    Vegas has lost their poise tonight. Regroup for Game 5.

    Caps one win away from drinking out of the Cup after winning 6-2 tonight. Things got a bit nasty at the end as Vegas was trying to set the tone for game 5. I think they win but the Caps win it at home for game 6

    It is impossible for the Caps to run up the score. They need every one of those goals.

    Maybe. But the Caps are playing outstanding defense, as they did in starting in the Pittsburgh series. I expect them to close it out Thursday in Vegas.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    In advance of his post-playoff appearance on the ice is it time yet for the fans to start their customary booing of commissioner Gary Bettman?

    If they lose game 5, are Vegas fans going to know to boo Bettman?

    Vegas' fans are already better than about 2/3rds of the NHL. Particularly Cup crowds, which are just corporate zombies and their soon-to-be raped dates, anyway.

    Rejoice time! Though just this one tweet, nothing from TSN or Sportsnet.

    That is the difference this season.
    That is the difference in this Cup run between the games that were W and the games that were L.

    But if you'd have told me Michael Kempny would be that big of a difference-maker ... I say that because the rest of the D have been Caps quite a while (Carlson, Orpik, Orlov, Niskanen). Those five and a newbie Djoos. Wow.

    I want every Maine alum's head on a spike and maybe I'll start to believe.

    Weight is fine being kicked upstairs, he's... cromulent. Snow was and is a waste of oxygen. Take him out back, put a bullet in him, and grind him in with the offal over at Belmont.

    But, yes. The Lighthouse rejoices tonight.

    Also.

    Sort of reminds me of being in Nashville earlier in this century (2004 maybe?) when Detroit sent the Preds packing at the end of a playoff series. Typical post series handshake line formed, loosely begun as it usually is by the losing team. As the Redwings begin lining up to shake hands a Nashville fan drawls on about how classy his Nashville Predators are to shake the hands of the winning team. He was certain it was southern hospitality and not tradition, as I tried to tell him. He didn't believe me when I told him the post series handshake was a decades old custom in the NHL, and one mimicked by teams at every level of the sport.

    You're telling me it wasn't what all of the Preds players learned during their Tennessee upbringings?!

    There will be a game 7 for the Kelly Cup Saturday night. I'll get to check an item off my sports bucket list, seeing a game 7 to decide a championship. Should be a blast, this has been a pretty great series in the ECHL.
