"You should be a role model", Cherry said at the time. But it is the face he made when roaring with the Cup overhead that will be remembered for all-time.
In the after-game delirium, fans screamed as they hugged each other in gridlocked streets and drivers honked their horns all over the city, as far away as the K Street corridor of lobbyist power not far from the White House. "We're the Stanley Cup champions". But the most important number was zero, as in the number of times they advanced beyond the second round.
"Everything in Canada, we act like no other sport. and (Kuznetsov) - Is that his name? - whatever", Cherry said, pronouncing his name "Kuzeesov". We'll talk. I'm not anxious, one way or the other. They had a lot of good reasons to go wild.

- This is a tough one, but I'm guessing both teams won't want to take the first penalty, and we'll see a faster and cleaner first period to see how the offenses shake out. "Last game was definitely a step in the right direction to how we can play". The Golden Knights are 35-13 in their last 48 home games, 5-2 in their last 7 Thursday games and 13-6 in their last 19 overall. Three different Capitals players scored in the first period - T.J.
The Capitals franchise has the dubious distinction of having lost five playoff series after leading 3-1, which is an National Hockey League record.
"I think the history of the organization is definitely an important thing, but we're focused on this group", Washington'sTom Wilson said.
If the Golden Knights can keep the game at even strength, they have shown they can outplay Washington.
