Caps finally seal return berth in Stanley Cup final

TAMPA, Fla.—Alex Ovechkin lifted the Prince of Wales Trophy, spun around, and set it back down on a table.

The rest of the Capitals joined him for a team photo after blanking the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-0 last night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final—a victory that sent Washington to the Stanley Cup final for the first time in 20 years.

Pricey nude

NEW YORK—A painting of a defiantly nude woman that once was censored as obscene in Paris has sold for more than $157 million at an auction in New York City.

The 1917 painting by Amedeo Modigliani was the highlight of Sotheby's Monday evening auction of impressionist and modern art.

Sotheby's said the painting had the highest pre-auction estimate for an artwork at $150 million.
