Here are the Cup odds for the eight remaining teams:
My son had just finished telling me Stoll always shoots high glove. And yet. The boy is 8 years old. It’s his first series win as a Kings’ fan. He jumped up and down for at least 30 seconds. As we all know, 11 years since the last series win. And before that, 1993.…
The distinction made by Joe Pelletier in the post below is, in my opinion, the central issue in the recent suspension debate.
