Shortly after the Washington Capitals defeated the Vegas Golden Knights to clinch their first ever Stanley Cup, Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury issued a heartfelt apology to fans.
“Thank you for all the support throughout the season,” Fleury said after the game, according to SportsNet. “From day one, they’ve been incredible. Sorry we couldn’t bring it home.”
“It was pretty quiet in here after the game,” he continued. “Nobody talked about it. I think we all need a little time to realize what we’ve done.”
Vegas has nothing to be ashamed of following a magical, and improbable, run to the Stanley Cup Final.
