6 of a kind: Golden Knights outlast Caps 6-4 in Final opener | USAToday
Wow. It's going to be a wild ride. The Washington Capitals need to figure out why Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov were stifled in this game. Las Vegas needs Marc-Andre Fleury to tighten his game back up. Exciting hockey, just as the Final should be.

Five pictures including the Johansen brothers and Colton Sissons playing Pebble Beach. Not the usual spectacular day on the Drive, but I’m sure they will get one before they leave. Meanwhile the burning question is where are Doug and Dozer?

Parents told to get with the program in cross-ice hockey controversy | CBC Sports
"Organizations across the country, including Toronto, have been mandated by Hockey Canada to implement half or cross-ice hockey for children playing in younger age groups.
