Daily Nuggets: Golden Knights Pay the Price, It’s Florida in Stanley Cup Final



Matthew Tkachuk, Florida Panthers Stanley Cup Final

The Vegas Golden Knights pay the price to win, and their mantra echoes that of a previous back-to-back Stanley Cup winner. Jamie Benn got a two-game suspension, and Max Domi earned a $5,000 fine. The Florida Panthers blazed a trail through the best teams in the Eastern Conference, and they await in the Stanley Cup Final. And we’ll take a look at low-cost options on the UFA market.

It’s been a long week away from Las Vegas. I’m coming “home” in a few days. I can’t wait to see you all. What an amazing city (outside the strip) and such a welcoming fan base. We have an exciting new writer we’ll announce soon, and we’re still interviewing for a full-time beat reporter, but I’m pretty happy to hang out as long as possible!

Let’s get to the hockey stuff.

Vegas Golden Knights / Stanley Cup Playoffs

Vegas Hockey Now: Shame! Shame! Shame! Max Domi was fined $5,000 for slashing Mark Stone. Jamie Benn said he didn’t mean to cross-check Stone but fell braced himself and fell onto his face. No, seriously, that’s what he said. The NHL didn’t buy it. They issued a two-game suspension for the Dallas Stars captain.

“It hurts to win.” They have paid the price to get to this point. Those are the T-shirts, and that is the mantra of these Vegas Golden Knights.

Florida Hockey Now: Matthew Tkachuk. What a wrecking ball in that series. He scored three game-winners in four games, including scoring with FOUR seconds remaining to win Game 4 and complete the sweep for the Florida Panthers.

They touched the trophy, but the Florida Panthers want more.

NHL News & National Hockey Now:

the hit on Stone was absolutely deliberate! And you can see it in the video. It was a disgrace and I’m glad he’s been suspended Plus he’s had these issues before ….get rid of him ! The other issue were some of the fans.. so ridiculous… Very sore losers!! Vegas is going to take him tonight too… Go knights go!!!
