Like a loner changing high schools, they now had the power to reinvent themselves and take a seat at the cool table. "We have stains on it", said Steiner. "And the perception of your game can be remodelled and redone". I think we'll see some of his very best hockey. "And a closing window for (Washington) that just got younger, got hot and started playing well".

The Golden Knights were a 500-1 long shot to win the Cup by the bookmakers in Las Vegas back in September, meaning a $1 bet would pay out $500.

The 33-year-old returned in December. With Vegas, he's become Mr. Those deals allowed him to stockpile quality players and additional draft picks later used in future moves in a way his opponents never saw coming. Perhaps that is why, rather than viewing the finals in terms of heroes and villains, Trotz said the matchup with the Golden Knights is good for growing the sport. "So we overreached on the ask, and that's the way it went".

The Golden Knights have needed only 15 games to advance through three playoff rounds, going 12-3, while Washington has won eight of its 10 road games in this post-season - two road wins from matching the playoff record. If anything, head coach Gerard Gallant believes "it's key" to getting them this far.

"Sometimes, I go to my office and wait for my wife, Linda, to hoot and holler if we score an empty-net goal or something like that". The Pittsburgh Penguins gave McPhee a first round pick to convince him to take Marc-Andre Fleury (and his contract) off their hands, and he's now four wins away from being named the Conn Smythe victor as the most valuable player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"This is what you play for and dream of your whole life", the Knights' rugged blue-liner, alternate captain and inspirational leader said a few hours before he and his teammates learned they would be matched against the Washington Capitals in a Stanley Cup Final that not even Nostradamus with a new and improved crystal ball could have predicted in October. "The guys talked about it".

"It's awesome to see how into it they are, how much they care and how much they want to be a part of it", added Caps forward TJ Oshie. "Everyone is having fun and we're just kind of surfing the wave". Vegas has written a story for the ages with its remarkable run as an expansion team.

One team has known nothing but success in the playoffs; the other knowing only pain as of late.

"I'm very happy to be associated with the staff that I'm associated with", Kisio said. "You knew that base was there". But I'd like to think it happens in the next three seasons.

And when you're paying that much, you expect more in return. "You're on call for them all the time, you're trying to help them, you try to steer them in the right direction".

That's simply not true, as evidenced by the betting odds in Las Vegas before the season began. McPhee has his fingerprints all over the Washington Capitals' current team, but after losing his job in April 2014, he wondered if another team would give him a chance.

The Golden Knights have been a bit less prolific on the scoring end. "That's how they get a lot of their offense". "He said, 'I'm going to show you I'm still a great player.' And he did". We made good selections, and they turned out to be real good players. "I can certainly take pride in that".

"I think they still have that same offensive skill, and they can really score goals", said Fleury, who won 22 games against the Capitals in the regular season as a member of the Penguins and captured two seven-game playoff series wins. But the team apparently has learned from its past mistakes.

Entering the 2018 playoffs Braden Holtby had a career.932 postseason save percentage. "We weren't as focused as we usually are in games".
