Shoutout to Vegas!

Taking out my beloved Florida Panthers by a blowout 9-3 score in Game 5, the Vegas Golden Knights won the Stanley Cup Final series, 4-1, to win the 2022-23 NHL championship.

Leading the way for the Golden Knights in Game 5 was Mark Stone, who racked up three goals for a hat trick. Michael Amadio, Ivan Barbashev, Reilly Smith, Nicolas Hague, Alec Martinez and Nicolas Roy all added a goal for Vegas. Scoring Florida’s three goals were Sam Bennett, Sam Reinhart and Aaron Ekblad.

The title is the Golden Knights‘ first championship in franchise history.

Congratulations to the Golden Knights organization and the city of Las Vegas!

Yeah, I’m bummed out that my Florida Panthers lost, and in embarrassing fashion at that. But as a lot of you know, Las Vegas is my second favorite city behind my beloved Miami, so it’s all love from my direction.

And man, I can just imagine the parties in Vegas tonight.

With my Cats, I’m proud of the team. The past couple of years have been one heck of a ride. Last year, we got the most wins in the entire NHL and won the Presidents’ Trophy, and this year, we’re a Cinderella success story that made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. We weren’t supposed to be there at all. I’m proud of my Panthers, and quite frankly, I have a great feeling about our future. (RELATED: New York Rangers Hire Peter Laviolette As Next Head Coach)

With the direction we’re heading in, it truly feels like a Stanley Cup is right around the corner for us.

We’ll get ours, South Florida. We’ll get ours. In the meantime, let’s just be happy for our flashy counterpart.

Shoutout to Sin City, man.
