Just pointing out the Goalie that actually was the key to back to back cups is still alive in Vegas.

Still so so bitter we let him go to keep Murray. I have no faith that he will be better than Fleury for the next three years.

Don't stay salty over that. Murray is still young and has much to learn. He can be as good as Fleury with a bit of time IMO.

Man Tampa is up to a bad start. The need to wake up if they want to play longer.

Byfuglien is at it again! Carrying two Vegas players out of a brawl. :D I really like him in the playoffs this year. Pretty entertaining haha he should wear a referee jersey. :D

Marian Hossa decided to retire. Too bad it ended on a bad note for him. :(

Wasn't expecting a decisive victory like this by Washington! I'm happy for Ovy. I hope they will give a very good opposition to Vegas.

Way to go Washington! I know it's going to be a close serie but if they can head back to Vegas with a 3-1 lead it would be great.

Man! It's hard to watch the NHL finals as a recording while trying to avoid the spoilers. Today I was supposed to watch last night's game when I get home, but of course the radio on the bus announced that Washington had won, and they now lead 3-1. Luckily the next game will be Thrusday - Friday night. I won't be going anywhere on Friday, won't even go to Facebook when I wake up, and then I'll watch Game 5 without spoilers as I drink my morning coffee! :thup:

I hate watching recordings of sports events for that reason haha I check too much sports stuff to avoid the results. So it's live or not at all for me.

I always watch recorded, because live is usually at the wrong time. I update my "info" after watching the recording. Usually it's no problem avoiding spoilers, but the Stanley Cup Finals are a bit more challenging, it seems. :-D

Ovi deserved a Cup, his emotions after winning it were so pure and touching. Well played to the Caps and fair play to Tasku for never losing belief in his team! :-D

Maybe next year it will be Jumbo who will lift the cup :** So glad Vegas didn't win it. We would have never hear the end of it. Got tired during the season of the "first team to this and first team to that." Of course them beating the Sharks didn't help in my case :-D
