Default SCF Knights v Caps

I'm not sure why we've been remiss in not having a thread for the STANLEY CUP PLAYOFF final series. I rarely start a thread since you all are so on top of things that I've never really felt the need. So, in any event, I know there are many of you that have seen game 1, and will be watching all the way to the hoisting of the CUP.

The resilience of VGK is something I've seen all year. Some of the game stats I saw favored the Caps in the first game, but in my mind, they played them pretty evenly. One thing for sure, it will be very interesting to see when and who lowers the boom on Mr. Wilson. That hit on 81 will not go quietly. Reaves and Engelland are certainly capable of providing the big hit (preferably) or at the very least an exchange of pleasantries. Even Sbisa has an ornery streak. Maybe a hit like Miller put on Backes; one that renders him out on his feet and limping to the locker room.

Anyway, most of my buds out here who are not engaged hockey fans (Sharks fans on occasion), have all remarked how much they enjoyed GM 1. I don't think tonight's game will be any different.

Could be like the Hawks-Flyers final from a few years back. Tons of goals but not a particularly close series. I think Vegas will stroll this to be honest.

I’m only watching because it turns out my 2-year-old really likes hockey. He sees the ice and says “cool” over and over again. Hope the Lightning come out here for a preseason game so I can take him with me.

hmmmm Ok...Perhaps when it goes back to DC some will tune in. I must say, I am quite surprised at the lack of interest..

I might watch tonight, because it's going to be the only hockey I see for quite some time and I heard game 1 was good, but I have the opposite of vested interest in the teams.

Despite how "great a story" it is for Vegas to be in the finals, the fact that an expansion team made it to the SCF is a farce. Gallant and McPhee deserve all the plaudits they are getting, but it doesn't change my opinion that the whole thing is absurd and a bit of slap in the face to the rest of the teams that have to spend a decade to build a championship caliber team.

And I hate the Capitals.

I find either storyline: Ovi finally delivers, or an expansion team wins the Cup, completely uninteresting.
