Imagine telling someone at the beginning of the NHL season that the Vegas Golden Knights and the seemingly cursed Washington Capitals. And yet, here we are, two teams that have defied the odds every step of the way this year. No matter who wins this series, someone is getting their first Cup. The Golden Knights in their inaugural season, or the Capitals in their 44th year.

The Golden Knights are looking to top off one of the most amazing seasons we’ve seen in sports. An expansion team in today’s league making the Stanley Cup Final, by any metric, should never have happened. But the Golden Knights, led by Marc-Andre Fleury in the net and Jonathan Marchessault offensively this postseason, took down the Kings, Sharks and Jets to put themselves in position to do what no one thought possible at the beginning of the season.

Then there’s Washington, and if you can hear that name without thinking “Caps’ year!” then you may need a jump start. The Capitals won their first three series in three equally unexpected different ways. First, they fell down 2-0 to the Blue Jackets before storming back to win in six. Then they beat the Penguins, a Herculean accomplishment for the Capitals any given year. Then they went up 2-0 on the Lightning, lost three in a row, and just when it looked like they were going to choke away a Stanley Cup Final appearance, they won their final two games to advance.

No matter who wins this series, it’s a truly remarkable story on both sides.
