Hey you! The Stanley Cup finals begin tonight. The Tampa Bay Lightning will look to start their three-peat effort while the Colorado Avalanche will look to win their first championship of the Nathan MacKinnon era. Puck Drop is at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Former Capital Andre Burakovsky (#95 Avs) is back in the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 2018. Burkie hopes to make his own story with the Avs, where he’s one of the team’s best forwards.
This is our first live blog since the Capitals were eliminated by the Florida Panthers in the sixth game of the first round. So please love and appreciate it and comment lots and lots.
Here are our (and Keith Aucoin and Keith, a Coin’s) predictions.
