About 5 weeks into the NHL playoffs, and the games are getting intense. The Eastern Conf. Final is tied 2-2 between Washington and Tampa Bay. Last night, Ovechkin played great, but the Lightning goalie was better; TB won 4-2. In the West, the expansion team Las Vegas Golden Knights are up 3-2 over the Winnipeg Jets, who dispatched the defending champion Predators. The Jets and Knights play tonight in Vegas, at 5pm PDT on NBCSN.

Can an expansion team really make the Stanley Cup Final? If they do, what do they do for an encore? Meanwhile, the current Winnipeg Jets have never made the Final, and never did when they were in Atlanta either. FYI, the original Winnipeg Jets never made the Final before they moved to Phoenix. Winnipeg fans must be flummoxed at what the Vegas fans are seeing.

Tampa Bay has been to two Finals, in 2004 and 2015, winning in 2004. Washington has only been once, back in 1998 where they lost.

Game 1 last night was a wild affair. Lead changes galore, 10 goals scored (1 was an empty net at the end). Vegas wins 6-4 and takes an early lead 1-0. Second game tomorrow night.

This is the time of year Mrs. DD and start watching hockey, not because it's not a great game all year round, but because just like the NBA and MLB, the season is too long.

Great and fun game last night, but in part because the Golden Knights won. 500 to 1 shots to win it all at the beginning of the season, they already have a great fan base and hungry bunch of cast offs for players.

It will be interesting what kind of team Seattle can put on the ice next season...it could happen.

Another good game last night.  The Capitals took had a 3-2 lead when their goalie made a great save with two minutes to go. Video at link. holtby-made-incredible-save


The refs called more fouls last night, after a couple obvious penalties that were not called in game 1.  Each team got a power play goal, and another was during 4-on-4 play.  Next game is Saturday.

-The Capitals moved closer to their first Stanley Cup, winning - tonight over Las Vegas.  Their third straight win, for a 3-1 series lead.  After two periods, the Capitals had 4 goals, and the Knights, no longer Golden, had 4 shots bounce off the pipes.  Plus they missed a wide open dunk shot.  

Next game back in Vegas Thursday evening.
