John Walton said what all Washington Capitals fans were thinking: “The demons have been exorcised!”

That was what Walton exclaimed after Evgeny Kuznetsov’s overtime goal eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins and lifted the Capitals to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time in 20 years.

The veteran broadcaster’s call hit every right note, packing the years of frustration and seconds of elation into one precise call.

It’s almost as if the moment was two decades in the making.
