There are tons of storylines for the Stanley Cup Final between the Caps and Golden Knights. We discuss the goaltending duel between Fleury and Holtby, Dylan walks back his saltiness at Vegas, we cover the players we are rooting for, and much, much more.

Vegas continues to thrive on our doubts, and the Texas Stars recent success begs the question if farm team success even matters. In this episode, we marvel at Fleury’s stealing of a series and the possibility that the Jets were worn out from their seven game slugfest with the Predators. We then transition to talk about the Texas Stars also having an amazing goaltender in Mike McKenna and their strong chance of winning the Calder Cup. Both the Texas Stars and the Red Wings’ Grand Rapids Griffins have won Calder Cups recently. We wonder why this hasn’t translated to success at the NHL level.
Whoops, we posted the wrong episode. This one is right!
At last, we have balance. For a little while, anyway. We have our very first guest, Ian, Dylan’s brother to finally give the Red Wings equal representation with the Stars. The Jets look like they may be the team to finally figure out the Golden Knights with a convincing game 1 win. The Capitals also start off strong with a huge 2-0 lead on the Lightning. Finally, we give a preview on who the Wings and Stars might pick and whether or not they might be willing to make some crazy draft floor moves.
The Stars have found their new head coach, and his name is Jim! Monty looks to bring a fast-paced aggressive system and be a coach that the players trust. Before we get into all of this on the episode, we discuss the historic ending of the Capitals meme of never reaching past the second round. We discuss the dominance of the Tampa Bay Lightning and our excitement to see Brad Marchand and his licking of players gone from the playoffs. We discuss the insane game 7 coming up between the Preds and Jets Thursday night. And of course we discuss the underdog or underdogs, the Vegas Golden Nights and their historic run to the conference finals. Finally, we preview some exciting things that we will be covering in the summer, whether that be the draft coverage or advanced statistics Dylan did on the stars and red wings’ season.
