After ’emotional’ Stanley Cup Final run, Capitals want to deliver ‘something special’ for fans in Game Five
LAS VEGAS — As pop music blared inside an empty T-Mobile Arena, a few members Washington Capitals spoke to media a couple hours before Game Five of the Stanley Cup Final. The Capitals are up three games to one on the Vegas Golden Knights. A win Thursday night would give Washington their first Stanley Cup championship in their 44-year history.
“We just want to get that fourth one,” Nicklas Backstrom said of closing out the series on the road. “Our fans have been waiting a long time for this. It’s been an emotional playoff with a lot of people involved, our fans. I think they deserve something special here.”
