    I still get chills and tear up a bit when I hear Doc's call for Kuzy's goal.

    "It is Ovechkin moving back, he gives it on to Kuznetsov... moving on in... HE SCAAARS! The Capitals have made it to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time in 19 years! The defending champs, are defending no more." Man, all the feels.

    I never saw that Eastern Motors commercial. Sheesh, it's like Peter Boyle in Young Frankenstein singing "Puttin on the Ritz"

    This brings up a good point. I have never understood why SOME Pens fans on the main boards can be such pretentious dicks given the success they have had in the last ten years? I never engage anyone, except daver ;), because why bother, they shut down every argument with the Cup answer, but the point is why would any of it matter to them? They have all those Cups. I know the Caps fanbase here and could never see us doing that to anyone.

    Now that the Caps have finally won, all arguments/discussions are basically moot, "we have a Cup". Team is playing bad, "oh well, they have a cup", Ovie/Kuzy/Backstrom in a slump, "oh well, they have a cup", and on and on.

    This Cup win buys the Caps so many years of "oh well, they have a cup" from me I can't even tell you. :dunno:

    Game 3 of the CBJ series was being replayed on NHL Network recently. I caught it halfway through and of course had to watch it. The beginning of the run. We were on the ropes the 2nd half of that game and Holtbeast stood tall, and we also had some luck like Panerin beating Holt and hitting the post with a minute left in regulation. Crazy to think how differently things could've turned out this season had the puck bounced differently a few times.

    My wife definitely gave me a disgusted look when she saw me watching it, like still hockey really??

    Was watching the same game a few days ago while my daughter was watching cartoons on the iPad. My looked me, looked at the TV, looked back at me, and said, "Spoiler alert: they won." I think she's amused that I'm still captivated by it.

    I find that with a little more calm, I see things that I missed the first time, especially away from the puck.

    Good point. I'm using it too, not because it is any kind of argument but because it is exactly as valid as the "No Cup!" People that think "Caps Suck!" is good hockey discussion deserve no better.

    Let them cry. They have been crying since May and they are going to be crying all summer.

    I don't read anymore into that beyond the Capitals outplayed Vegas over a 5 game span. The Capitals were playing like a team of destiny from "The Save" onwards in that series.

    I think my favorite part is after Bettman calls ovechkin up... when he turns around and roars back at the team... goosebumps every time

    That's my favorite, too. I also love OV yelling, "BACKY!! BACKY!!!!" when calling number 19 to lift the cup.

    Yeah that was odd. The west got spanked by the team the Capitals spanked. I did not expect that and was scared of Vegas going into the finals.

    There are a couple different versions of the video. The original broadcast was a close up of Ovie but you don't see who he is yelling at. Other versions show a wider view and it's the team he's yelling at. You can see the guys start to go nuts. Pretty cool.

    That whole sequence is awesome. I knew immediately he stopped en route to getting the cup from Bents, to make it about the team as much as possible.

    After he gets handed the cup I am fairly certain the team started yelling YEAH at him, and he joined in, before his first proper YEAH as he hoisted the cup as the music ramps up.

    I may need to go watch it again. And again.

    I still think the Vegas pregame stunt was in extremely poor taste in light of what happened to start the season. Couldn't a few knights just chase a few Caps players away from hitting on their ambassador cheerleaders, and not have bodies laying on the ice? If that was the image the league wants, their consistent and persistent crackdown on hitting and fighting don't reflect it.

    It was lame that NBC cut away from the celebration so soon.
