    Watching the final game of the Eastern Conference final - winner plays Las Vegas in the Stanley Cup final.
    Fuck me it's more like a mass boxing fight than ice hockey. One scrap was like Franny Lee and Norman Hunter only for 30 seconds longer and no one stopping it... 3 refs circling it watching it and no players coming in to join it or break it up. The players hit the deck finally and the refs jump in. One player had cut his knuckles!

    Tampa Bay Lightening currently losing 2-0 in the second quarter to the Washington Capitals.
    Go Bolts

    Las Vegas has an ice hockey team now? Haven't watched properly since roughly the 99/00 season

    Brand new team and wealthy owners in their first season..... Wonder if opposition fans chant "where were you before you were formed?"

    too near to the swamp thank you very much
    Never really into ice hockey but watched some of the recent world championship from Denmark. I'll watch a bit of the Stanley Cup if they put it on at a time that suits me.

    Vegas were 500/1 to win the Stanley Cup at the start of the year, will be the first ever franchise side to win it in their first season. Pretty remarkable achievement if they do it. Vegas and ice hockey does however seem a very strange match.

    Didn’t think there were any hockey fans on the forum.

    After spending quite a few years going to Pittsburgh for work I got quite into hockey and obviously now support (in the loosest sense of the word) the Penguins. Not our year this one but can’t complain with our recent record in the Stanley Cup, Sully has done pretty good for us.
