Playoffs Week 6: Game 7 East and Cup Prediction


Well this was unimaginable a year ago. The Vegas Golden Knights are the Western Conference Champions. The Stanley Cup Finals begin Monday. Tonight the Tampa Bay Lightning and Washington Capitals battle in Game 7 to see who will advance. If the Lightning win, the Golden Knights will fly to Tampa Bay and relax on the beaches during Memorial Day weekend. If the Capitals win, they will spend their weekend on the Vegas strip. So these are my predictions. I will try to watch the cup finals because well it’s the Cup but I probably will struggle like I usually do when watching other teams from the Panthers.

So Game 7 will be fun. Washington is thirsty for revenge. Can Alex Ovechkin capture his first cup? Can the Lightning capture their second title? Can the Vegas Golden Knights complete the Cinderella story with a Stanley Cup? We will see with the Stanley Cup Finals coming up! As for me I’m rooting for the Vegas Golden Knights along with my dad. Who are you guys rooting for?
