Vegas hit like 4 posts including a empty net one before Caps scored. they're toast.
Fire Gallant. This was their one chance to win and he blew it.
GMGM screwed this team up so bad. Literally none of these guys were on the Vegas roster last season. How are they supposed to gel? What was he thinking?
The Knights missed breaks they really needed after generating chances and are down 3-0. Must be bad coaching. HAS TO be.
Brett Connolly will get a ring before any of our core players. Hate that guy
So I guess we were that close to winning another cup after all. Excuse me while I throw up. Staying away from anything hockey related for a while, see you all in October.
Shouldn't have touched the Clarence Campbell Bowl.
Vegas will never win a cup with Gallant as head coach. Just another <insert irrelevant coach from another sport here>.
Caps have taken full control after a bad start. Barring a miracle they're winning this one tonight with Vegas going back home desperate for answers. I'm so happy for Ovechkin right now. I just hope the poor guy has enough heart left in his chest to soak this all in after it being broken so many times.
@Lateriphobia Catalyst we need backup. Get the Monty Python Black Knight scene in here pronto
No point. This thing is looking like it’s pretty much...
Well I'm glad for Ovi if they win the Cup. Pretty much no one else on that team I like though.
If I watch him skating with the cup, I'm going to barf in my mouth.
Vegas' pregame show is sort of boring. It goes on too long to keep hitting the same beats.
rooting for a meteor to drop on Vegas tonight
they scratched Carpenter and Reaves, the only guys with Orlando connections, so Vegas can basically kiss winning the cup tonight goodbye.
Vegas finally scores. It was ugly. But guess what: they shot the puck towards the net and a good thing happened. For the life of me I don’t understand why our players wouldn’t do it. Blame has to be put on both the players and coaches. It is hockey 101. When you go several periods without a goal, it is quite clear that have to resort to basics (and the game is just tighter). The Caps domination hurts because we effectively end up #2 for 3/4 years.
Vegas is such a kind team. Here have a powerplay. Here, have another. Ok have one more.
It's too bad Vegas got invaded by all those Caps fans.
In the end, Gallant was only able to win one game against the Capitals and it was in a game where both teams were rusty as hell with a long time off between games. Basically got swept in losing 4 in a row.
Sorry guys, Cooper is better, AINEC.
Vegas should have sold at the deadline.
It's really weird seeing Ovi being happy in the NHL playoffs.
4 times in the last 7 years Tampa has made the ECF. All 4 times the team that beat them won the cup.
