The Washington Capitals won the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup for the first time in their 44-year history with a 4-3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights Thursday.After a tight first period the game opened up in the second as the two teams combined for five goals over a frenetic stretch of end-to-end action that saw Vegas twice erase one-goal deficits before pulling ahead 3-2 .The Golden Knights struck back less than three minutes later on a David Perron goal that the Capitals argued should have been disallowed for goalie interference.Vegas grabbed their first lead of the game with 29 seconds left in the period when Reilly Smith scored a powerplay goal into a wide open net with Capitals goalie Braden Holtby out of position and Ovechkin off serving a tripping penalty.
