    Me too! And Alex Ovechkin winning a cup wouldn't be a horrible thing either. One of the best players without a Cup.

    Trying to be strong and not buy a $700 ticket to a SCF game right now. I was mostly rooting for Tampa so I wouldn't have the temptation.

    Live in DC and this seems to be a different Caps team. I'm predicting Caps in 5, although VGK has been pretty tough all year and especially in the playoffs at T-Mobile. Either way, it'll be a good story....Ovechkin finally getting a Cup, or the Knights ending their storybook season with one.

    So excited to be in Vegas during Stanley Cup! I'll be there for games 5 & 6. Would love to see Vegas win it while I'm there. Either way, the city should be abuzz.

    So I'll be coming in from the Winnipeg area on Sunday and staying until Thursday.

    In Winnipeg, we had great free street parties before the hockey game and large viewing screens outside during the hockey game.

    Does Vegas offer anything like that?

    I even made it onto the jumbo tron inside the arena..although I wasn't in the arena.

    As a Flyers fan, I hate the Caps, but seeing the burning will and desire of Ovechkin has been inspirational.

    I don’t feel a team deserves the Stanley Cup unless they have suffered for it first. VGK has known nothing but success. The Capitals have paid their dues, so putting my rivalry feelings aside....

    Caps in 6.

    Yes, there is a free street party outside the arena during the game with a really nice setup. It will be a fun atmosphere. I am not a hockey fan, but my wife and I hung outside the arena during the first round of the playoffs and it was a fun time.

    Downtown has been also been having watch parties at the events center behind the D. Seems like DonnyC will be in Vegas for Games 1 and 2, so maybe you can go to the party outside the arena one game and the downtown one for the other.

    With all of these relative hockey noobs calling it "Finals" the Vegas hockey contingent will only increase the sentiment shown here:D So in the interest of all of you looking good while the entire hockey world looks upon this scene, as Saul Goodman would say -

    "Time for a little tough love ":

    It's FINAL - NOT "finals". There is no "S" in FINAL.

    It's a sweater, and not a jersey.

    Gotta look sharp for the big dance, eh?:thumbsup: As I said previously - the entire hockey world is watching. Don't make it any easier for them to hate on you:kiss:

    I’m pretty excited, we fly in the morning of June 7th which is the day of Game 5 back at TMobile. I hear the viewing parties have been pretty cool. Are there bars and restaurants leading up to TMobile from the strip? Places to buy merchandise?

    I don't know enough about the Caps to doubt your prediction Breeze, but just saying...

    Vegas Knights as a team have known nothing but success but every player individually paid their dues long before they got to the NHL and their position with the Knights.

    May the best team win :beer::beer:

    I was referring to the teams. I know that all of the players have been paying their dues and then some since the age of 5.

    I meant the Capitals organization and their fans.
