Sunday afternoon after the Vegas Golden Knights eliminated the Winnipeg Jets in five games, defenseman Nate Schmidt said during a postgame interview that he wanted to play the Capitals in the Stanley Cup Final. The Caps are now one game away from fulfilling Nate’s wish.
Monday night at Capital One Arena, the Caps shut out the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-0 in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Final. Afterwards, Caps fans filed out into the streets where they took to the National Portrait Gallery steps and celebrated.
