Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final is here. Tonight is a win-or-go-golfing scenario for Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. Tampa Bay, on the other hand, is potentially just 60 minutes of hockey away from their third trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.

One of these two teams will meet with the Vegas Golden Knights in a race to see which team can win four games first and lift the greatest trophy in all of sports. Will Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, and a handful of former Rangers be able to get the job done tonight? Or will Ovi and the Caps push this series to Game 7?

The puck drops in D.C. at 8:00 p.m. ET.
