An unprobable Stanley Cup Finals could come to an end tonight with Game 5 in Las Vegas. For the expansion Golden Knights, this game is critical – win and play on or lose and end a Cinderella run at the Lord Stanley's cup. For the Washington Capitals, their rebuilding year is 60 minutes away from their first Stanley Cup victory ever.

D.C.-area residents who couldn't get into Capital One Arena to view Game 5 tonight filled the streets around the Capital's home rink to show support. Chants of "We want the Cup" echoed the streets. A jumbo screen hangs to stream the game for those in the streets.
