    Really thought we were going to force a game six but it just wasn’t to be. Congratulations to the Washington Capitals.

    I thought the same but credit to the Caps for keeping the pressure on all night.

    Am happy for Ovi, he's paid his dues, And of course Oshie, GO SIOUX!! good for the Caps, they earned it.

    Didn't have a real emotional favorite in the race, but there is no better moment than when someone hoists the cup. Best trophy in all sports, not even close.

    Congrats to the Caps! Well-deserved championship! Also, congrats to the Golden Knights for one heck of an effort by a "put-together" team!! Amazing!

    Sadly, my Sharks blew another chance to win it all; just, maybe, next year? ;)

    Well, I didn't realize the game was last night, that sucks. I missed all of it, but, I guess it's just as well. I hate to do it, but, Congrats to the Caps. After game one, they dominated the series, and brought old Lord Stanley home for the first time. Now, let's hope it's their last time too.

    First the Eagles, now the Caps. The way things are going for me, the Yankees are probably going to win the world series. :(

    C'mon Pops. If you were given one chance to have the ultimate spot of glory, would you rather hoist and kiss the exact trophy that Miktia, Richard, Howe, Orr, Gretzky, Lemieux, Messier, Jagr, Hull, etc etc etc touched? Or have some nameless stable hand throw a bouquet of flowers over your horse? It's not even close.

    Ha, I care nothing for the NFL either. But I love the Stanley Cup. Cudos to Justify for winning the triple crown, I live in ranch country (for another week anyway, then off to Colorado), you wouldn't believe how every bar in town goes nuts for all three of the races, people just flock in for them, it's quite a party, lots of fun.

    Was a lame duck coach as his contract was not extended before the season. Do not blame him at all for walking away. Owner and GM will get grilled for this.

    $300,000 raise to $1.8M a year well below market value for a coach with his resume.
