"The Capitals weathered an early flourish from the Golden Knights but then began dominating on the scoreboard as Vegas found no luck in Washington. One more win in this best-of-seven series will give the Caps their first-ever Stanley Cup." #ALLCAPS
Who threw a crab? This Capitals fan required two pairs of underwear to pull it off. | The Washington Post
"Jack Merritt solicited advice from a crab-tossing expert before trying to start a new tradition at Game 3." Does cooked seafood count? Did anyone see if his friend continued the tradition after Game 4?

St. Louis Blues And Tulsa Oilers Renew Affiliation For 2018-19 | Bleedin' Blue
"The St. Louis Blues renewed their affiliation with the Tulsa Oilers for 2018-19. This gives them an official farm system with two teams under their umbrella." The Blues have their affiliate ducks in a row. Maybe it's time for us to pick up an official ECHL affiliate?
NHL Buyout Candidates: Central Division - Practical And Not Practical For Each Team | mytraderumors.com

How One NHL Team Scores A Goal With Their MVCs | Forbes.com
"A brand's most valuable customers need to be treated differently. One NHL team goes above and beyond it how it shows its appreciation for its MVCs."
