Dozing off now (I was not able to take a nap before the game). I'll set an alarm for the beginning of the third period. I hope I'll manage to wake up.

Have a great game, Roger. Let's go, Caps!

Too exciting, not gonna say much. Caps look good, VGK still has the spirit. Gonna be a good game.

Almost Caps 11:35 left 2nd... 10:20 a deflection I think off Orlov, it's 1-1 goal to Mrchslt now says off Niskanen, Schmidt goal...

now Ovie taken down breaking in at 10:09, Caps to the PP... Ovechkin! 2-1!

7:04 VGK scores, Caps challenge... probably gonna count... good goal (great action), Caps lose the timeout, Holtby shakes his head at the call... Backstrom almost scores, seconds later... Caps offside at 6:11.. Holtby covers at 5:51... 4:31 VGK very physical... Caps get post at 3:47... more chances... 

2:14 VGK to the PP, they score :14 left PP, big fight behind the net... 4 guys (2 each) for roughing... Holtby glove at :10.2, another scrum, no calls this time...

3-2 Knights end 2nd.

Can't say it enough- just a great playoff hockey game. Mojos, no gos, shady stuff both ways.

3rd period is going to be huge!

All the interviews are great, just so glad for the guys. The crowd's not wild, was maybe 60-40 VGK, but just so emotional.

I woke up exactly when you posted 'Washington Capitals win the Stanley Cup', apparently. I did not hear my alarms an hour earlier. I checked the score on my phone, and saw: 4-3 Caps, final. Then saw the crazy way it happened, leading 1-0, 2-1, trailing 3-2. Also the names of the goal scorers: Vrana, Ovechkin PP, Smith-Pelly, Eller. They did it! :D
