Ovechkin, Capitals headed to Stanley Cup Final vs. Vegas

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Alex Ovechkin is thrilled, though hardly satisfied.

The Washington Capitals star is headed to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in his 13-year career, eager to put more distance between the Eastern Conference champions and a lingering perception of Ovechkin and the Caps as playoff underachievers.

"Finally we get what we want, be in the Stanley Cup Final," the 32-year-old Russian star said. "There's still a lot of hockey to play."
