With three minutes left in the third period, Capitals fans organically began a chant that made me feel my own feels.
The crowd, in unison, shouted We Want The Cup. It was deafening.
It was as if, after Michal Kempny’s goal, Caps fans finally realized how tantalizingly close their favorite team was from their first ever Stanley Cup. They wanted the players to know they very much wanted them to take care of business in Las Vegas on Thursday.
"We want the cup" chant echoing in Capital One Arena.

The hockey party eventually spilled out of Capital One Arena and onto the steps of the National Portrait Gallery.
