Stanley Cup Finals

Winnipeg Jets vs Washington Capitals

Washington took to home ice in game one, and it was immediately apparent that this was going to be a close fought series. An overtime victory from the Capitals gave them a 4-3 victory, with two goals from Alexander Ovechkin in the process, who jumped to the top of the overall points charts. In game two, the teams battled it out in another 4-3 scoreline, although this time it was in favor of the away team, as the Winnipeg Jets leveled up the series at 1-1. Two more assists from Brian Little and a goal from Blake Wheeler, sent the Jets on their way.

The Winnipeg Jets were back at the MTS Centre for game three, although it was the Capitals who took this one, with another single goal victory as they ran out 2-1 winners. Alexander Ovechkin made the headlines once again with a goal and an assist. The Jets tied the series at 2-2 in game four, winning 3-1, courtesy of two goals from Blake Wheeler and one from Michael Frolík.

Game five went back to the Verizon Center, and Washington were possibly starting to show signs of fatigue, as Winnipeg scored a second straight win and took the series to 3-2, one game away from winning the cup. The tight scorelines of the early games were starting to fade, and Winnipeg won this one with a scoreline of 4-1, Frolík and Ladd adding two goals each to the tally.

Facing elimination with a loss, game six was make or break time for Washington, and unfortunately for the Capitals, they broke. Winnipeg triumphed to a 3-1 victory as they hoisted the Stanley Cup on home ice.

Blake Wheeler finished the playoffs with 28 points for the Jets, making him the top overall points scorer for the competition. Brian Little ended with a total of 23 assists, easily finishing at the top of the leader-board for most assists in the playoffs. Michael Frolík also broke the 20 point barrier, and Andrew Ladd finished with 10 goals. Ondřej Pavalec was the best goaltender, finishing top of the overall SV% and GAA records. Alexander Ovechkin finished with 27 points, in addition to finishing as top goalscorer with 19 goals. Nicklas Backstrom finished just behind his team mate in the points charts, with 26.
