I think now the time comes when Vegas’ luck runs out. Don’t think they have any chance of really taking out WSH. No way.

Before the playoffs started I had a feeling this could be Washington year because for the first time in like 5 years, nobody talked about them as major contenders for the cup. It was all about Tampa and Pittsburgh and maybe Nashville. Any time the team succeeds, I like to look at their players and when they were drafted. Looking at Washington key guys, they obviously have Ovechkin at #1 overall, but that was like 14 years ago. And Backstrom is #4, but also years ago and he has not been a major contributor in the last 2 series at least. Their key contributors are mostly first rounders, but not early ones. Kuz - #26, T.J.Oshie #24, Carolson #27, Niskanen - 28, Wilson 16 and Holtby - 93.

I’ve been saying that for months now and Vegas keeps proving me wrong. I’d still put my money on Washington but I don’t for one minute think it’s a sure thing.

Same here, Kate. Many past years I’m pretty much tuned out from the NHL playoffs if the Wings are out, as summer comes roaring in hard, but this year I will watch a lot of these finals.
