The Capitals tied the game back up when Devante Smith-Pelly scored at 10:08 in the third period, bringing the game to 3-3.
While Miller remained in the game, Gallant said he thought there should have been a penalty on the play.
Both teams came out aggressive in Game 5, but remained scoreless in the first period. Smith-Pelly barely controlled the puck and stretched out to fling it toward the net while falling face-forward, and it slipped inside Fleury's post for the veteran forward's seventh goal of the postseason - matching his total from the entire regular season. Their Stanley Cup Final run has given D.C. its closest chance in a long time, and they're perhaps just one win away from ending the drought.
Jakub Vrana opened the scoring with a snipe off the rush at 7:21 before Nate Schmidt tied it up with a shot that banked off the right skate of Capitals defenceman Matt Niskanen and in. It was his 15th goal of the playoffs, passing John Druce for most in a single postseason in Washington history (1990). Goalie Braden Holtby stopped 28 of 31 shots against him, including three of four attempts during power plays. He has a -4 rating over the past two games. Alex Ovechkin, one of the game's premier players who has never won a Cup, has four points in the series. Vegas will push with everything they have, but these Capitals are relentless.
