I really want Washington, but there's some dark part of my soul that wants to maximally troll Canada and traditional hockey fans.

Canada is on the Vegas bandwagon hard. They have a boatload of Canadian players on their roster. CBC practically calls them Canada's team. Even the CBC National (news) mentions that the players are Canadian.

Whatever rationalization it takes for Canada to have a winner.

Mr. Wilson is a very effective player and there are many reasons he’s on that top line. He’s good in all zones, scores points, and throws big hits. Yeah, some are dirty and worthy of a suspension. So what? Hockey is brutal.

Trotz knows what he’s doing by sending him over the boards.

Klingberg Jersey. Roussel isn’t a very effective hockey player.

We should have dumped Roussel when we dumped Garbutt.

Depends on the next one. If the Knights win game 4, I bet it goes to 7. If they don't, I bet the Capitals close it out in 5.

What's the sense of being a heel if you're not going to cut heel promos? Like after Wilson walloped Jonathan Marchessault and was asked what he thought Marchessault might say about the hit. "He'd probably say he shouldn't admire his pass," he said.

I knew the Caps had a player named Djoos, and it makes me think of Mr. Wu from Deadwood every time, but I just learned that the guy’s first name is Christian. I mean, really? Christian Djoos? Is his middle name Muslim?

That miss was ridic.

It’s a shame you don’t get CBC. Their opening was several parents of Canadian players, including Neal’s dad. Reeves Mom. Holtby’s dad. A couple others. Players thanking them for their support, parents cooing about their kids. It was so Canadian.

This game makes me happy and sad. Happy because go Capitals.

Sad because I forget what good hockey looks like watching the Stars.

Hold up-- is this an exhibition Cup Finals? Who let an expansion team in here? Didn't they realize how stupid that is?

Bettman’s 500mm dream team. He represents the owners, BTW. McPhee is watching mostly his recent team (who choked every year) kick his current team’s ass, so funny.

Holtby drafted 4th round 2008, the goalie we drafted in round 2 in 2008 is sparing it up in the German league or some *poo poo*.

Can't believe the Caps passed on that Holtby kid three times. No wonder they never win anything.

Why does everyone keep saying that the Knights are wearing green? Those jerseys are grey.......
