Down one game in the Stanley Cup Final is better than not being in the Stanley Cup Final at all. Clear eyes, full hearts, folks. Believe in the boys and believe in yourself.
Puck drop is at 8PM (but if tonight is anything like last game…the puck will drop closer to 8:30PM) on NBCSN. After the game, Peter will have your usual recap.
The final regular season stats:
|Shot Attempt %||51.5%||48.3%|
Yesterday, Washington Post’s very own Isabelle Khurshudyan reported that there are no changes in the lineup:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Connolly
Stephenson – Beagle – DSP
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
While we might also have cute pets on our end (see Ovie the Bulldog), Vegas has some preeeetty steep competition with none other than Bark-Andre Furry. I’m obsessed with him.

If you don’t follow me on social media, you might not know that I have recently been very sick. Still can’t get over whatever is happening in my body, so I’ve been getting into things like Wild Wild Country and Evil Genius. Basically, I’ve been doing my usual thing and digging for fun conspiracy theories and crime stuff, so imagine my surprise when I not only got an excellent article about the owner of the 76ers possibly having some burner twitter accounts to criticize his players, but I also got this story about a journalist being shot and killed….then showing up to a conference ALIVE to confirm he faked his own death!!!
So, listen to this. It was reported that Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko (a big critic of the Kremlin) was shot and killed in Kiev on Tuesday. Apparently, there were plots to kill him, so he faked his death to expose the people that were trying to kill him. Less than 24 hours after his death was announced, Babchenko waltzed in to a press conference to a smattering of applause and probably some very confused people. You can see him take the podium in the tweet below. He starts by apologizing to people that had to mourn his death…including his wife.

I just want to say, if I am faking my own death and surprising people at a conference, I don’t want the reception above. I need people screaming and crying tears of joy.
