MTA adds postgame trains for Capitals' Stanley Cup Final games in Washington

The Las Vegas area is starting to boom in terms of sports, and the Raiders will likely benefit from the work the Golden Knights have already begun.

The poster not only wishes the Golden Knights good luck, but also ends with the famous Raiders tag "Just Win Baby".

"I havent obviously slowed it down and looked at it but I think hed probably say he shouldnt have admired his pass and Im just finishing my check", Wilson said. It was all Golden Knights from there, however, as Ryan Reaves and Tomas Nosek staked Vegas to a 5-4 lead, and Nosek added an empty-net marker with three seconds left on the clock for good measure. "Hearing from people around the city that just coming to a hockey game in an environment like this makes it easy to just turn it off for a little bit and not think about what happened".

Watch virtually any team but the Vegas Golden Knights, and you'll find the performance before the game pretty straightforward. They became friends after their families moved to Georgia, and bonded over the Capitals, who are in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 20 years. But when asked whether Vegas was the fastest team in the NHL, Washington's Evgeny Kuznetsov flatly said no. "We know how he play", Ovechkin said. "We urge everyone heading to the nation's capital for the games to take transit, so they can fully enjoy the day".

"This season has been the most I have felt a sense of community", one fan said. And just as suddenly, the Golden Knights, this new team that people around here knew nearly nothing about, became part of the healing process. And all of it happened against the backdrop of the worst mass shooting in American history that came five days before the Golden Knights played their first game and nine before their home opener. We were put on a huge platform that was unexpected that very first night to have a ceremony and to get it right.

"He's done a lot of stuff with our staff", said Capitals head coach Barry Trotz. "It was an entertaining hockey game, but if you're a hockey person, it wasn't played that well".

If you're anxious about driving out onto Interstate 95 on Saturday and seeing gridlocked traffic filled with hockey-goers wearing red, there's an alternative.
