The Vegas Golden Knights continue to do the impossible and re-write history and they did both again when the knocked off the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday to reach the Stanley Cup Final.
The Golden Knights’ roster was built by general manager George McPhee and he faced the mountainous challenge of trying to build an expansion team into a winner.
Little did he know that they would reach the Stanley Cup Final in their first year, becoming the third team in NHL history to reach the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season.
“It’s a hell of a team. I don’t know how we did it,” McPhee said, according to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun. “We just played our game and these players played their guts out. There’s just something special about them. They made it happen. I don’t know how to explain it.”
