    Capitals Lose Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals

    Fans are disappointed after the Vegas Golden Knights pulled ahead in the third period to win the game 4-6. News4's Shomari Stone reports. (Published Monday, May 28, 2018)

    The Capitals lost 4-6 in Monday's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights. It was a suspenseful game where one team rarely took the lead until the Knights pulled ahead in the third period.

    Original story: The Washington Capitals have waited nearly 44 years to raise the Stanley Cup for the first time.

    Their only remaining obstacles are some desert-dwelling misfits who refuse to wait for anything. The expansion Vegas Golden Knights are just four wins away from an astounding championship when they host Alex Ovechkin's long-striving Caps on Monday night to open a thoroughly improbable Stanley Cup Final.

    Fans gathered for a watch party at Capital One Arena for hours ahead of the game, which is set to begin at 8 p.m. on NBC4.
