The Capitals have a lot to celebrate, but wanted to acknowledge their competitors first.
The Stanley Cup champions took out a full page in the Las Vegas Review-Journal to congratulate the Golden Knights on a competitive run in the championship series and a historic first season in the league.
“Congratulations to the Vegas Golden Knights on the most successful inaugural season in the history of professional sports,” the ad read. “World class ownership, front office, coaching staff and people. A magnificent team of talented, hard-working players and stars. A fantastic venue filled with passionate, loud and proud fans.
“It was an honor to compete against you in the Stanley Cup Final. We are truly VEGAS STRONG.”
