|Evgeny Kuznetsov’s breakway goal 5:27 into overtime gave the Washington Capitals a 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 on Monday night Youth Jaire Alexander Jersey , and a berth in the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in 20 years.
Kuznetsov took a lead pass from Alexander Ovechkin and tucked the puck by Matt Murray to end Pittsburgh’s two-year reign as Stanley Cup champions and propel the Capitals into the NHL’s final four for just the third time in franchise history.
Braden Holtby stopped 21 shots for the Capitals, who will face Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference finals. Alex Chiasson scored his first playoff goal in four years during a taut, tight contest through regulation.
Kris Letang scored for the Penguins and Murray finished with 28 saves but couldn’t close his legs fast enough to stop Kuznetsov’s forehand flick from in close as Pittsburgh’s bid at becoming the first team in 35 years to win three consecutive Cups came to an abrupt end.

This back-and-forth series has yet to see a team win consecutive games.
Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams says he expects to be back for training camp after having surgery on his right knee.
Williams wore a bandage on his knee as he spoke to reporters Wednesday after the Redskins worked out in their practice bubble during their mandatory minicamp.
The Pro Bowler missed six of 16 games last season.
Williams said he had his tibia bone readjusted so his "kneecap isn't out of place" and also had a "slight microfracture on top of that."
Williams says he's been in a "cave" the last five months, "trying to get as close to normal as possible. He says it's the first time he's ever had to rehab from surgery and he took it seriously. Being Back with the team, he says, has been "definitely uplifting."
The Redskins open training camp July 26 in Richmond.
