it plays out like it usually does with the Wild this game is over. Maybe Vegas saved some juice to get back in this one....time will tell.

And there is your dagger....
4-0 should pretty much end this one unless the Caps go into complete prevent mode.

It's all about Mo. Caps have it and Vegas doesn't anymore. You guys are right that the hitting is getting to Vegas. It's what I thought teams like Winnipeg would do but they couldn't catch them. The Caps are.

The shine came off vegas last night
That's as bad as you can finish a game off
It was like they were pissed the Caps kept playing.
I've loved the Vegas run but that was an embarrassing last 5 minutes. Babies.
Love the action in here, love hearing new takes on the game.
Great stuff DL, st frank, jeff, and all the usuals.
This has been an awesome season for the league.
I'm so happy a couple of these Caps will finally get some recognition for great careers.
Ovie isn't always soft and cuddly, but the guy loves the game, and he deserves some payback.
He's damn-near carried the league at times.

If only they had Jonas Brodin to show them how to be stoic about losing in the playoffs.

I know that as a former UND player, people here might not be a fan of TJ Oshie but this is a pretty good story about what winning a Cup means to him.

I'm a HUGE fan of Oshie's.

On and off the ice, kid is fantastic.

Just as happy for him as Ovie.

10-4 so far on series picks

I better choose for this one.

Can't quit on the Caps quite yet.
Think they get er done finally.


11-4
I takey

Really enjoying everything about the Caps win.
This is how important that Cup is to real hockey players
They are willing to die for it, and when they finally win it, it's an unreal event for them, for a long time.
We need more players who get that.
As some on here have always said ... if you want players who will die for a Cup, you better have quite a few Canadiens and some Russians.

Cullen was and Staal is, but both of them had given that ALL for someone else.

Odd times in Washington
Weird to walk away after that kind of success.
He's a helluva family man, probably needs a break
Or, pissed off too much to return
He was treated like "win it all or you're done here" last year and did not like it.
Helluva coach, imo.
