Sbisa with the pizza delivery that costs Vegas the Cup. Well not really but that was a common occurrence in Vancouver

Ovi did it. I can't believe it.

Just read in the game summary that smith-pelley scored the tying and eller got the winner. Good for them - hard workers. And great for Ovi - he put his time in... and then some.

It's 16 wins to the Cup. We've got an All-World Goalie, a half-sized Center and a stud D. He's dark.... and he doesn't play the 'white' way.

Hit it.

Ladies and Gents,

the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals are over. Congratulations are in order for Washington and Alex Ovechkin. This is our 16th NHL season together. I have enjoyed them all with all of you. Thank you for your friendship and love of the great game of ice hockey over the years. It's a fantastic accomplishment for our little board. I, very much, look forward to sharing our 17th season together. Peace and love,

RW (Skip)

Right back atcha buddy!

Fun, fun season. For me this was a much-needed season of fun after the previous one damn near broke me as a fan. Wife will be quite pleased to know it's all over. :lol: She always complains that hockey season is way too long.

Congrats to Ovi. The whole "Team Putin" thing really rubbed me the wrong way but I simply could not root against the guy. And yeah, not thrilled to see Tom Wilson get to hoist the Cup either. Buuuuut...very happy for guys like Trotz, Backstrom, Beagle (who becomes the first person in history to win championships in the ECHL, AHL, and NHL), Smith-Pelly, and Holtby.

Incidentally, it was two of Vegas's truly expansion-type defensemen who cost them dearly in Game 5. Deryk Engelland takes an ill-advised pinch and launches a wrister wide of the net. All three forwards are caught deep as he does so. Puck goes the other way and Brayden McNabb, the only guy back, fails to pick up on the fact that Vrana is wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide open to his right. Breakaway and boom, Caps score the first goal of the game. One of the few moments this postseason Vegas actually looked like an expansion club.

Anyway, I enjoyed it thoroughly but I'm glad it's over. Now we can get ready for the draft and free agency!!!

Congratulations to the Caps and especially to Ovi - far overdue and well deserved. And here here to at least another 18 seasons for our little board! Hard to believe.

Man, Ovi finally got his Cup. Great to see(despite the Putin shit). Nobody can look at him and say he didn't want it. He was completely over the moon.

Yeeeaahhhh we won the Cup yeaaaaahhhhh!!!!! Oh... BOOBIES! LOOK EVERYONE! BOOBIES!

I really hope the Caps winning finally brings to an end that faulty narrative that only North American players, specifically good ol' Canadian boys, win championships.

A team led by two Russians, a Swede, a Dane and no Canadian defencemen won a Cup.

I still hate the Putin factor.

Fuck Ovie.

Fuck Trump.

Fuck all the Oligarchs

And the Koch brothers.

I'm sharpening the guillotine and waiting for the fucking revolution bitches.

I must be getting old. I'm looking at Ovi and the Caps on their epic bender/tour with the Cup and I'm just getting queasy at the thought of trying to keep up. Twenty years ago I'd have been "sign me up!"
