As much as I hated to see the Knights lose, the Capitals earned the title. Amazing to see such high scoring games with two of the best goalies in the league. Everybody in town loves the Knights. They have converted an entire city that couldn't even spell ice hockey into fans. I don't see the Raiders getting the same feelings when they get here.
Lifelong DC sports fan (41 years), our drought has been looooooong since the Skins won in 1992. The Caps' stadium was filled and about 75,000 were out in the streets last night, the town's been waiting for it. It was great to see Ovechkin and Backstrom finally bring home the cup in their 13th and 11th seasons respectively.
