***OFFICIAL 2018 Stanley Cup Final Thread!!!****

Postby PlinkoBuccaneer » Wed May 23, 2018 9:44 pm

Hi, Bucs Fans! :D 2018 NHL Western Conference Champions Las Vegas Golden Knights hosts the visiting and 2018 Eastern Conference Champions Washington Capitals for the battle of Lord Stanley's Cup beginning on Monday, Memorial Day Night at T-Mobile Arena after 8:00PM on NBC Sports. Caps just won Game 7 over the Lightning 4-0 to earn the right to play the Golden Knights in this year's 2018 Stanley Cup Final. 8-)

Amazing if the Golden Knights used this opportunity, to win Lord Stanley's Cup in just their first year of existence in the NHL, and also a climax and feel good story after the concert shooting, where 59 people, and 341 more people were injured in the aftermath by the gunfire by Charles Paddock back on October.

NO injuries, Vegas Born and Vegas Strong, VGK in six games and GO GOLDEN KNIGHTS! ;) 8-) :) VIVA, LAS VEGAS BABY!!!!! :P :D :D :D :D :D

I am probably a sore loser, but I find it hard to watch.

That was quite likely the most elaborate pregame I've ever seen. They aren't screwing around in Vegas.

No suspension for the rat. I guess Reaves is just going to have to kick Wilson’s ass but he’ll probably puss out and not drop the gloves. Even when you have an enforcer, it’s hard to stop rats from acting like rats.

Better team won tonight. When you only block 9 shots to their 38 you don’t deserve to win.

IF WAS were to win the series in 5-6 games, how would everyone look back upon the series against the Bolts?

I (personally) believe, because of the past failures by exceptional Capital teams, they are being given short-shrift and not given their due for THIS year.

It's entirely possible (even likely) that the Caps and Bolts were the 2 best teams in the NHL this year.

could be but I don't think the Caps are better than the lightning,I think the Caps wanted it more and i think we were out coached. Caps are playing 1-1-3 trap and clogging everything up. they are doing the same thing to Vegas right now. it will be interesting to see if Vegas can figure it out.

If the Bolts had smashed them in the mouth like they did the Bruins and Devils, they'd still be playing right now imo.

I'm going to assume you meant to say a 1-3-1.

How does "wanted it more" manifest itself in the REAL world. Yeah...it's a neat thing to say...but it really doesn't mean anything, in and of itself. In my mind..."wanting it more" means you were the better team because you actually OUTPLAYED the other team. Because...you're the better team. Silly...I know.

Same with "out-coached". What does that even mean? Stotz suddenly became a "better" coach than Cooper? After last year, most Cap fans (and NHL talking heads) were advocating for his firing. And they were just before the playoffs THIS YEAR. Hell...they were BEGGING for it.

I'll give you this: You've got the cliches NAILED. You really don't know much or provide much insight...but the cliches? You're on point! You do you bro!

Also, sometimes the better team isn't the most talented. The actual form (to borrow a soccer term) of the players and team at the time is much more important than the talent level. And any player who plays heavy season like hockey players will have their up and down periods despite their talent.

Washington Capitals are Officially the 2018 Stanley Cup (Finals) Champions!!! Defeating the Las Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 in Game 5 of the series, and the Capitals defeat the Golden Knights 4 games to 1! Alex Ovechkin is SCF MVP, and congratulations Caps! Since you entered in the 1974-75 NHL season. ;)

I predict Vegas throws a fat contract at John Carlson. It would be nice to get him off the Caps and I don’t think they can sign him at market value.

The fact that every player behind Ovechkin turned, pointed, and applauded this fine, upstanding woman was almost as good as the tits themselves.
