Terrible ending to a great year. We needed Rask to be dominant and he was only okay. The turnovers in the neutral zone, the quick goals given up after we scored a goal, as I said only mediocre goaltending, Charra showing his age, nothing offensively from any of the lines besides the first line and, at times, some pretty awful officiating all meant for a exit to the conference's number one seed in the conference semis even though Boston was a #2 seed.

Oh well. Still excited about next year.

The first half of the game gave me cautious optimism but penalties and that inadvertant trip by our leader was to much to overcome. Rask was good today but we needed unreal to have a true chance. It appears we were outcoached and outskated for the past 4 games-

Tampa is super tough and most likely going to the Finals. Thankfully we have Celtics tomorrow to take our mind off the end of this season.

It does make a bit more disappointed that we were that bad in the final regular season game vs. FLA.

Win that game, and we play an easy New Jersey team before and likely win it in 5 games.

Instead, we were taken to the brink by a gusty Toronto team (Game 7) and it seems we used up all our energy, momentum and emotions on that series and Game 7.

As a result, we looked mediocre the last 3-4 games and just looked tired the last two games. Sad.

But still a fantastic season IMO and the youth movement is in full effect!  8)

Dang, Golden Knights won Game 1 and now they find themselves down in a 3-1 hole. Perhaps Capitals will finally win their first cup.

I'm no Caps fan, but I'd rather have them win than a first-year hot-weather team.

Capitals win their first Stanley Cup championship in Las Vegas!

Too bad, I wanted the Golden Knights to win. Since they are closest to Los Angeles lol.
