Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 08, 2018

After years of playoff disappointment and a decades-long championship drought, the Washington Capitals captured their first Stanley Cup with a 4-3 victory over the expansion Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 on Thursday. Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller scored two minutes and 31 seconds apart to erase a third-period deficit, while Jakub Vrana and Alex Ovechkin rounded out the scoring for the Capitals. ... It's been a long time coming for No. 8 (Ovechkin), who is now able to celebrate his first championship in his 13th NHL season and, just for good measure, was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

Good for the Caps. Since they were my Bruin's Kryptonite I was happy to see them finally win a cup. Plus those Vegas home openers were just brutal, the sword fights and pyros were not hockey.

I am truly glad they won - I thought it would have been incredible for the Knights to win but Ovechkin was due.

Long time coming but wish they had waited till ovechkin retired. He's cocky enough without the cup.

Putin should make the dotard prove his fealty by making him blow Ovi when the Caps visit the White House.
