Alumni Update: June 4th
It’s June, the temperatures are rising, people are dusting off the barbeque and getting their boat ready for the lake. It certainly doesn’t feel like hockey season but two former Cougars are still battling it out.
|Brett Connolly||Washington Capitals||22||5||2||7|
Brett Connolly and the Washington Capitals are two wins away from their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. The Caps have won back-to-back games after dropping Game One of the Stanley Cup Final to the Vegas Golden Knights. Connolly scored in Game One (see above) and has seven points in 22 games, playing on a very good depth line with Lars Eller and Andre Burakovsky. The Caps look for a commanding 3-1 series lead tonight in Game Four in Washington.
What a redirect by Brett Connolly! 👀
