Whitten Laser Eye will be partnering with NBC Sports Washington digital segments “What We Saw” and “Looking Ahead” segments.
Here are some fun facts about the Washington Caps and what to “look” for:
1st Win Franchise History
This is the second time we have progressed to the Stanley Cup finals since the franchise inception in 1974.
With Wednesday night’s win, the Caps marked their first Stanley Cup finals win in the history of the team. While this is our second Stanley Cup finals appearance since 1998, the CAPS were swept in that last series.
Imagine Dragons, Sting and Pat Sajak
There’s more to this Stanley Cup Final than just the competion on the ice. Game 2 featured Imagine Dragons for the musical pregame celebration in Las Vegas.
Washington is responding with Sting and Shaggy for Games and Fall Out Boy for Game 4. Both concerts are free and will be located outside the National Portrait Gallery on G street.
As Mike Buffer (“Let’s get ready to rumble!) announced line ups in Las Vegas, Pat Sajak (Wheel of Fortune) will be announcing the lineup for at least Game 3.
