Braden Holtby’s save in Game 2 is the biggest play in a non-clinching game in SCF history. 

 

People talk about defining moments in a Stanley Cup Final.

 

THAT was a defining moment for all-time.

 

And now we can say it- biggest DC sports moment since Riggins' 4th down SB run .

I’m honestly at a loss for words. This is amazing. Not gonna lie, when Ovechkin got to hoist the Cup, I almost shed a tear. 

Enjoy it. The feeling may fade but it'll never truly go away.

Well that was a fun ride even if my Rangers didn’t make it this year. This was far more enjoyable to watch than whatever the NBA is up to.

Lifelong DC sports fan. Been a long time coming. The heartache from watching all those good Caps teams flame out in the second round made this win even sweeter. Been smiling non-stop since the clock hit all zeroes. My jaw hurts but screw it. Let's go Caps!!!!

Cool, I can keep watching hockey. If I want to. Which I don’t. Because hockey is stupid. 

 

Youre right. It is stupid. But one day, one freaking day, for us at least, it won’t be.

 

Thats what I tell myself at night.

It's so weird not having a team I absolutely despise being the Stanley Cup Champions. It's been so long. It's almost like we all one won the cup tonight.

 

Congrats Caps!

Every single member of this team was doubted in some way, shape, or form. 

 

Ovechkin and Backstrom can’t win the big one. 

 

Wilson is a dirty player (well...). 

 

Kuznetsov is too inconsistent. 

 

Eller isnt good enough. 

 

Chandler Stephenson was passed on by all 31 teams (including Caps, placed him on waivers). 

 

Devante Smith-Pelly is a journeyman. 

 

Kempny isnt good enough. 

 

Orlov is too inconsistent. 

 

Djoos isn’t experienced enough. 

 

Orpik, stastically, was one of the worst defensemen in the NHL.

 

Holtby can’t win the big one. 

 

This team proved so many people wrong. I couldn’t be prouder of them.

Braves? But they don’t have a half a century long drought?

There are a lot of people to thank for this Cup. Ovi, Kuznetsov (probably should have won the Conn Smythe), Holtby, Eller, Oshie, Trotz, etc etc etc. 

 

But how bout a word for Brian MacLellan? Remember, this is a franchise that once traded Filip Forsberg for Martin Erat and Michael Latta. But nearly every acquisition he made this season worked to perfection. 

 

Devante Smith-Pelly scored seven playoff goals. 

 

Michal Kempny was acquired for a third round pick. Played on the top 4 all season, massive part of this run. 

 

Alex Chiasson came up big in spots, scored against Pittsburgh in Game 6. 

 

They reclaimed Nathan Walker off waivers, he assists against Pittsburgh in Game 6. 

 

They realized their mistake with Chandler Stephenson, picked him back up, and he becomes an integral part of the fourth line. 

 

How bout that for a season from a GM.

Good riddance to this farce of a season. I look forward to the Knights becoming a middling team because of cap problems (no pun intended) and all of the fans losing interest when the Raiders come to town. Let us never speak of the Knights as a Cup contender ever again.

 

Heh.  Are you from Quebec City, or just a fun guy to have at parties?
