Default Stanley Cup Finals

Game 1 is about to start. The Vegas Golden Knights in their inaugural season is a slight favorite. Who do you have, Vegas or Washington Capitals?

If nothing else, Vegas has put on one heck of an opening act.

GO Caps and the Great 8!!!

I'm kind of neutral and hope it is a long series. I'm happy that we'll see a first time cup winner instead of a repeat champion.

I've certainly been impressed with the Knights and what they've done all season. The caps have looked good and have been playing a heavy game. They'll need to keep up the hitting to slow down Vegas.

Should be a great series!!

I have no dog in the hunt and would really like to see AO8 win a Stanley Cup. If the LVK win it wouldn’t bother me at all as this would be great for the sport

I have a feeling LV will win as I’ve seen several times when a city suffers a tragedy or natural disaster, their sports team rallies to win a Championship for the fans

I want the SCF to go 7 games with each contest won in triple OT. I love bonus hockey

Great opening period

My thoughts too. I think in the long run Vegas may be too much for the Caps.

Vegas needs to do something about their ice. Can’t believe with a newer arena that they had to keep coming out to fix the ice.

Looks like the making of a legendary series. That said, I’m getting sick of Tom Wilson’s cheap shots. Reaves and/or Engelland need to drop the gloves and put Wilson in his place.

The ice looks awful again. Lots of players falling and bouncing pucks.

The Washington pre-game show pales in comparison to the show Vegas puts on.

Caps smell blood in the water, and are clearly the more physical team ... dominating in every phase of the game

LVK only have 11 SOG w/ 4 min left in the 2nd period not good

The Caps have to play physical otherwise they won't win the games. It's the only way they are going to slow Vegas down. SOG ended up being 26 for the Caps and 22 for Vegas. I think Marchessault hit the post 3 times. If any of those go in it's a totally different game.


Game 4 should be a good one!

I agree the Caps need to play physical which is how they’ve played in the previous 3 series. Continue doing what got you to the Finals

Lets see if Vegas made any adjustments. They're gonna have to use their speed to counter the Caps physical game.
